Following the restoration of Ford Field’s 340,000-square-foot domed roof, the Detroit Lions organization has chosen Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance as its official roofing supplier.
“It’s a privilege to be named the official roofing supplier to the Detroit Lions, one of Michigan’s flagship organizations, and to be part of the Lions’ initiative to increase Ford Field’s energy efficiency and sustainability,” said Tremco Roofing Executive Vice President Thomas Cummings. “Sustainable facilities are more cost efficient and comfortable, and that will help make the great fan experience at Ford Field even better.”
The Ford Field roof renovation was a massive project that required very complex staging of both material and manpower. After performing comprehensive diagnostics of the roof and finding it was a viable restoration candidate, Tremco Roofing recommended restoring the roof instead of replacing it. Restoration is much more sustainable than replacement because the existing roof membrane is significantly upgraded, not torn off and sent to landfills. This long-term approach to extending the life of the roof, instead of replacing it, delivers maximum value with a significant reduction in cost.
“Tremco Roofing provided a solution that was the right fit for the roof renovation process at Ford Field,” said Detroit Lions Vice President of Operations Todd Argust. “Their cost effective and sustainability-focused approach enabled us to spend wisely on a solution that provides protection while minimizing material ending up in a landfill. We will continue to work with them on a maintenance program to ensure our roof will perform well and look great for years to come. The extension of our relationship with Tremco Roofing is a mutually beneficial partnership supporting the longevity of Ford Field.”
Despite the large scope, the entire project was completed on time and on budget. In keeping with Tremco Roofing’s commitment to safety, there were no safety issues or injuries throughout the three-month project, which concluded in time for the Detroit Lions’ preseason.
