Building 1 Roof Replacement, Veterans Affairs

Fort Wayne, Indiana

American Structurepoint provided investigative and design services, and is preparing to provide construction administration services for the replacement of the roof on Building 1 of the Fort Wayne campus of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Building 1 is a standalone 5-story building consisting of 34 distinct roof areas for a total surface area of 61,000 square feet. The facility houses inpatient, outpatient, and ancillary services.

We also specified fall protection systems in order bring the roof areas up to current OSHA requirements, and incorporated new emergency roof drainage via overflow drains and scuppers that previously did not exist.
