We’ve Been Framed
Don Mosier | Rimini Road

Construction of the new City Hall and Town Hall is now well ahead of schedule, and the framing is almost done except for the challenging roof of the new Town Hall. The city has received the grant from the California Energy Commission for the new solar panels and battery storage system, and there was a great rush to get the blocking in place for the solar panels before the roof of town hall is finished. Electricians and heating/cooling specialists are now working at the site, and the project should be under roof (weather proof) before the target date of mid-September. Being ahead of schedule is great, but it does compress the procurement schedule and is keeping the city staff on their toes.

Looking north in the breezeway between the new Town Hall (on the right) and City Hall (on the left). The roof overhang is supported by ipe wood rafters (darker color) which should last forever in this coastal environment.
