Honorhealth Osborn Patient Tower Re-Roof


Complete tear off of the existing roofing system including light-weight concrete down to deck. Replacement with new built-up foam with a complex cricketing system and modified bitumen membrane and top-coat. Project included raising all existing mechanical and electrical equipment system to accommodate new roofing and slopes. The patient tower and the immediately adjacent Medi-Vac pads were kept open during the entire project.

Unique project challenges: The patient tower and the immediately adjacent Medi-Vac helicopter pads were kept in-operation during the entire job. Due to the nature of the project, including the high noise levels generated by the light-weight concrete demolition, working thru a very heavy monsoon season and performing several crane-picks, IBC established a strong communications and coordination protocol and rapport with various hospital management departments to prevent or minimize impact to patients, employees and overall hospital operations. Removed roofing and concrete materials were transported to dumpsters with the use of a scaffolded chute-system from ground level to the roof. These materials are prone to creating high levels of dust, so IBC developed an automatic misting system for dust-control.
