Healthcare encompasses anything from hospitals to assisted living communities, from medical office buildings (MOB) to research campuses. With the baby boomers moving towards retirement, the phrase “silver tsunami” has been used to describe the increase in various medical service locations and communities.  JM has roofing solutions for minimizing disruptions such as noise, odor, and operations for occupied spaces.

Case Study

The Preserve At Palm-Aire is a landmark senior-living community in Pompano Beach situated on 13 acres of lush, beautiful grounds in South Florida. Offering both Independent Living and Assisted Living programs, the health care facility’s primary focus is on preserving residents’ quality of life in every way possible. The independent senior lifestyle at The Preserve At Palm-Aire is all about maintenance-free living, and that philosophy influenced the choice of a new roofing system for the facility.

The reroofing of The Preserve At Palm-Aire was complicated by Mansard-style roofs and 5' to 6' high parapet walls that greatly restricted access to the existing roofing system and lightweight structural concrete deck. The use of trash chutes was impossible, so a large crane and dumpster were used to remove the roofing debris. “What concerned us most was using such a large crane around an immaculately landscaped property fully occupied by tenants especially sensitive to excess noise and vibration,” says Geo Madruga, commercial project coordinator for A-1 Property Services Inc. From an installation standpoint, the low-slope roof was nearly covered with penetrations, including 30 large HVAC units and various pipes and stack vents.
