Chicago Vocational Career Academy Roof Replacement

Chicago, IL

This project consisted of the complete renovation of one of CPS’s largest schools, Chicago Vocational Career Academy or CVCA. Brook Architecture scope of work includes the complete design of a 200,000+ SF new low-slope roofing system. Due to the large number of trades, a phased built-up system was designed where the temporary 2 ply roofing system was used as the thermal barrier for the permanent 4 ply system built on top of it. Due to the historical significance of the building Brook Architecture had to carefully coordinate parapet rebuilding with new flashing details, maintaining the buildings original character. Brook Architecture was hired for Professional Services for Schematic Design through Post Construction/Warranty Phase.
