Sheffield Metals Completes Weathertight Warranty Project in Puerto Rico

The Antilles School at Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico, was recently completed and is undoubtedly a great example of a project that utilized all facets of Sheffield Metals’ offerings.

Nearly two years ago, JGR Eco-Logical Group was referred by Mark Strait (Sharkskin) to contact Joe LaCrue (Sheffield Metals – Western Division) regarding the project. If awarded the job, their intention was to purchase a roof panel machine, a brake and shear, plus all the material required for the standing seam metal roof system. The project also required a Weathertight Warranty for the roof, which Jim Mitchell (Sheffield Metals – Technical Director) provided the formal quote.

Eco-Logical was then provided a quote for a fully-loaded New Tech SSQ machine equipped with 2.0” Mechanical Seam and 1.0” Flush Wall tooling, as well as a Cidan brake and shear. Additionally, all coils, sheets and accessories were quoted for the project, which consisted of 70,000 square feet of roof area and 30,000 square feet of walls.

In Spring 2014, Joe, Mark and Jim travelled to Puerto Rico to review all technical aspects of the project and ensure that Eco-Logical would be capable of completing the project successfully. The Sheffield Metals team referred a certified installer who was able to provide further assistance by helping to train Eco-Logical’s installation crews.

Upon return from the initial trip, the process of ordering the machinery and materials began. The project was completed in August 2015. At that time, Jim Mitchell and Mike Blake returned to Puerto Rico so that Jim could complete the final inspection and issue the Weathertight Warranty.
