Coun­cil ap­proves bid to re­place leaky roof at bale­fill fa­cil­ity

Truro Daily News - - Colchester County -

A Truro com­pany has won the ten­der to re­place the roof at Colch­ester County’s bale­fill of­fice in Kemp­town.

Fosco Roof­ing Ltd., in the Truro Busi­ness Park, won the ten­der over two other com­pa­nies with a bid of $26,266 to re­place the ex­ist­ing steel roof with an EP DM mem­brane.

The other com­pa­nies, TML Con­struc­tion and Flag­ship Con­struc­tion, each pro­vided bids for steel roof­ing.

TML pro­vided a bid of $33,062.50 while Flag­ship’s quo­ta­tion came in at $109,480.

None of the three bids in­cluded HST, which is the norm.

The Colch­ester bale­fill fa­cil­ity was con­structed in 1995. Ac­cord­ing to a staff re­port, the of­fice roof has re­quired tem­po­rary re­pairs in re­cent years to deal with rain leaks and snow melt in win­ter.

Solid waste direc­tor Wayne Wam­boldt told coun­cil it de­cided to re­place the steel roof with EP DM mem­brane be­cause it is more suit­able be­cause of the low slope of the roof.

“It is such a flat roof that metal is an im­proper ap­pli­ca­tion,” he said.

Coun­cil had pre­vi­ously ap­proved $35,000 for the re­pairs in this year’s cap­i­tal bud­get.
