Taking the final steps

Posted

A crew from Olympic Roofing takes a lunch break after working to set new ventilators on Building 201, home to the Puget Sound Coast Artillery Museum, at Fort Worden last Thursday.

Putting the ventilators in place was the final step in replacing the slate roof and repairing the gutters on the historic building. Replacing the slate roof on Building 201 was the latest in a project that started back in 1995 to replace all the slate roofs.

All the structures on Officers Row and Barracks Row have new slate roofs, as well as the school house, the guard house, several of the
NCO row houses and the beach buildings. Officials with Washington State Parks note the new roofs should be good for another 100 years.

The bid for renovations at Building 201 was put out at the beginning of the year, and Olympic Roofing was the winning contractor, with the bid of $346,000.
