Building Envelope Upgrades
Investigation of over 360,000 Sf Ft of roof area, covering 11 buildings. Design priorities established based on roof condition assessment and limited funding available for roof repairs. Design included removing and rebuilding 48,000 Sq Ft of EPDM roof systems (membrance, insulation, substrate boards and vapor barrier).
Three phase project: 1) removal of existing built-up roof systems and installation of a new single-ply membrane roof with insulation, including skylight replacement; 2) masonry was cleaned, and the mortar was re-pointed and sealed; 3) 75 windows (6 different style configurations) were replaced to match the historic previously existing windows.
Architectural design and construction period services were provided over two funding cycles for removal of the ballasted EPDM roof system and replacement with a new 60 mil, fully-adhered TPO roof membrance over all 7 roof areas of the building.
Design for re-roofing over 200,000 Sq Ft, replacing mechanically fastened EPDM roofing membrane with new fully-adhered TPO singly-ply roof. Project included associated HVAC and electrical work.
Complete re-roof of building 14, including associated work on mechanical and electrical systems. Roof maintenance to building 26 involved replacement of all exposed metal roof fasteners and treatment of over 2,000 lineal feet of end-panel seams with siliconized seam sealer.
