Fortune Fortune 15 Telecom Company
Switch Facility Roof
Salas O’Brien leveraged their team’s expertise to solve this client’s chronic leaking problem.
Currently ranked as one of the Fortune 500’s top telecommunications companies, this client has an ongoing relationship with the Salas O’Brien design team. The company is a world leader in communications, media and entertainment, and technology.
The perimeter crickets of this roof had failed, leaving the membrane exposed. Over time, it had degraded substantially, creating a chronic leaking problem. Those chronic leaks prompted the owner to replace the roof, requiring the help of roofing and waterproofing experts.
Salas O’Brien worked with the owner’s alliance engineers to design new roofing and flashings, using the existing serviceable membrane and covering it with a waterproofing membrane that was compatible with both the existing membrane and the new roof assembly.
Our approach allowed the building to be kept dry throughout the winter project. The design and installation qualified for a 20-year manufacturer’s NDL warranty.
