Project: Columbus Idea Foundry
The roof at the Columbus Idea Foundry had long out lived its life expectancy. Crews restored the rooftop by removing the old materials and laying down new, more energy efficient roofing. The process took a few weeks, but the result is a more energy efficient and watertight roof. New siding and windows were also installed on the clear story. This will provide amazing views of the city, and additional light into the space.
Phase: Exterior work – roofing, siding, gutters
Summary of work:
- Cut away old roofing material, while preserving the interior framing – carry it to a container on a fork lift – dispose of waste
- Install new roofing and insulation
- Replaced non-functioning gutters and downspouts to direct water appropriately
- Add new siding to clear story
Next Steps: Interior work – Framing, HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing
