PROJECT FOCUS


Central Corridor Light Rail Transit Civil East, St. Paul, Minn. Completed in November 2012, the more than $2 mil- lion project includes 14 stations and was designed by AECOM. The project includes 31,248 square feet of Double Lock standing seam roof panels in 16-ounce copper, and 31,668 square feet of soldered Hook Seam panels in 20-ounce copper by MG McGrath. MG McGrath also fabricated and installed 55,972 square feet of trim and built-in gutters in 20-ounce copper. MG McGrath installed Grace Construction Products’ Ice and Water Shield over the plywood substrate for the Double Lock panels. The project was a challenge due to the expedit-


ed schedule and the need to fi nish certain stations on both ends before MG McGrath could move to the other stations. There were 14 different stations along a 7-mile long track with very limited access. The project used approximately 8,500 pounds of solder. Every hook seam panel that was installed needed to be pretined on all four sides prior to fi n- ishing fabrication to insure a quality solder joint.
