Project Size: 50,000 square feet and 530 linear feet in total
Project Scope: Open since 1971, Walt Disney World Resort is the most visited vacation resort in the world with an attendance of more than 52 million people annually. The property covers 27,258 acres, housing four theme parks, two water parks, several golf courses, a camping resort and other entertainment venues. RSS Florida division was tasked with re-roofing three high-profile buildings in the Orlando-based entertainment complex.
RSS crews re-roofed the 10,000 sq. ft. Canada Pavilion in Epcot. This re-roofing job consisted of updating the existing roof with a multi-faceted roof system by installing the highest quality simulated wood shake shingles, a modified flat roof system and an elastomeric coating system to comprise an advanced waterproofing system.
Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland Terrace 25,000 sq. ft. new roof was installed with a high-quality roof membrane and a liquid applied roof system designed specifically to endure the harsh Florida weather conditions all year round. The biggest challenge we overcame was logistical, as the building is located in the middle of the park, and the customer required no disruption to guests.
The RSS team had to work overnight shifts due to the park’s schedule and high-traffic areas to complete these two high-profile roofing jobs.
RSS refreshed the Health Services building, also located inside Epcot, with multiple coats of an Acrylic/Urethane Resin coating on the 15,000 sq. ft. roof, 350 lin. ft. of gutters and 180 lin. ft. of downspouts.
All three of these projects carried a strict timeline as RSS crews had to work around park hours in order to get the projects completed on time.
