The Approach

When recommending a roofing membrane for our clients, there are multiple factors to take into consideration. The 2-ply SBS modified bitumen membrane is a reliable and energy-efficient choice, but it’s not the only reason why we chose this option. The future building use and design was a factor when choosing this particular membrane. Relatively low staging impact and low degree of impact regarding ongoing use of the building made a fully adhered SBS membrane an easy choice for this structure.

Our Safety Protocol

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our clients decided to use these closures as an opportunity to complete much-needed repairs. When it comes to roofing, we are fortunate that most of the construction can be done safely with the implementation of special guidelines for our employees. Significant consideration and effort was put into ensuring the safety of our team and the employees remaining on-site from the Canadian National Railway Company during this time. We worked with a very tight deadline to complete this project in time for the reopening of the office.
