The architect is coordinating with the contractor to schedule the final back check of the punch list.  The roof leak issue remains unresolved and legal counsel is advising on our next step(s).
Feb. 1, 2018
Only a few punch list items remain.  It has been determined that there is a systemic problem with water coming through the new shingles and onto the underlayment (tar paper).  In some places water has made its way through the underlayment and into the building and those areas have been tarped.  The general contractor has been notified and the shingle manufacturer is investigating the problem.
Oct. 12, 2017
Work is substantially complete and the school resumed operations on schedule. The punch list work is nearly complete.
Aug. 10, 2017
Work is progressing on schedule; all demolition is done, and shingling is well underway.  Nearly all issues discovered to date were anticipated with remedies provided via the design documents.  The project is on schedule for substantial completion at the end of August, as planned.
