Without question anyone traveling through the oval on UofL's Belknap campus has seen the glint of new copper roofs going up on Grawmeyer Hall and Brandeis School of Law.
Urgent repairs to prevent water damage to the buildings started immediately after the hail storm in April, 2012. Besides the roofing material, such things as skylights, windows and rooftop equipment also sustained damage.
