Overview
 
It's not often that the FBI requires background checks on a roofing project. State of the art security and government clearance for every worker isn't a usual requirement. But when you are roofing a nuclear power plant the rules change. This was not only a high security job; it was a major push job. This 200,000 SQFT of roofing job was completed on twelve different roofing levels in 45 working days.

 

Roofing
 
A Durolast single-ply system was installed for most of the 200,000 SQFT facility. The 120-foot air-tight reactor building could not be drilled. To waterproof the reator building a Durolast vapor barrier was installed and ballasted with a Hanover interlocking paver system.

 

Waterproofing
 
All waterproofing work was completed as part of the roofing project.

 

Special Considerations
 
In addition to the tight time frame, work had to be completed within predetermined intervals when the reactor would be shut down. Additionally, security requirements forbid the use of fire or gas and no vehicles were allowed on the premises. In spite of all restrictions and time added by security precautions the entire project was completed in 45 working days.
