Employees with The Laclede Group have a new place to call home in the recently redeveloped General American Building at 700 Market Street, now known as 700 Market.
Originally opened in 1979, this six-story structure is the only St. Louis building designed by Philip Johnson, one of the most acclaimed 20th-century American architects.
Bade Roofing was proud to be a part of this project, working with Tarlton Corporation and The Koman Group.
Stacked three layers of loose-laid EPS insulation and a protection mat over the new TPO roof system, in preparation of patterned three-color concrete paver system, wood paver, and pre-planted “Green Bloc” vegetation trays that were installed on a leveling pedestal system, including trees in planter boxes and raised areas filled with growth medium, planted with various shrubs, plants, and a fescue lawn area.
Installed a two-foot wide buffer of landscape gravel at the perimeter between the pavers and the parapet wall to aid in draining of the system
Removed the existing gravel ballast and protection mats and hauled away.
Removed the existing two-inch EPS insulation and set aside for reuse.
Installed a 60-mil ballasted EPDM roof system using the saved two-inch EPS insulation, and installed protection mats with new gravel ballast.
