Hats off to the Academic Building! The iconic building now has a brand new roof. The old roof was installed in 2001, so it was definitely time for an upgrade. Robert “Buddy” Beamon, Project Manager II of SSC’s Engineering, Design & Construction Services team, was assigned to oversee this project. Buddy specializes in roofs, therefore making him the go-to guy for all things roof related! The project, which started in late November 2017, involved replacing approximately 27,000 square feet of polyurethane foam roof. Other details of the project included scarifying old polyurethane foam roof to prepare for new polyurethane foam roof, adding additional lifts of polyurethane foam to achieve R25 insulation, applying 30 mils of silicone coating with sand aggregate and replacing old wooden bugler platform with new aluminum platform. The project was successfully completed this past May.
SSC EDCS would like to thank Buddy for all of his work on this involved project!
