In May of 1997, Peter Rohmann Associates Inc. were awarded roof consulting work involving 47 schools (1,563,035 square feet total) for the York and Etobicoke district of the Toronto Catholic District School Board. The Board had decided that the overall scope of work was too large for a single consulting firm to undertake and they divided their schools into 4 districts, namely Toronto, Scarborough, North York, and York Region and Etobicoke. The intent was to quickly develop an action plan that would be used by all four consultants in order to maintain a uniform, seamless project with the same intent. The overall project also included re-roofing with respect to 3 individual schools.
Peter Rohmann Associates Inc. spearheaded the project, and developed the required AutoCAD templates and specifications. Also, all of the cut tests required to substantiate roof integrity were conducted by roofing contractors in our presence on a unit price basis. Re-roofing work was completed on time before school restarted in September and consulting work was completed in early October 1997 all as per schedule. The School Board was and still is satisfied with the ongoing work. We have maintained our relationship with the Board and continue to work with them.
