City Heights 2006
Project Name: City Heights at Pellier Park
Location: San Jose, CA
Project Type: New Construction High Rise Luxury Residential Tower
Year Completed: 2006
Size: 12,510 sq. ft.
Challenge: Install high performance roof system over (4) $2 million penthouse units located on top two floors of this high rise building. Cost of pumping 400 cubic yards of concrete to the 14th floor to create slope to drain was prohibitive.
Solution: SPF materials were metered and preheated in foam rig trailer located on ground and then pumped through heated hoses to the 14th floor roof deck. Tapered lifts of SPF were installed over properly prepared and primed concrete deck to create slope to drain at ¼ inch per foot. The weight and expense of pumping 400 cubic yards of concrete up to the 14th floor was eliminated. SPF provided slope to drain, R30 insulation and a waterproof membrane.
