Diesel Centrale CPM Building Update October 9, 2022 by Paul Harvey Our construction crew made significant progress on the building during September and early October. Thanks to Stewart McKinley and Paul’s West Coaster, all eight roof trusses are now on site. The trusses are fabricated steel with wood attached to them to carry the roof panels. The building is taking it final form with the trusses in place and roofing materials being installed. The roof system should be sturdy and will give the interior of the building an interesting, industrial ambience. At last, the building has a complete, waterproof roof. The roof system gives a clear span with plenty of free height beneath. Although they resemble classic terra cotta roof tiles, the tiles being installed are actually a lightweight synthetic made from recycled materials. The roof tile installation is complete. This building will have a very distinctive appearance at the museum. Trim details are soon to follow.
