A view from inside the Newly Re-roofed McClain Center Practice Facility as the Wisconsin Badgers football team gets prepared for their upcoming game and has them off to a terrific start to the 2013 season!

 

The previous Double Lock Terne Steel roof deteriorated in less than 23 years and began leaking so badly that the facility became unusable for any function.  Ian Griffiths of the design team at Berners-Schober Associates approached Merchant & Evans’ Sales Representative John Anzivino President of Saturn Wisconsin to discuss options for re-roofing this facility. The consensus was to use Merchant & Evans’ ZIP-RIB® in .040 Stucco Embossed Mill Finish Aluminum.  John Anzivino contacted Dave Weiss of Nations Roofing (a member of the 14 company group—Nations Roof LLC – headquartered in Georgia) who is a long standing Authorized ZIP-RIB® Installer to develop the budgets and work out the detailing of this unique building design along with discussing the logistics involved with handling the over 200’ long panels.  The over 45,000SF of Aluminum provided the extended life cycle the design team of Berners-Schober Associates and owner were looking to achieve as well as having a positive “Green” impact.   The ZIP-RIB® metal roof system was used in conjunction with a fabric material center roof section to accomplish the look and functionality the design team specified.
