metrodome roof

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Not exactly an exhaustive investigation yet, but this is interesting:

"The membrane was weathering as anticipated and had exceeded its
service life of 20 years; it recommended planning for replacement of
the roof fabric, and noted that planning and implementation would take
an additional five years and cost $12-$15 million."

Sounds like it comes down to economics at the end of the day,
unfortunately, like everything else it seems...

I just don't like it when engineers get hit by shrapnel when things go
awry due to owner's own incompetence or negligence, specifically when
it comes to "deferred maintenance"...
