Lodi Library Renovation and Roof Replacement

  • Lodi Library

The 7-year-old 14,805 SF Lodi Library in Lodi, Ohio was condemned by the County Building Official since its heavy timber framing had curled and cracked so badly that it crushed windows and other finishes.

PRIME’s initial work involved an assessment of all 185 timbers to determine the species of wood, grade, and code compliance. Since very little of the timber met building code, all timbers were replaced with wood-clad steel shapes. This required the demolition and rebuilding of approximately one-third of the building, including major portions of the existing metal roof.

PRIME worked with the Medina County District Library to expedite the construction and to provide detailing which allowed the replacement roof portions to blend seamlessly into the existing remaining roof. The finishes, windows, and roof area all had to be replaced. PRIME created a phasing plan that allowed the Library to maintain limited operations and remain open to the public during construction.

PRIME completed design and construction administration services within a very aggressive schedule. Final construction costs were within 1% of the design cost estimate.
