Timing Was Everything

July 31, 2018

With at least 20 different elevation levels, the 146,000-sq.-ft. roof of the new West Springfield High School in West Springfield, Mass., posed some serious timing challenges for both installers and construction managers. Interior contractors couldn’t do finish work until the roof in those areas was watertight, so roofing schedules had to be closely coordinated with other trades. Using DensDeck Roof Board, topped by VapAir Seal 725TR self-adhered air and vapor barrier membrane, provided the necessary waterproofing and allowed interior work to progress while remaining roofing components, including the finishing layer of Sure-Flex PVC membrane, to be installed at their own pace.
