Roof Recovery Design Case Study: QVC
Find Out How We Helped the QVC Suffolk Distribution Center Design And Execute A New Roof
Towards the end of 2021, the QVC Suffolk Distribution Center Suffolk Distribution Center sent a section of their roof out to bid with the assistance of RCS. RCS assisted QVC with the evaluation of the roof assembly in order to then create a roof replacement design for the 259,800 square foot section of the roof. Upon review of the existing roof assembly and the goals of QVC for this roof section, RCS was able to provide a more cost-efficient alternative to the full roof replacement design by presenting a recovery roof system in its stead.
After presenting the new roof recovery design specifications and drawings to QVC, RCS gathered contractors and assisted QVC in sending the project out to bid. Upon review of the bids and the contractor information, RCS presented their professional opinions, and a contractor was chosen to complete the project. RCS reviewed the submittals and approved / denied them in accordance with the construction documents and manufacturer specified requirements.
RCS attended and ran both the pre-bid and the pre-construction meetings to ensure the client, QVC, were properly represented and all bases are covered prior to the beginning of work. While the project commenced, RCS was on-site playing a pivotal role of Full Time Quality Control with daily roof inspection reports, with inspections, and upon completion of the project, a final inspection.
Throughout the project RCS maintained contact with the client / Owner, QVC, to ensure the project was going smoothly and on the correct timetable. By the end of 2022 the project was completed and a final inspection performed.
RCS was fully invested from the beginning of this project to ensure the end result will not only match the existing roof areas in style, but also provide the most affordable, reliable and efficient roof assembly that will last for 20 plus years to come.
