Quality Corner

Fireproofing Testing: All of the steel that gets fire proofed requires testing to ensure the quality of fire proofing will perform as designed if need be. Inspection is conducted by a third party inspector that that test the thickness, density and adhesion per ASTME119 and E605. Any test results that don’t meet specification require re-application of fireproofing. So far all fireproofing tested on site has passed inspection.

    Will the walkways between Chester Fritz and Merrifield Hall be constructed in the near term? Long term?

    Mike,
    The flat roof is an EPDM rubber (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer). The sloped roof will be Architectural Asphalt Shingles. These sloped roofs have gutters to capture snow and ice in many locations. In addition there are snow guards at/around entryways at the sloped roofs to avoid the dangers you identified below. Thanks for your question!
