Roof: 5 Story Research Facility

Challenge: Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University was constructing a new neuroscience facility. They wanted to ensure that problems plaguing previous construction projects would not affect this critical facility.

Solution: Emory-Yerkes opted to incorporate commissioning procedures. RoofChek was retained by the Architect in charge of building envelope commissioning, KPS Group of Atlanta. RoofChek worked with KPS to review plans and details, inspect for potential problems and weak areas, develop testing procedures, and ultimately test areas of the building envelope to ensure the systems functioned as intended. As a result several critical problem areas were located and corrected prior to the building being put into service.
