One Shell Square, New Orleans, Louisiana

ROOFTECH performed emergency evaluation services, design, and inspections on these roofs. They sustained significant damage in August 2005 from Hurricane Katrina. Being the tallest building in Louisiana at just less than 700 feet and its location on the coast in a hurricane prone region subjects the roof to significant wind uplift pressures. The roof design had to sustain the wind uplift pressures while maintaining a “zero” edge metal profile at the perimeter of the roofs.
