Since 1964, CHOC Children’s Hospital has been committed to providing the highest quality medical care to children. CHOC is affiliated with UC Irvine and has been named one of the best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.
When leaking water was detected in multiple areas of the 3,760 square foot roof that covered their pediatric mental health unit, including around drains and water between roof layers, CHOC was committed to investing in the highest quality, long-term protection for their building.
After multiple attempts to repair the leaks, it became obvious that they were going to need a new roof. Best Contracting Services was selected to remove the roof down to the concrete deck and replace it with Tremco Roofing’s fully reinforced AlphaGuard BIO Fluid Applied System, a protection mat and drain boards. The durability and low odor of the AlphaGuard BIO system is perfectly suited for sensitive hospital environments. After the installation of the system a rubber play area was installed for patients and their families to enjoy the southern California climate.
Devin Hugie, Executive Director of Support Services at CHOC Children’s Hospital said “CHOC Children’s Hospital needed a “patient play area” that would both meet our needs and comply with CHOC’s standards of family centered care to serve our pediatric mental health unit—which seemed daunting, to say the least. Tremco Roofing sales representative Steve Tolsma alleviated all our concerns and communicated with us every step of the way. We’ve received dozens of compliments from our patients and families, and the pure joy that it offers to our patients is priceless!”
The job was completed in 2018 and CHOC Children’s Hospital received a 20-year QA Plus warranty.
