UNM-Valencia Roof replacements and solar installation


The UNM-Valencia campus Learning Center Resource Center re-roof and solar panel installation project will meet UNM Valencia's goal of having 75-80 percent solar coverage of power needs for the campus and upgrades the oldest and least reliable roof on campus.  Roof failure on this building would result in significant collateral damage to library inventory and technology, and the risk is becoming high for this facility.  

 This project will install new Carlisle TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin)Roofing system made up of a single layer of synthetics and reinforcing scrim that can be used to cover flat roofs. It is a popular choice in commercial roofing membrane that is also highly reflective, giving it industry-leading energy efficiency and resistance. The installation will include an engineered stamped roof drawings for CID Permit approval, removal, and disposal of existing gravel, install required roof flashings, term bars, and other appurtenances as per specs to achieve 20-year warranty, install new scuppers/drain flashings throughout, removal and re-installation of existing skylights, installation of a new Photovoltaic (PV) system consistent with the systems already in place on campus to provide 300 KW. Installation also includes a 20-year NDL warranty from the manufacturer. 


This project will fulfill the needed renovation to the Learning Resource Commons (LRC), which is the primary student resources facility on UNM Valencia's campus. The LRC is the focal point for student support outside of the classroom and is central to UNM Valencia's academic mission.  The facility houses the library, STEM lab and tutoring center, Pathways to Articulation and Sustainable Opportunities for Students (PASOS) program that supports at-risk students, technology support services, and equipment checkout center.   

From an enrollment and retention perspective, the facility provides most of the support services that support student success by assisting students with tutoring and classwork assistance in math, writing, etc., providing laptops for students who need them, and providing books and other library resources for projects and academic research. All these services improve the retention, graduation rates, and degree completion for the campus.
