SC DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES: FORT JOHNSON
LOCATION: CHARLESTON, SC
REI Engineers was contracted by the Department of Natural Resources to evaluate and design a roof replacement for three structures at their Fort Johnson facility. The project involved replacing a 5V metal roof panel with shingles on a single-story residential style house, replacing a shingle roof with new shingles on a small single-story square structure, and replacing the multi-story historic plantation-style house’s painted terne metal roof with copper due to the unavailability of terne metal in the United States.
The design also included structural roof framing repairs and addressed the failing built-in gutter system on all three of the roof sections coated with silicone coating, which necessitated replacing the roofs. To justify the use of copper for the historic metal roof replacement, a justification was provided to the Office of the State Engineer and National Historic Registry.
In addition to the roof replacement, six deteriorated wood windows were removed for complete restoration and reinstallation. Construction administration services were also provided to ensure proper execution of the design. Overall, the project was carefully planned and executed, with close attention paid to preserving the historic character of the site while addressing the necessary repairs and replacements.
Copper metal roof was used inplace of the existing terne metal due to unavailability in the united states.
