While fall protection is always a serious concern in the construction industry, working becomes ever more frightful at 58 stories high.  If you are a Professional Commercial Roofer, it’s just another day – even when the design calls for a roofline with an open edge! The roofing system for The Independent includes a fully-tapered roof inside a screened-in area that is surrounded by a narrow roof deck with no walls.

Industrial Copper Roof Comes To Life On Emily Morgan Hotel

Industrial Copper Roof Comes To Life On Emily Morgan Hotel

Historic Emily Morgan hotel sees major update

When it was time to replace the copper roof atop the historic, 13-story Emily Morgan Hotel — something that hadn’t been done in the building’s 91-year history — the project leader knew he needed a team of workers with a special set of skills.

Why? Because the top of the downtown hotel is done in the slanted Art Deco revival style that was all the rage in the 1920s. And when we say slanted we mean slanted.  As in, a 67-degree-angle, which is almost two-thirds of the way to vertical, a 90-degree angle. We’re talking scary-steep metal, all nice and hot under the broiling Texas summer sun, and almost 160 feet up from the ground.  The building, which stands at East Houston Street and Avenue E next to Alamo Plaza, was originally a medical arts building and completed in April 1926 at a cost of $1.55 million.

Project Highlight: Answered Prayers

KNLE, The Candle 88.1 FM is the only radio station in the Austin area that solely plays music from independent Christian artists and has been serving the community for over 25 years.  In addition to the radio station, Sherland Priest, the KNLE owner and General Manager, serves his faith and his community in a variety of other ways including prayerful advocacy for the needs of friends, family and his music ministry.   It was after one of 2016’s area rain storms that Sherland happened to share with a close friend, Mitch Elengold, that the roof on the KNLE facility leaked badly every time it rained.

As Blessings go, this casual comment moved Mitch to take action. Mitch contacted Texas Fifth Wall Roofing Systems, Inc. to see if there was an interest in helping. Indeed, Texas Fifth Wall’s vision is to find ways to help our community whenever possible. Although a bigger project than we are typically able to undertake for charity, Fifth Wall agreed to provide labor and materials to replace the roof on KNLE’s facility.

Once again, this casual comment motivated Mitch to take action:  He made a few phone calls, sent a few emails, and paid a visit to a few friends.  Soon, cash donations to support the effort rolled in from friends, family and associates.

 

Contributors that made it possible to replace the roof on KNLE’s facility include:

Scott Perry, Chief Estimator with Texas Fifth Wall served an integral role in achieving the goal set by architect Randy Fromberg of Fromberg Associates LTD to bring the asthetic value desired when completing the Lago Vista ISD project.

“The one thing we were concerned about was the performing-arts center,” said Scott Perry, chief estimator at Texas Fifth Wall. “The front of the building is radiused, and we were concerned that the panels would not follow the radius without creasing or deforming, which would not deliver the desired design aesthetic. The engineers at Fabral confirmed that the panel had enough flexibility to follow the curve. They said it would work and it did.”
