City College of New York, Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture
New York, NY
SUPERSTRUCTURES conducted a roof investigation and restoration project for the City College of New York’s Spitzer School of Architecture. Several small roof cuts at the existing roofing and flashing were made to investigate conditions and configurations for subsequent roof replacement. The project included removal and replacement of the amphitheater’s existing standing seam sheet metal rain screens, as well as replacement of selected flat roofs. An additional, temporary layer of foil-faced, SBS modified bitumen waterproofing was installed over the existing to address continuous water infiltration. Water-damaged sections of substrate board in the amphitheater were replaced. The amphitheater will be completely refurbished, including the seating area.
