Specific challenges the project team overcame
Weather extremes at 7300-feet elevation. Supply chain delays resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Roof removal during the winter was the biggest concern as well as not destroying the existing interior during the process. Roof sections were prefabricated in 10-ft sections on the ground adjacent to the park and craning them into place; then completing the removal of the existing roof sections in a similar manner. I believe we overcame this challenge and minimized the interior disturbance. Other challenges included limited staging and storage areas, design coordination between Town agencies, availability of proper material to match the 100+ year old construction. Craftsmen resulted to manufacturing or custom fabricating materials because they just weren’t available for purchase, including exterior shingle siding pieces, interior and exterior trim, and corbels, as well as concealing new electrical in the walls to preserve the existing finishes.
