PROJECT POINTS OF INTEREST
Rarely is a single contractor hired to construct the entire building envelope (the whole outside of a structure). Central Roofing Company was awarded the entire LPM Apartments project by McHugh Construction because of our competitive comprehensive bid and reputation for excellence in all commerical service areas. LPM Apartment Tower is the highest building in the Loring Park neighborhood and features a white “cool” roof and vegetated “green” roof space – features that greatly decrease the environmental impact of the building as well as cooling and heating costs to the property owners and occupants.
The “green” roof was the last piece of this project to be installed and by the time it was to be completed, the construction elevator had been removed and the building interior completed. To protect the plants and avoid disrupting the residents, CRC crews and vegetation supplier, Bachman’s Floral, worked together to load carts and bring them up the service elevators to the rooftop. Even Dale Bachman, CEO of Bachman’s, was on-site assisting the process. Partnership and creative problem solving – just another day at Central Roofing Company.
