Commercial Roofing Tallahassee | Roof Repair | Burnette Construction

DESCRIPTION OF CONTRACT

When Burnette Construction joined the project team for the roof replacement at the UNICOR warehouse in Tallahassee, Florida, the specifications called for a 4-ply Built-Up Roofing system. With former roofing experience inside various institutions, Burnette Construction quickly suggested to the design team that a 2-ply Modified Bitumen Roofing system with a white granulated Cap Sheet was a better roofing solution for several reasons. First and foremost was safety. Bringing a hot tar kettle into the prison environment brings with it many safety concerns for both the inmates, prison staff, and the roofing team.

Not only was the 2-ply Modified Bitumen system a safer alternative because it could be torch applied, but the use of the white granulated Cap Sheet made it a better choice for the environment. The cool roof concept was embraced by the design team and Burnette Construction was able to complete the project on schedule. While Burnette Construction also finished within budget, we provided a complete roofing system that was more energy efficient than the proposed, thus providing UNICOR with cost savings for the entire life of the roof.

DESCRIPTION OF CONTRACT

When a tornado hit the Federal Correction Institution in Marianna Florida, Burnette Construction was one of the first contractors called to respond. Within twelve hours of the Southeast Regional Facilities Manager’s phone call, Burnette Construction had a team of thirty skilled roofers on-site. While the tornado did damage throughout the institution, the focus was on the power house which suffered major roof damage. The Burnette Construction team worked swiftly to deliver an operation power house the very next day.

Due to the urgency of the situation, the Federal Bureau of Prisons gave Burnette Construction a 90 day window to complete the 150,000 SF project. Working with the institution and its needs, Burnette Construction designed a 80mil Sarnafil PVC single-ply membrane roofing system to meet the budget and time constraints of this project. This provided the institution with a cost affordable white roofing system whose ENERGY STAR rating could provide benefits and cost savings for years to come.

The Burnette Construction team devoted full attention in response to the institutions needs and completed the project within the 90 day performance period, allowing the scheduled return of inmates to the institution to occur on schedule without delay.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS in RAIFORD

DESCRIPTION OF CONTRACT

This roof replacement project was performed at the Union Correction Facility in Raiford, Florida. This institution houses death row inmates and therefore has extremely high security measures and practices in place. The scope of work to be completed included working with inmate labor to replace the roof on the 60,000 SF death row inmate housing unit.

The existing asphalt shingles were failing and the institution needed a solution that would have greater wind resistance along with a longer life span. Burnette Construction worked with the design team to select .032 Aluminum standing seam panels for the project. This was the ideal application, as metal roofing systems are designed in an interlocking fashion that greatly increased their strength and wind resistance. Additionally, unlike the asphalt shingles that were removed, these aluminum roofing panels will be able to be recycled when there lifespan ends, making them a green solution as well.

The Burnette Construction team worked with the institution and developed a plan for inmate participation and learning. Burnette Construction managed the entire roof replacement project, allowing inmates to remove the asphalt shingles down to the wood deck, then trained them to install the self-adhered underlayment, preparing the roof for the metal panel system. The coordination and management necessary was extensive, but worth the effort. We found that working side by side with the inmates was a learning opportunity for all parties involved and the gratification from completing the project on time, within budget, with the inmates, proved very rewarding.

FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION in JESUP

PROJECT LOCATION: Jesup, Georgia
YEAR: 2005

POINT OF CONTACT: Phil Knight (678-686-1235)
CONTRACT VALUE: $2,620,625
PROJECT SQUARE FOOTAGE: 240,000 SF

DESCRIPTION OF CONTRACT

When the Federal Correctional Institution in Jesup, Georgia needed a new roof, the team at Burnette Construction was consulted for a roof evaluation. The existing roof consisted of a lightweight concrete system over a metal deck with a self-adhered roofing membrane on top. With a preset budget to work with, Burnette Construction did a moisture survey of the entire roof and suggested that a roof re-cover be performed instead of a replacement. Since the areas of failure could be pinpointed and repaired, a re-cover was then possible, providing the institution with the benefits of a brand new roofing system, without the escalated costs of replacement. Additionally, since roof re-covers have environmental benefits including low amounts of construction waste, it makes it a green solution when possible.

Several security features created some challenges for the roofing team. The main entrance building had perimeter fence security running along the roofline of the building, which had to be removed to complete the roof. With armed guards required during this time, Burnette Construction was under pressure to complete this building’s roof quickly, as the cost to the institution for these guards was well understood. The team developed a way to complete areas of the roof, section by section, so the armed guards were only required for a 2-day time period. This, in combination with an on-time roof delivery and value engineering that provided the institution with even more for less, made this project a success.

FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION in MIAMI

PROJECT LOCATION: Miami, Florida
YEAR: 2005
OWNER: Federal Bureau of Prisons
POINT OF CONTACT: Phil Knight (678-686-1235)
CONTRACT VALUE: $2,750,000
PROJECT SQUARE FOOTAGE: 222,000 SF
Commercial Roofing Tallahassee | Roof Repair | Burnette Construction

DESCRIPTION OF CONTRACT

When Hurricane Wilma hit the southern coast of Florida in 2005, the Federal Correctional Institution in Miami incurred extensive roof damage to its facility. Roof leaks throughout the institution required prompt attention, and Burnette Construction was able to mobilize quickly to develop on the spot roofing solutions and design a better long term roofing system.

Temporary repairs started immediately. All existing steep slope roofs were asphalt shingles that could not withstand the winds of the storm and were therefore failing throughout the facility. With the prison occupied, it was critical for Burnette Construction to locate and repair roof leaks quickly, so building interiors were saved and costly inmate relocation was not necessary. Initially, the Burnette Construction team had to work continuously night and day to get the roof leaks under control.

With the new roof design it was imperative that the roofing system hold up against future storms. For this reason, a metal roofing system for the sloped roofs was selected and a PVC single-ply system was used on the flat roofs. In addition to being ENERGY STAR products, both stand up well to high winds.

When a second storm came through the region, construction was further complicated and the scope of work was expanded. Burnette Construction continued to work a day shift and a night shift to stay on schedule and deal with the additional damage.
