Simon Spotlight: Durham, N.C. Data Center

Across much of the 48,000 sq. ft. roof of a large data center in Durham, N.C. were heavy concrete pavers, which were initially installed to protect the roof from falling ice off of a nearby tower. Over the years, these pavers began creating problems. Building movement was causing stress at the flashing points, and repair costs were adding up. That’s when Simon Roofing was contacted.

“A critical aspect of this project was the risk associated with any roof leaks because of what was inside the building,” said Dominic Scarnecchia, regional sales manager for Simon Roofing. “There were also various items and unique situations surrounding the building that needed to be accounted for.”
