Project Overview and Scope: Rooftop structure (82′ x 92 x 13′ PEMB with an 11′ x 18′ lean-to for the elevator shaft; 1/4: 12 gabled roof slope. Building is constructed on the top level of a two story precast structure. It is a Mechanical Penthouse for the existing facility. Project included multiple louvers, hoods and roof curbs to meet design mechanical needs.

Key Features:

  • LBS worked with GC on design and construction pre planning to insure all needs would be met. Given the difficulties of rooftop staging and construction this was a critical factor in the overall project.
  • Safety requirements were challenging due to the limited space and difficulties of working in this rooftop environment.
  • Project met scheduling requirements
