When the Capital City Club needed a new roof for its venerable City Club building at the corner of John Portman Boulevard and Peachtree Street in the heart of downtown Atlanta, they called on Innovative Roofing Group. The project presented considerable challenges including limited access, multiple roof elevations, and a ton of detail work. We developed a 60mil TPO recover specification in consultation with the owner and delivered an excellent result under a tight construction schedule.
In the Summer of 2019, IRG installed Carlisle roofs on the Upper School Building and the Natatorium at The Lovett School in Atlanta. On the Natatorium, the roof was torn off down to the existing vapor barrier over a concrete deck. An R-20 insulation package was installed in low-rise foam followed by a fully adhered 60mil TPO membrane. On the Upper School, a fleeceback recover was specified. However, a large quantity of wet insulation was discovered during the project which necessitated it’s removal. On both buildings all new sheet metal flashings, edge details, gutters and downspouts were fabricated and installed.
Innovative Roofing Group installed a fully adhered Flex Elvaloy KEE Single Ply membrane on the Davis Building of the Cecil B. Day Campus in Atlanta. The project required the tear off of the existing saturated Modified Bitumen roof down to the concrete deck. Directly to the deck we installed a self-adhered vapor barrier over which we installed a tapered polyisocyanurate insulation system in low rise polyurethane foam. All new edge metal was fabricated and installed.
Innovative Roofing Group was selected for the roofing project on this three-story classroom building in the heart of the historic campus. The specification called for tearing off the existing roof down to the concrete deck and returning with a code compliant, two-ply Modified Bitumen roof set in hot asphalt. All new edge metal was fabricated and installed as was a OSHA compliant access ladder and Safety Rail. Great looking pictures; better looking roof!
Innovative Roofing Group was selected to replace 340,000 square feet of roofing at Arbor Place Mall. The specification called for a recover of the 20 year-old mechanically attached EPDM system with an induction welded PVC membrane system. It was a pleasure to work with CBL Properties and their roof consultant, RoofTech Consulting Group, to deliver the project on time.
Innovative Roofing Group was selected to perform the tear-off of the 30-year old smooth surface built-up roof that was fully saturated at the Forest park retail institution. It was discovered during tear-off on the 4 buildings totaling more than 2000 squares that the lightweight concrete and metal decking had deteriorated in many spots due to exposure to entrapped moisture. That decking was repaired or replaced by IRG to ensure a suitable surface for the reroofing. IRG then installed a mechanically attached 60mil TPO membrane over 3.5” of polyisocyanurate (ISO) insulation and all new edge metal resulting in a Georgia Energy Code compliant R20 roof assembly.
Innovative Roofing Group was selected for this challenging full tear-off and replacement on the high-rise, luxury condominium on Piedmont Park. The original roof system and insulation was removed and all debris was safely lowered to the ground with a safe and efficiently engineered roof mounted crane. A fully-tapered insulation package was adhered in low rise foam to the concrete deck after which a fully adhered 80mil TPO membrane was installed. The job was complicated by the placement of an extraordinary amount of roof mounted telecommunications equipment, supported by six different companies, that needed to be moved and reinstalled after the new roof was in place. This required a great deal of coordination and collaboration.
Granular Surfaced Modified Bitumen
Innovative Roofing Group was selected by General Contractor D.A. Edwards to help restore this historic Post Office. The scope of work called for the installation of a new Modified Bitumen system on the low slope section, slate shingles on the steep slope sections and copper details throughout. The end result was an aesthetically appealing and waterproof restoration.
60mil Elvaloy KEE
Innovative Roofing Group was selected by R.K. Redding to complete a 41,000 square foot 60mil Elvaloy KEE recover and metal building retrofit at Jones Elementary School in Bremen, Ga in the summer of 2018. On the metal building retrofit, the OMG RhinoBond, electromagnetic induction welding technology was specified allowing for the fastening of the membrane to the deck without penetrating the roofing material.
