Cavanaugh Building was the site development and general trades contractor on one of the largest buildings at the University of Akron’s main campus. The five-story structure, Residence Hall, is located just south and west of the main campus on East Exchange Street. One of the most challenging aspects of the project was the successful and timely installation of the roof system, which consisted of cold-formed metal trusses, metal deck, plywood, felt, and shingles over an area exceeding 50,000 square feet.
Making the task all the more difficult is the fact that work on the roof system could not begin until mid-October 2006.
Through the efforts of our superintendent and our talented carpentry crew, the building was completely dried in by the first of December; allowing interior finishes to proceed timely. The building was ready for students in the Fall of 2007 just as scheduled. The planning and effort of our staff resulted in another job well done.
