Initial work on the roof consisted of scraping the gravel from the surface where new steel beams were to be placed provided a smooth attachment point. The beams were anchored to the existing steel structures through the existing roofing membrane and steel decking. Maintaining the water-tightness of the building was a challenging task because the flat roof held water after a rain. All removed equipment and curbs had to be sealed as well. 

New insulation was installed under the metal panels.  A vented ridge was also installed to allow for proper ventilation.
