The University of Chicago was looking for a new roof on the Erman Biology Center building. They wanted everything new and updated while retaining its historical look. The job called for a classic red interlocking tile with architectural copper metal in various thicknesses. Field fabrication was needed to accommodate the oversized gutter, along with shop fabrication of all the ornamental pieces, i.e. the ridge, cornice, louvers, standing-seam panels, and finials. The job also took careful preparation to assure safety of the pedestrians, students, and property inside and out. For more information or to request a custom quote, please contact us today.
