Project Spotlight—Lebanon Correctional Institution

November 2017- Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal (KRSM) recently completed a re-roof project near Lebanon, OH. The Lebanon Correctional Institution was a multi-million dollar project that had to be completed in a tight timeline under very strict security.

The Lebanon Correctional Institution involved 73 individual roof areas and over 18,000 lineal feet (or 3.42 miles) of edge metal.

During this project, KRSM used a brand new roofing system from Johns Manville. The JM EPDM FIT tape-to-tape system was quick, effective and eliminated many steps of installation for the 346,000-square-foot project.

Strict security and only one available entrance made things very challenging for the crew. Project Managers Paul Novak and Stephen Coyle made sure this was an obstacle they could overcome. Early arrival made it easy for crew members to get their trucks unloaded and out of the way of other trucks and vehicles entering the facility. Crew members also made sure to count and track every tool and piece of equipment before and after the day was over to ensure optimum security compliance.

Altogether, there were three roofing foremen (Mike Frye, Kermit Tackett, and Dwayne Morgan), one sheet metal foreman (Brian Blacker), one superintendent (Herschel Morrison) and two Projects Managers (Paul Novak and Stephen Coyle) all working together to successfully complete this high-profile project.

Great job to everyone involved in another successful project. Keep up the great work!
