Shriner’s New Hospital

4400 Clayton Road, St. Louis



• 28,600 square feet



New Construction



Firestone Cold Applied SBS Roof System.

Shriner’s Hospital-St. Louis is striving to give patients and families an even better hospital experience with its brand new, state-of-the-art location at 4400 Clayton Road.

Drawing patients from Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa,

Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Tennessee, Shriner’s Hospital-St. Louis has transformed the lives of more than 100,000 children

with orthopedic conditions.

Bade Roofing was proud to be a part of this new landmark construction project.

The         ade Solution:


The roofing system consisted of two layers of 3” insulation, with 5/8” gypsom coverboard, set in a low-rise foam adhesive to the structural concrete deck. All was installed on schedule, allowing other trades to complete their tasks on schedule as well.

3 Story Building with Mechanical Penthouse

We are thrilled that this new facility will provide the nation’s leading providers of pediatric orthopaedic care an ideal place to care for their patients, conduct their research, and educate the surgeons of the future.




A two-ply Firestone SBS modified cold applied roof system, including all flashing, was installed. This included an SBS premium smooth surface base sheet and an Ultra White SBS premium FR granular surface cap sheet, set in the manufacturer’s cold adhesive.


The building was comprised of two levels. On the mechanical penthouse without parapet walls, an engineered safety cable system was installed by the owner and all work was completed with employees being tied off 100% of the time. The lower main roof system had high walls, so leading edge fall protection was not in use.

A twenty-year manufacturer’s warranty was awarded upon completion.
