The Mission has transitioned from a planning phase into a busy summer construction campaign. Through a competitive bidding process the Mission selected the J.L. Ray Company Inc. to provide a new waterproofing roof system and to repair damaged carpentry elements on the 1975 West Wing Building.

The Project Included:
• Removing and recycling existing deteriorated roofing materials.
• Removing and replacing 14 deteriorated (non historic) arcade rafters, wood planking and plywood sheathing.
• Installing new lead scupper drains.
• Installing new built up plywood crickets sloped to scupper drains.
• Painting all new wood repairs to match the existing wood.
• Installing a new cold application roof membrane system above the arcade.
• Repairing the leaking roof on the Ramada adobe shelter.

Initial project cost estimates were $108,064 and at project end the actual costs were $50,308 (including permit fees, drawings, survey, and contracts) reflecting a total savings of $57,755.
