Classic Residence by Hyatt

Hyatt Classic ResidenceThe Classic Residence by Hyatt in Aventura, Florida is not only an active retirement community, but it is also a specialized assisted living facility. This five year old property faced a major dilemma when the original waterproofing systems failed. Due to Advanced Roofing’s experience with waterproofing systems they were called in to install a new waterproofing system, not on the roof, but on the ground level. Advanced Roofing fixed the facility’s problem by installing a new Siplast two-ply torch waterproofing system at the terrace decks, entry driveway and plaza deck walkways, along with the associated Parapro flashings on the walls and flower beds.

An important aspect of this community is the on-site care center that required unobstructed access for ambulatory vehicles...

Jonathan’s Landing

Jonathan’s LandingJonathan’s Landing is an upscale private community located in Jupiter, Florida. Advanced Roofing was called upon to re-roof the golf club building, the Snack Shack, and the covered bridge which led to the golf club at the community’s golf course. A new flat roofing system was installed, as well as, new tile, and copper drip edge.

One the project’s biggest challenges was that the golf club was located on a small island. The only access to the island was via a narrow bridge, which made transport of equipment and materials very difficult. Therefore, equipment and materials were placed on one side of the building and the progression of the re-roof had to be done from one side to the other.

Along with re-roofing the entire building, the roofing crew removed all but one of the skylights on...

VA Medical Center

VA Medical CenterThe Veterans Affairs Medical Center is an 803 square re-roof project in busy downtown Miami.  The project consisted of two phases.  The first phase, “Phase A”, was 163 squares of very difficult roof.  A GCI tower crane was needed full time for all construction processes from material loading to debris removal.  The GCI tower crane required a FAA permit due to the height of the building and its surroundings.  For “Phase A”, the crew, headed by Foreman Tony Jefferson, removed all existing roofing membrane and light weight concrete to the structural concrete deck. Then, a temporary roof in cold process adhesive and new ¼”-sloped light weight concrete and E.P.S. board was installed.  After this process, a 4-ply cold process roof was installed over the new light weight concrete...

Westin Diplomat Resort and SpaThe Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa is located on the beach in Hollywood, Florida. This property offers many resources such as luxurious guest rooms, vast corporate meeting spaces and banquet rooms, as well as, many restaurants and specialty shops. Advanced Roofing re-roofed over 170,000 square feet, including the hotel, convention center and retail areas from May 2008- September 2009. The original roofs failed after only seven years due to hurricane damage, so Advanced was called to help perform testing, develop specifications with Consultant, Williamson and Associates, and design a roof system with higher wind uplift pressures.

Advanced’s Construction Manager, Josh Melgar, was onsite full time to oversee multiple crews and quality control of several different types of Soprema roof systems...

Hallandale Adult Center

Hallandale Adult CenterThe Hallandale Adult Center is a Broward County alternative public high school located in Halladale Beach, Florida. Advanced Roofing’s team, lead by Construction Manager David Baytosh and Foreman Omar Recalde, re-roofed multiple buildings on the campus that still had damage from the 2005 hurricane season. When the project began, the gymnasium still had a three year old temporary roof in place. Advanced Roofing tore off the existing built-up roofs and installed a preliminary roof to keep the buildings watertight while installing new lightweight insulating concrete. After the completion of the lightweight concrete pour, they completed the roof systems with new Firestone two-ply torched modified roofs. In addition to the flat roofs, Advanced re-roofed the shingle mansards...

Broward County Convention CenterThe Broward County Convention Center is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale and is a very popular venue for exhibitions, trade shows, large meetings, and conferences. The building is three stories high and has 600,000 square feet of facility space. Because the Broward County Convention Center is a highly occupied building, Project Manager Clint Sockman performed extensive coordination with the owner to ensure the occupants would not be disturbed during the re-roofing process.

Over the course of four months, the Advanced Roofing crew applied a Soprema Modified system on the tectum decks and a Fibertite system on the concrete decks of the building in different stages. Advanced Air Systems also performed work on the roof by attaching curb reinforcements to all existing exhaust fans...

One Boca Place

onebocaOne Boca Place is a high profile office building located on Glades Road in Boca Raton, Florida. This very complex building had 88,400 square feet of roofing area to be removed and replaced over a period of twelve weeks. The peculiar, wave-like shape of the building required Advanced Roofing team members to pay special attention to logistics and equipment set-up plans.

The intriguing shape of the building was not the only complication associated with this particular job. The only access to the roof was behind the building on a one way private road. Since the job required the use of a foam rig and a vacuum, the street had to be closed off to traffic...
