Document Description
There are approximately 144 ramadas in the Park within camping and day use areas. They are made of wood and used to provide shade for park users. They are starting to ware out and become safety hazards. The purpose of this project is to replace the ramadas as needed. As a ramada wares out, it will be replaced at the same location with one slightly bigger that conforms to ADA requirements, which will require a greater distance between posts. New dimension and requirements for ADA Ramada's will be as follows: a 12" wide by 18" long cylinder tube for each post is to be filled with 5 sack concrete mix and a strong post tie base #CB 88 to be imbedded in the concrete. The top of concrete is to be 3" above and 15" below ground level. Posts will be bolted (3/4" x 9" carriage) on these bases (total of 4 post). Posts are 8" x 8" x 9" feet tall redwood post. The distance from ground level to the bottom of the first Header cross member (2" x 12" x 12 feet long redwood) is to be 8 feet. Four Header boards will be bolted (3/4" x 12") on the four posts, two at each end of the structure. One Header on the outside and the other on the inside sandwiching the two post on one side. The same installation will occur on the other side of the structure. The second layer will be nailed with galvanized 16d nails. Second layers consist of rafter's 2" x 12" x 16 feet long redwood (a total of 4 each). The rafter's will be sitting on top of the first Header. One rafter will be bolted to the outside of the post on either side of the structure with two in the center. All rafters will be 3'8" apart from each other. Blocking is to be redwood 2" x 12" x 3'6.5" in size. Blocking is to be installed between the rafters in the center and on either end of the structure. Corrugated steel roofing material will be installed with waffle boards under the steel and secured with screws and grommets.
