Lincolnwood board approves contract to update roofs at Community Center

A Melrose Park company will replace the roofs on the Lincolnwood Community Center for up to $183,one hundred, under a complex agreement presented by means of the Village Board on March 5.
Trustees voted unanimously to lease DCG Roofing Solutions Inc. To replace all three roofs at the center, 4170 Morse Ave., after two addendums have been asked of the bottom bids submitted by using six groups.
DCG become the second-lowest bidder, but the lowest to encompass the two addendums after officials located a sloped roof on the center wishes to get replaced and the sloped roof’s deck includes gypsum board, not plywood, stated Andrew Letson, public works director for Lincolnwood.
“We held a pre-bid meeting with all the bidders,” Letson said. “We located the bottom fabric at the slope had to be adjusted.”
The Community Center, bought from the American Legion in 1989, carries three roofing structures, together with that are flat and one that is sloped, according to a public works file provided to the board.
Since the village offered the property, the handiest giant paintings carried out on the roofs became a partial alternative in 1995, the record stated. In 2016, an inspection of the roofs decided the flat roofs want to be replaced and the sloped roof resealed, it stated.
Last fall, engineers determined that the sloped roof had similarly deteriorated and also had to be replaced, the file stated.
The assignment, that’s scheduled to begin in April, is predicted to be completed by means of May 31, Letson said.
Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd., which reviewed the final bids, decided that National Roofing, the lowest bidder, did now not provide a bid on the replacement of gypsum board with a bitumen roofing system, as opposed to fiberglass shingles. Because of that discrepancy, Gerry Hennelly, senior undertaking manager for Burke, endorsed DCG for the challenge rather.

“An evaluation of all bids changed into completed,” Hennelly stated. “DCG Roofing is the bottom responsive bidder and has revel in working with numerous neighborhood municipalities on numerous previous tasks of very comparable scope.”
National Roofing bid $125,000 on the assignment, Letson stated.
DCG delivered $9,020 for tuckpointing and $27,000 for substitute of the gypsum deck, if important, to its initial bid of $147,080, stated T.J. Taylor, provider superintendent for the enterprise.
Nonetheless, DCG does no longer count on to update the deck, Taylor wrote in an addendum to the business enterprise’s bid.
“Due to the structural slope on the existing roof and our personal survey of the roof, we might not assume the want for deck substitute,” Taylor said. “The pricing proven above represents a unit value that might best be charged if deck alternative turns into essential.”
