BCBS provides full services relating to roofing and waterproofing renewals both as stand-alone services and as part of any other renovation or renewal activities. The first step is to assess what the existing conditions are in order that the replacement timing and needs can be determined. Does the roofing or waterproofing need to be replaced now or can its replacement be safely deferred or staged to better suit funding priorities and abilities?
Once a scope of renewal is determined, we then approach these services as we do with all of our projects – identifying key value-based strategies that make sense and are consistent with the vision of the Client and of the particular building in question. We pride ourselves on the overall aesthetics of roofs and how they should be integrated architecturally with the existing building. Do you really need that large flashing that does not suit the existing Architecture or can we develop more appropriate solutions that better integrate the new assemblies with the existing assemblies? Our experience allows us to work with our clients to better develop realistic concepts that meet their budget needs.
Once a suitable strategy is determined we will provide all required services as outlined for Existing Building Services:
- Prepare drawings and specifications;
- Tendering services;
- Project planning such as general meetings, information notices, and related;
- Full construction review and administration services during the project execution stages; and
- All required post-construction activities such as deficiency reviews, warranty reviews, and maintenance programs.
For examples of buildings we have contributed these services to, see Roofing & Waterproofing.
