Anthem Civic Building roofing project to start this week


ANTHEM – Construction on the Anthem Civic Building’s roof begins Thursday, June 23. The roofing project will continue through the middle of July.

The Civic Building, which was constructed in 1999, will be getting a complete roof replacement. In a Jan. 21 memo to the Anthem Community Council Board of Directors, ACC staff noted that the building’s roof suffered damage in the major storm on July 31, 2012.

“Since that historic rain and wind storm, the ACC has experienced roof leaks from periodic rains that have become increasingly damaging and disruptive to daily building operations. During the recent week-long rain that began on January 4, 2016, the ACB experienced significant leaks that required immediate corrective action to prevent further damages or interference with the safe use of the building by staff and guests,” the Jan. 21 memo stated.

Construction will performed by Lyons Roofing. According to a May 16 memo from staff to the Board, the Lyons’ proposal cost is “$111,076, plus $2,475 for optional leak.” The memo recommended that the Board fund the project as an unbudgeted operating expense with available cash on hand.

According to a release on the construction, once begun, the roof construction will start at approximately 6 a.m. and conclude by 4 p.m. daily, including weekends. The northeast section of the lot will be blocked off for a staging area, and certain areas of the parking lots will be blocked off during different phases.
