Mineral Area College Campus-Wide Roof Renovation Keeps Classes in Session

Mineral Area College students and faculty can rest assured hail damage from 2015 storms won’t keep them from completing their classes. Hoener Architects recommended Bade Roofing when Mineral Area College reached out for service and advice.

Bade Roofing was proud to be a partof this project, providing a campus-wide roof renovation in a six-month targeted time frame.

The Challenge

To install a sophisticated roofing system on multiple decks and renovate roofs on 10 separate buildings during winter months with no disruption to classes.

The Solution

Close coordination between Bade Roofing and Mineral Area College was crucial in limiting disruption and staying on schedule. Weekly meetings were held on site to coordinate work in areas where classes were not being held or were relocated for a particular duration.

This large-scale project was done during winter months with two crews working on the project in two separate areas in order to speed up production and limit disruption. Bade crews worked many weekends and extra hours to help the project stay within budget and on schedule with March 1, 2016 as the targeted completion date. Work included total removal of all membranes down to substrate and installation of R-20 Polyiso roof insulation, mechanically fastened to the deck with ½” gypsum cover board. G.P.’s “dens deck” was adhered in low rise polyurethane foam adhesive. Then a Firestone .060 ga EPDM membrane was adhered to the new substrate.
