Civic Center Sees The Bigger Picture, Optimizes Total Cost of Ownership with New Roof

Statesville, North Carolina is a vibrant community centrally located between the major cities of Charlotte to the south and Winston-Salem to the northeast. Statesville's 30,000 ft2 Civic Center balances its roles as a historic central meeting place for residents, with the modern needs of business meetings and conventions drawing corporations from one of the country's fastest-growing regions. 

So when Civic Center Director Kenny Roberts noticed early signs of water intrusion coming from the building's ballasted EPDM roof, he didn't wait for the problem to worsen, and quickly called Garland representative Casey Brandemuehl for an assessment of the situation.

River Trails Park District Finds Purpose for "The Zone"

Sometimes, it takes a while for a building to find its purpose. Such was the case for the building generically known as “550” and located in an industrial park in Mount Prospect, IL. While the River Trails Park District (RTPD) had acquired the facility in 2003, it would take another 12 years, with lengthy dialogue and input between RTPD leaders and the community, before the building would find new life as “The Zone,” an indoor athletic training center that includes parkour, rock climbing, indoor soccer turf fields with over 7,000 square feet of turf – even a 6-foot deep foam pit. The Zone had discovered itself at last, but the RTPD still had a challenge. Could they ensure the building’s stale EIFS (exterior insulation finishing system) façade would match the renewed energy and excitement found inside, and do so in a way that was both resistant to moisture and budget friendly?

Oklahoma Corrections Facility Upgrades Entire Building Envelope

Corrections facilities face unique challenges when leaks occur. It's not easy or practical to relocate inmates and facilities. Operations are 24/7 and can't pause for a construction project. And security is paramount. These challenges were compounded for Sherriff Andy Simmons in Muskogee County, Oklahoma, who identified a pressing need to address leaks coming not just from the roof of the county's aging jail, but from the walls.

While the roof is the area of the building most vulnerable to water intrusion, a comprehensive approach to waterproofing covers the entire building envelope, including the walls. Garland Territory Managers Josh Rhodes and Steve Schaad, together with local contractor Crawford Roofing, undertook the ambitious project to create a leak free environment for Sherriff Simmons and his staff.
