When American Airlines houses pilots for overnight bunk stops at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport, their choice is the Wyndham Hotel at I-95 and Griffin Road in Dania Beach, Florida. Putting a new roof on that building required strict adherence to sleeping hours so the hotel could continue to accommodate its guests in first-class style.
Upscale hotels have upscale architecture and design issues. The Wyndham Hotel had tight specifications with a broad scope that included stucco and floor tiling on the top patio deck. Complicating features included multiple levels with high parapet walls and long spans. Working eight stories high, using their GCI crane, Advanced Roofing installed 69,000 square feet of modified bitumen, 19,000 square feet of gravel built-up, and 800 square feet of plaza deck using special mosaic tile.
Advanced Roofing Project Managers were Randy Cernuda and Mike Stevens with a fine performance turned in by Foreman Malcolm Davies. The Architect-Roof Consultant was Arnold and Associates of Addison, Texas, represented by Mr. Michael Cogburn. Arnold and Associates handle many national accounts like the Wyndham Hotel properties and Federated Department Stores.
In addition to traditional roofing disciplines, Advanced Roofing installed the lightning protection system and handled the mechanical specifications as well as the general contracting scope of the project. In the end, the roof system was completed with a zero punch list.
