Surface Area: 650,000 sq/ft

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Palm Springs Mile, located in Hialeah, consists of numerous buildings spread over several city blocks. When roof consultant Jack Brown & Associates came to Advanced with the project after Hurricane Wilma, Advanced agreed to meet strict time requirements set by the owners. A large number of the buildings were operating with only temporary roofs because of the extent of the damage, and were in need of a contractor that would stand by their word.

Advanced lived up to their expectations. Over the course of one year, Advanced installed new coal tar pitch roofs on all of the multi-story buildings, totaling 650,000 square feet – the largest coal tar pitch project in Advanced’s history. A large portion of the gypsum decking on the buildings was extremely deteriorated, making the removal and reinstallation difficult at times because of the threat of inclement weather. But Advanced got the job done.

Project Manager Guy Campbell, with the help of Construction Managers David Baytosh and Josh Melgar, and A/C division members Scott Mollan and Joey Orofino worked like a team to complete this project in a timely manner, and keep the customer happy.
