Imperial Polk County Courthouse
Bartow, Florida
Owner: Polk County Board of County Commissioners
 
Description:
The construction of the Imperial Polk County Courthouse consisted of the complete re-roofing and re-cladding of the existing ten-story Polk County Courthouse building located in downtown Bartow, Florida. The existing 130,000 s.f. clay tile roof was removed and approximately 30,000 s.f. of deteriorating Tectum decking was replaced. The entire roof was then covered with two layers of 3/32 in. treated plywood, glue-applied membrane roofing, and a 20 oz. Batten Seam Copper Roof. The existing brick masonry and limestone veneer was also removed. All existing concrete block masonry back-up walls were inspected by the Engineers and approximately $1.5 million in grouting and reinforcement modifications for defective areas were directed. The existing relieving angles were replaced with new angles and a membrane vapor retarder was installed on the exterior face of the concrete block masonry back-up walls. Approximately 1 million brick were installed with associated ties and lead coated copper through-wall flashing. On the first floor all limestone veneer was removed so that structural modifications could be performed. The limestone was then cleaned and reinstalled. Approximately 950 existing windows and louvers were removed and reinstalled with fully soldered, lead-coated copper flashing. All interior gypsum wallboard that was microbially contaminated was removed by special procedures for toxic materials including negative pressurization of the removal area and use of respirators. The existing Cooling Tower was completely disassembled to allow installation of waterproofing and then reassembled and returned to operation.
