There’s more to your roofing project than meets the eye.
A roof is a roof is a roof, right? A wall is simply a barrier, true? Technically, your roof and building envelope is a system. Which is why HHSDR takes a top-to-bottom, 360° approach to ensure your roof is top notch.
High quality is high priority
We begin with a thorough inspection to ensure you’re getting the most effective roof and building envelope system for your structure and conditions.
Independent evaluation yields savings
Not affiliated with any roofing or wall and window system manufacturer, HHSDR works with multiple vendors, through evaluation and cross-bidding, to ensure you’re getting the right system for the right cost.
Avoid hidden costs
Without the expertise of seasoned designers and negotiators, roof installation costs can soar, 30 – 40% higher than necessary.
Stay on track
By managing your roofing project, the HHSDR team ensures your contract complies with your requirements, including bonds, insurances, permits, codes, prevailing wages and worker clearances, among others.
Located in Pittsburgh’s Sheraden neighborhood, Langley High School opened in 1923. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the roof replacement project included installation of an 80,770 square foot semi-reflective roof, along with a small section of standing seam metal roof and a 7,500 square foot section of asphalt shingle roof. For this project, the HHSDR team performed complete design, inspection and construction administration services.
Constructed in 1919 as Erie Academy High School, the Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy is an urban college-preparatory magnet school that boasts a 100% college admittance rate. The $10.8 million project consisted of masonry and cast stone restoration, selective cast stone replacement, selective structural enhancements and replacements, and roof replacement. Interior spaces and environmental systems were updated or replaced per the building code.
This Lawrence County School was in need of an update. Specifically, the rear of the school craved more natural light and energy-efficient windows. By matching the color and styling of the front-of-school replacement windows, the HHSDR team ensured the school was stylishly up-to-date.
The HHSDR team provided planning, design and construction contract administration services for the project, including replacement metal roof panels over the existing canopy and a new rooftop air handling unit. Because of the scope and complexity, the project was completed in two phases, over two years, which allowed the school district to leverage annual budgets.
