The Lambert-St. Louis airport needed significant repair from years of wear and tear on the famous copper domes, and one disastrous F4 tornado. This $6.7 million project provided the airport with a much needed upgrade that included a high-tech, cool roofing design that enabled energy savings and extended the life of the product. The installation of the copper roof, insulation and sheathing were the largest part of the job along with a limited amount of concrete, carpentry, electrical and plumbing work.
Because this assignment took place on a secured area of the airport, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) needed continuous access to our plan of action which was updated hourly to ensure uninterrupted operations, a secure airport and spotless runways. All of this was done while coordinating operations around an airport terminal that received 12.4 million visitors annually.
