Rosemary SquareWest Palm Beach, Florida
BUILDING ENVELOPE CHALLENGE
After 20 years in the harsh Florida climate, the roof was weathered and nearing the end of its life expectancy. The roof covering, a modified bitumen membrane cap sheet, was starting to show signs of deterioration. The roof had accumulated mechanical equipment from prior or existing tenants, which was not properly installed and/or maintained. Some of the equipment was no longer in use. There were issues with the wall flashing which was allowing water to infiltrate into the walls and roof system. The parapet wall coping was improperly attached which was a liability in high winds. It was critical to the property owner that the roof renovations address the noted deficiencies and provide a warranty for the next 20 years, while not disturbing any of the existing tenants during the work.
