Martin Roofing - Roofing Contractor

Ward Federal Building

Life in the United States will never be the same after the attacks of September 11th. There are heightened security measures at every venue considered to potentially be at risk. In order for Martin Roofing to provide services for the Ward Federal Building project, all employees involved had to go through extensive background checks through Homeland Security to gain access to the 140-foot tall facility.

Ensuring the safety of citizens and employees around the project, shortening street closing traffic delays and maximizing minimal staging space was essential to the success of the project.
PROJECT NUMBER: 090648 Ward Federal Building, Winston-Salem, NC
SQUARE FEET:
30,000

ROOFING SOLUTION:

four-ply pitch roof
ROOFING PRODUCT MANUFACTURER:
Koppers Roofing

WARRANTY:
20 yr

INSTALLATION CHALLENGES:
Once all background checks were complete, and our employees were cleared to access the Ward Federal Building, we faced other challenges with working in a busy downtown location. Surrounded by streets, sidewalks, pedestrians and employees who worked in and around the building, we had to work closely with Winston-Salem city officials to coordinate all stages of the project.

To lessen street closing inconveniences, we operated during non-commute times in the morning and evenings. With virtually no room for our staging area, project logistics had to be organized so every square foot available was utilized. Equipment and supplies were scheduled for arrival and usage in a just-in-time logistics model. Safety monitors were used on the ground, as well as the roof, to ensure the safety of everyone in and around the Ward Federal Building.
