4. Civic Center Roof Replacement Project

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to award a construction contract for the Marin County Civic Center Roof Replacement Project, with a total construction cost of $17,842,799. Designed by the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright, the 470,168 square foot building is the largest completed public project of the architect’s career and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Despite roof repair projects in 1999 and 2000, the membrane is fracturing and peeling, resulting in leaks and substantial fading of the iconic blue color.
