Concrete Roofing Projects

Avalon at Hayes Valley

Client:   Avalon Bay Communities GC / Pyatok Architects
Location:  325 Octavia Street & 400 Laguna Street,  San Francisco, CA

 Square Footage: 37,130
Scope:  This project was a new ground-up construction of 2 – 5 Story Apartment buildings.  The building utilized wood frame construction over a podium slab.  The roof decks had solar panel attachments that posed design difficulties for cricketing with tapered poly-iso roof insulation.  Cell-Crete Corporation was able to design a sloped Lightweight Insulating Concrete system that provided positive sloping around the multiple mechanical units.
The system provided a top-down fire resistant barrier in the case of combustion of any of the components on the roof.  After installation of
the LWIC system, a layer of leak detection material and a single plyroof membrane was adhered to the top of the LWIC system and a pedestal paver system was installed for use as a walking surface.   A recreation patio featuring an outdoor bar, lounge chairs, bbq grills, televisions and natural gas line fed patio heaters was installed for the residents of the buildings on the roof.   By utilizing Cell-Crete Corporation to assist in the design, layout and installation of the LWIC roof system, Avalon Bay communities saved time on their schedule and money in their budget.

This was followed by slope to drain Elastizell Lightweight Concrete and stepped EPS for required positive slope drainage. Then a layer Leak detection material was attached to the Elastizell followed by a 1Ž4” cement cover board. This was the requirement for the Hot Rubber waterproofing needed next. All this was then covered with Pedestal Pavers for Roof Plaza. This Lightweight Insulating Roof Deck project utilized multiple divisons of Cell-Crete and was completed on time as scheduled.
