The Challenge

 

To install a sophisticated roofing system on multiple deck types, while adhering to strict energy and environmental guidelines.

The         ade Solution:

 

Bade Roofing installed a tapered insulation system for the flat structural concrete deck providing positive drainage to interior drains with a fully adhered TPO roof system. Staying ahead of the HVAC contractor and interior drywall installation, Bade Roofing installed a fully adhered TPO roof system on the metal deck. The buidling has been Platinum Leed certified.

Challenges are inherent for these type of projects; not only are we rehabilitating an historic building, we had to make it energy-efficient to achieve the highest possible level of LEED® certification by the U.S. Green Building Council®.
