Historic Prime Osborne Convention Center Reroofing
Following a thorough evaluation and study of the building envelope, the historic limestone structure was cleaned, joints sealed, and exterior stone treated with water repellent. Water repellents are not typically applied to historic structures, but MLD was able to persuade the National Park Service to allow it on this project as a test case. The steep slope roof and low slope roof areas were completely reroofed. The steel windows were reglazed and repainted. Manausa Lewis and Dodson provided full time observation through the entire scope of the project.
In addition to full service building and renovation design, MLD Architects has extensive experience in roof design and consultation. Randy Lewis is a recognized roofing systems expert, and has written articles for Florida AIA magazine and Florida Roofers magazine. MLD Architects has earned an excellent reputation for diagnosing roof problems, and offering corrective solutions. Due to his expertise, Mr. Lewis has provided expert testimony on numerous cases.
