Cold Storage Warehouse – Kent, WA
Roof Reconstruction and Retrofit
A fire occurred at this building that was contained before damaging the wood roof structure. However, during demolition of the ceiling finishes, the contractor found heavy decay was prevalent in the roof I-joists around nearly the entire perimeter of the roof. We determined that improper ventilation of the roof had caused the extensive damage. We provided structural engineering services for the repair of the damage roof structure as well as reconstruction of the insolated interior freezer room. We also designed ventilation and fire-resistivity of the roof system to meet the requirements mandated by the City of Kent.
