ITEM 113-2004-R1101    Authorization to Reroof Fieldhouse Dome; Montana State University-Bozeman

 

THAT:                           Consistent with the provisions of MCA 20-25-302, the Board of Regents of the Montana University System authorizes Montana State UniversityBBozeman to reroof the Fieldhouse dome at Montana State UniversityBBozeman.  The estimated cost for this project is $2,200,000.

 

EXPLANATION:            1.         The Fieldhouse is located on the south side of the MSUBBozeman campus.  The Fieldhouse is open to students, staff, faculty and campus visitors and is heavily used for athletic programs, academic programs, special events, and public service events throughout the year.

 

2.         The Fieldhouse was constructed in 1958, and the original dome roofing served until 1980, when the dome was coated with urethane roofing applied over the original roof material.  The urethane roofing and insulation has reached the end of its useful life and is now failing.

 

3.                   This project will be financed with funds from Auxiliary Operations Revenue (Renewal and Replacement Budget) in excess of debt service obligations.
