Tecta America Southeast completed this project through a local general contractor, Coburn Contractors. Tecta America had communication with the general contractor from start to finish of the project.
There was a total of 21 roof sections in our scope of work to be torn off. The roof levels were torn off down to the concrete deck with a mixture of EPDM and modified bitumen roof systems over insulation or fiberboard.
Each roof can be accessed through hospital doors and windows. During the project 40′ ladders were used to access roof areas. Low parapet walls on a large portion of the project with a need for parapet safety railing systems.
