 The Vital Structure: 

Data Center Roof Replacement

Issue

This approximately 110,000 square foot roof encompasses a temperature-controlled data center.

Diagnosis

The existing roof system at the time of Vital Structures’ evaluation was found to be an inverted roof membrane assembly (IRMA). The hot-applied rubberized asphalt roof membrane was unadhered from the concrete roof deck, chemically incompatible with adjacent roof components, and was compromised in many locations, allowing moisture to infiltrate the building roof.

 

 

 

Solution

Vital Structures was retained by the building owner to provide a design of a new roof system. Vital Structures’ roof system design included a fully adhered PVC sheet membrane and rooftop insulation to satisfy the requirements set forth by the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and applicable Massachusetts State Building Code requirements.
