Solving the Problem of Rust on an Industrial Metal Roof
A storage facility, of approximately 5,000-square feet, at an industrial complex in Richmond, California had a metal roof of approximately 60 years old that was rusty. The rust was impacting more than the roof. A creek behind the building was tested by an environmental agency and found to have high levels of zinc, which was attributed to coming from the roof’s rainwater runoff.
New Roof System for Retail Building
A building that houses several retail businesses in downtown Walnut Creek, California was experiencing leaks in the roof at the perimeters and projections. The roof, which was approximately 20 years old, was a traditional built up roof membrane with aluminum roof coating applied over a plywood roof deck. The building owner had decided it was time to install a new roof system. Because active retail businesses occupy the building, it was important that the application of a new roof system be fast and efficient.
A Revitalized Solar Roof for San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall
San Francisco has long been known as a center for culture and the performing arts. Showcased by its War Memorial Opera House, considered the last Beaux Arts building constructed in the United States, this legacy continued with construction of the adjoining Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. Opened in 1980 and renovated in 1992, its modern design was a collaboration of architects and acoustical engineers working in concert to create an intimate environment to enhance the music of the San Francisco Symphony and the beauty of the structure itself.
