Alpharetta OKs $337K in roofing work

The Alpharetta City Council has approved a $337,725 contract to replace the roof of the evidence building at public safety headquarters, and the metal roof segment of Fire Station 82.

Garland/DBS Inc. was awarded the job under the U.S. Communities program, which pools the purchasing power of public agencies nationwide, staff said in a report to the council.

“Cobb County, Ga., as lead public agency, competitively solicited the Garland contract and made it available under the terms of the U.S. Communities program,” staff said. Garland is both a manufacturer and managing contractor; Safe Shield Roofing will be the subcontractor on the job.

The evidence building roof, which staff said covers 6,000 square feet and “is actively experiencing leaks,” is the fourth and final phase of public safety roof replacements, after the jail and main building. The metal roof of Fire Station 82 covers 5,000 square feet, was installed in 1990, and is leaking at the transition of the ridge and eave, staff said.
