Title
CONSIDERATION OF ROOF SIGNAGE ON COVERED SPORTS FIELD STRUCTURE
Body


BACKGROUND: As a result of Board member comments from the May meeting, staff has investigated the possibility of installing roof top signage over the covered field at the Margate Sports Complex. There are several factors that make this a very challenging proposition. First, the roof surface is ribbed rather than relatively smooth, which complicates the design and installation process. In addition, this roof has a fairly significant pitch, which makes both the installation and ongoing maintenance more difficult. Unlike most buildings of this height and above, there is no direct access to the roof. Finally, signage on the rooftop is fully exposed to the elements, especially the sun/heat, which will limit the effective lifetime of the sign regardless of the material used.

Staff reached out to two sign companies, who came up with two very different approaches. Sign company #1 proposed adhering the vinyl signage to a series of thin 4' x 8' aluminum panels which would then be bolted on the roof. This would eliminate the issue of the ribbed roof surface and reduce the amount of work that would need to be done while on the roof. This approach would also allow for easier maintenance and replacement after the estimated 8 years of useful life. The company provided three different size and layout options for discussion purposes. Depending on the size of the signage, anywhere from 50 to 454 aluminum panels would be required. This is cost prohibitive for the larger signage, easily reaching 6 figures (no formal quote was obtained). Furthermore, this method requires numerous new roof penetrations which generally should be avoided whenever possible. These penetrations would jeopardize if not fully void all roof warranties.

Sign company #2 offered a more straightforward approac...
