Commercial Office Building

Commercial Office Building
IRMA (Inverted Roof Membrane Assembly) Roofing Design

This 15-story commercial office building was constructed circa 1987. The existing roofing assembly consists of stone ballast on rigid insulation placed over a roofing membrane. The building also has two penthouse levels at the center that house mechanical equipment, stairs, and elevators.

Walker performed a condition assessment of the roofing and flashing to determine the extent of deterioration. We also provided two redesign options: one for conventional roofing and one for an IRMA system.

In addition to the roofing replacement, the client is planning to replace some of the equipment. Walker’s cost-efficient designs, and the timely delivery provided, created a value-added recommendation for the client.
