Texas A&M University MSC

College Station, TX

Memorial Student Center

Type of job: Spray Applied Polyurethane Foam Roofing System

Project Size: 175,000 sq. ft.

Challenges: Several expansion projects over the last 60-years created quite a challenge of tying all the different sections, levels and different types of construction together and maintaining a watertight, energy efficient facility, for all that were involved. A timeline to get this project in a watertight condition was critical to the project to maintain an on-time completion schedule.

Project Description: The project was a complete renovation and expansion project which would require all of the different applications and roofing methods of spray applied polyurethane foam, on one roofing project. There were sections of the roof that also required total retrofit of the existing foam system and then there were sections that only required a repair and recoat of the existing foam roof system. Skylights and restaurants were added to the student center which required refrigeration and HVAN systems to be installed. Having a spray polyurethane foam roof made the installation of these systems simple. Combining the old and new was easy to do because of the seamless application of spay foam.

Products Used: BASF Elastospray 81305 3 lb. foam & Elastocoat S-5000 Silicone Coating

Benefits of Using Foam: Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) was chosen for this project because it combines high R-value closed-cell insulation with superior air leakage control performance to deliver maximum efficiency that was requirement for this facility. As water tightness and insulation value were the main project focal points of the expansion project, SPF was the clear choice.

How we surpassed our client's expectations

Hear it straight from the client

“I have been employed by Facilities Services of Texas A&M University for over
thirty years. We currently have approximately seven million square feet of polyurethane
foam roof systems on our facilities. At this time, no other roofing system can offer
the leak-free service, ease of leak detection and maintenance, the energy efficiency,
durability or renewability provided by sprayed polyurethane foam roofs.

During my time at Texas A&M University I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Scoggins and F.W. Walton, Inc. on many roof projects which include everything from new construction to total retrofit. They performed the initial work with professionalism and excellence followed by immediate response if there were any problems or concerns. I have total trust and respect for both Mr. Scoggins and F.W. Walton, Inc. and offer them my thanks and highest recommendation.”
