  • Contract #: 70Z08821FPFP00200
  • Value: $505,064.00

Project Details

This membrane roof and HVAC replacement project required the removal and replacement of the existing roof membrane and replacement of two existing Bryant HVAC units over the bowling alley portion of the building.  Cerrudo installed approximately 8,900 SF of new ¼” roof cover board and white Dura-Last 60 mil PVC reinforced roofing membrane and base flashing (Areas 1 through 5).  New metal ‘L’ flashing was installed around the perimeter of Area 4 to prevent further deterioration of the existing roof deck.  Approximately 1,000 LF of new running seamless gutters and downspouts were provided.

The existing HVAC units above the bowling alley in Area 2 were replaced with new units containing R-22 refrigerant.  The existing unit’s refrigerant was properly recovered and all oils evacuated.  New shut off valves, flexible gas lines, and necessary fittings were installed.  Propane was supplied to the new units.  New electrical disconnect switches for the units were installed.

160 LF of new five-foot-high equipment screening was installed at the front side of the building.

  • Value: $207,515.00

Project Details

Point Bonita Lighthouse reopened to the public in July 2021.  Upon reopening, it was discovered that a transformer on one of the power poles supplying power to the lighthouse had failed and was leaking oil onto the ground.  PG&E commenced initial actions by severing power to the light.

Cerrudo Services provided all labor, materials and equipment to conduct emergency environmental testing and cleanup, replace the transformer and power pole, and restore power to the lighthouse.  Cerrudo tested the leaking transformer oil for PCB’s; none were detected.  The existing transformer was removed from the pole and the oil recovered in sealed vessels.  The pole was cut down in sections, then the base of the pole was jacked out of the ground, five feet deep.  The pole sections and transformer were removed from the site.

Cerrudo utilized a helicopter to transport the new pole and transformer to the site.  A detailed flight plan was submitted to and approved by the Coast Guard.  The new pole was set and the transformer attached to the pole.

Cerrudo retained an archaeologist to monitor all excavation work for any artifacts of interest.  None were found.

Project Details

Cerrudo Services provided the design and construction of the roof replacement and roof ladder installation at Building 50B Penthouse Roof.  The roof consists of an upper section (1,168 SF) and two flanking lower sections (each 710 SF).  The design included a new PVC membrane roof system with roof ladder and permanent fall protection system.  The roof structure was evaluated to ensure the ability to support the new roof system and new fall protection anchorage.

The new roof system included two fully-adhered layers of 1.5” ISO board insulation over a vapor barrier, and one layer of ¼” DensDeck prime cover board.  A fully-adhered PVC single-ply membrane was installed over the cover board.  PVC single-ply base flashing was fully adhered and a clad metal gravel stop with cleat at the perimeter edge was installed.  The work included new pre-finished metal gutters, and a new fixed roof ladder on the west side of the penthouse.  A new galvanized guardrail fall protection system with ballasted rubber-footed bases was installed to complete the project.

Three crane lifts were required to transport demolished roof debris from the roof and to bring the temporary fall protection scaffolding and new roof materials onto the roof.


  • Client: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Location: Berkeley, CA

  • Contract #: 7304623
  • Value: $420,655

Project Details

Cerrudo was awarded the design build contract to perform roof repairs at Buildings 50 and 78. Building 78 is a 5,675 SF single story structure built into the north side of a hill. The existing roof is a concrete deck with a fully adhered built up roof and gravel cover. The roof repair for Building 78 was initially designed as a three-ply modified roof system based on the RFP requirements. The client requested a change of design to a PVC membrane roof system so that the existing built up roof could remain.

The existing loose gravel was removed. Tapered insulation was adhered to the roof, then DensDeck primed recovery board installed over the tapered insulation.  A Duro-Last PVC membrane roof system was adhered to the recovery board. The perimeter parapets were raised and new two-piece perimeter edge metal installed.

The new Building 50 roof over the existing library, 2,208 SF, was designed with a fully-adhered PVC membrane system. The existing built-up roof membrane was tested and found to contain PCB’s. The membrane was removed by workers trained in PCB removal and containment. A DensDeck cover board was installed over the concrete and corrugated metal roof deck, and rigid thermal insulation adhered over the cover board. A 40 mil PVC single ply white fully adhered field membrane with water-based adhesive was installed over the insulation, heat welded at laps. New gutters, downspouts and roof ladder were installed.

Project Details

Cerrudo Services was prime contractor for the design and construction of a standalone 2,860 SF Band Room within the existing Patton Drill Hall in Bell CA.  The rehearsal hall is an open space with an 18’H acoustical tile ceiling, acoustical panels mounted on the walls and carpet tile flooring.  In addition there is a storage room and three individual relocatable music practice rooms.

The new partitions were required to meet an acoustical value of 56 STC to isolate the sound and vibrations from the practice rooms and rehearsal room to the adjacent offices.  The space was designed to support optimal reverberation times for musical performances at mid-range frequencies (500-1000 HZ).

New roof top HVAC units were installed to service the rehearsal hall and the three practice rooms.  Each practice room has a separate, individually controlled HVAC unit with dedicated outside air.  The contract included the installation of a fully functional fire alarm and mass notification system throughout the two story 40,000 SF building as well as the new Band Room.

Project Details

Cerrudo Services was prime contractor for the design and installation of a 3,750 SF pre-engineered metal shed structure on the north side of Warehouse 57-1 at Defense Depot San Joaquin.

The structure has fully operational lighting with occupancy sensors, speaker / strobes, sprinkler system with new riser for Type II construction storing ordinary combustibles and weatherproof receptacles for power and telecommunications.  The structure’s siding and roof panels are 26 gauge steel with a roof slope of ¼” per foot, with gutters, downspouts and skylights.  The structure is not attached to the existing warehouse; an expansion joint separates the two at the upper roof edge.

Fire sprinklers, electrical and data are originating within the occupied warehouse.  Piping, conduit and cable trays were installed within the warehouse to termination points at the north wall where they penetrate the exterior concrete panel.  The wall was X-rayed to confirm the location of the steel before drilling through the wall.
