ASSESSING MILLIONS OF SF ANNUALLY WE HAVE A DIVERSE KNOWLEDGE OF ROOF TYPES
Monroe County Sheriff
K2M Design provided design and coordination services for the replacement of the former flat roof and tie into the existing barrel concrete tile roof on the Monroe County Sheriff’s office. The challenge with this project was designing a roofing system over the sheriff’s office where the 24/7 operations had to be maintained. In addition there were three separate substrates where the new single ply membrane had to attach. Our team installed a 2500 square foot 90 mil cool EPDM membrane roof and waterproofed around the roof monitors and 6-feet up the existing barrel tile roof. Our team worked with the County to develop a 4-phase plan to replace the existing roof over the entire jail, sheriff’s office, and juvenile facility.
GSA Gus Solomon Federal Courthouse
The Gus Solomon Roof Renovation entailed 38,000 SF of roofing area. The buildings are both historic buildings so great care was taken to preserve the character of the buildings while installing the best roofing and sustainable technologies to support its longevity. K2M surveyed the existing roof and building envelope to confirm the existing conditions. The existing built-up and sloped roofing was removed and replaced with a new 3-ply modified bitumen roofing system for all slope applications. A standing seam metal was installed on all high slope areas. Repairs were made to the stone coping, stainless steel flashing, caulking, and metal wall panels. Historic skylights were restored and photovoltaics were also installed over the standing seam metal. The team designed a self-laminating system interconnected and fed to a collection system where the power was fed back in to the building to support operations. Renovations were performed to roof monitor metal wall paneling with a compatible product with the metal roofing as well as door replacement and window modifications.
The Bonneville Power Administration Building buildings are traditional high-rise office buildings with over 50,000 SF of roofing area. The buildings are both historic buildings so great care was taken to preserve the character of the buildings while installing the best roofing and sustainable technologies to support its longevity. The Bonneville roof replacement entailed the removal of the multiple roofing sections across the building and replacement with a new 3-ply modified bitumen roofing system over the traditionally clad areas. Special features of the roof included the replacement with a new GREEN ROOF. An IRMA system was installed with large 2’x2’ pavers as the finished surface.
Monroe County Key West Library
The K2M team provided design and coordination for the replacement of the clay tile and single ply roof at the Key West Library. The roof replacement work included approximately 5,000 square feet of new clay tile and 1,000 square feet of 60 mil single ply white EPDM roofing. All flashings, gutters, downspouts, concrete tiles, waterproofing, substrate enhancements, penetration flashings were all designed and detailed by the K2M team. Services performed include team leadership, roof assessments, existing conditions documentation, historical architectural review board, neighborhood committee meetings, schematic design, contract documents, specifications, cost estimating, scheduling, bidding, construction administration, on-site inspections, and project closeout.
The emphasis on the roof inspection was to inspect the current condition of the roofing system and to provide an evaluation of the overall condition of the system components and determine if the overall system is functioning as intended. The report contained information on the building envelope, factors affecting performance, drainage issues, flashing issues, and recommendations for ongoing maintenance / replacement of various systems. In addition, the surveyed roof sections have been photographically documented and graphically documented in an architectural roof plan.
Ohio State Penitentiary
K2M Design provided design and construction services for the Ohio State Penitentary for the roof replacement of over 102,000 square feet of flood coat and gravel roofing that was replaced with an APP Modified Bitumen roofing product.
Lander County School District
The partnership with K2M and LCSD began with a complete on-site capital asset inspection, data analysis and reporting conditions on the several LCSD capital assets and continued with a roofing and siding project for the district based on the initial inspection findings. Existing documentation was reviewed by the inspection team prior to the site visit to familiarize the team with the site and familiarize asset ages and sizes. Prior to inspections LCSD staff provided floor plans of various assets as well as a spreadsheet with assets, location, size and year constructed. The subsequent report results are being used to cover a 5-year capital asset forecast.
