After a lengthy discussion at Monday’s meeting, council agreed to hire Cooper Roofing to replace the roof on the Peter Lougheed Community Centre.

Work could begin on the project by early summer.

Community director Cindy Bowie said once two HVAC units are installed on the roof, work can begin.

“I’m hoping by the end of May,” she said.

The new roof will take approximately two months to complete depending on the weather.

The company’s bid of $264,595 plus GST includes replacing all the roof drains and gum boxes as required, sealing all roof obstacles and perimeter properly and the use of 250 gravel cap sheet was accepted by council.

Cooper Roofing offers a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty and a 15-year workmanship warranty.

The warranty is important to council and myself,” said Bowie.

Extra costs would include wet insulation replacement for $1.95 a square foot up to one-inch thickness, mechanical/electrical disconnections and lift three large HVAC units.

Coun. Mathew Jaycox said it was important to ensure a walkway would be included in the roofing design.

“We do have a lot of roof traffic,” said Bowie, adding she will talk to Cooper Roofing about the additional expense.

Council had budgeted $385,000 for the community centre roof. The County of Ponoka has agreed to pay for half the project.

The community centre roof has had minimal repairs over the past 30 years and the life expectancy of the tar and gravel roof material is near completion, said Bowie.

West Point/Jayson Global Roofing had a bid of $340,852 plus GST and Goodmen Roofing’s bid came in at $368,713 plus GST. Superior Spray Foam’s bid came in at $204,424 plus GST.
