Roof Design and Consulting Services
Cambridge, Massachusetts

Gale designed a new slate roof and new skylights for Harvard’s historic Semitic Museum. The century-old building’s original slate roof and copper-framed skylights had reached the end of their useful life span. Original copper flashing was deteriorated and beginning to fail. Gale’s design provided new slate to match the original, new copper flashing and gutters, and additional snow guards. We also designed replacement skylights with new units designed to match the lines of the originals. Gale provided construction administration for the project, working with the Museum staff and Harvard’s Facilities Group.
