Forensic Investigation / Roofing / Architectural Design
Ridge Vineyards Inc., Lytton Springs Winery retained our firm to diagnose the conditions that led to severe water damage and decay of a fermentation building roof and to design the roof repairs. Our diagnostic services included a review of project documents and evaluation of the original design concept, a review of maintenance and repair records, and a physical inspection of the roof system, including moisture testing. After extensive analysis, our architects prepared a schematic design and construction documents for the roof replacement. The new roof was constructed entirely of moisture-resistant metal and urethane foam insulation.
The project also included a number of interior and exterior accessibility improvements to the building and site, including: accessible parking, exterior path of travel to primary entrance, accessible doors, showers, egress paths, interior stairs, men’s bathroom, and water closets.
