Lax Kw’alaams Fish Plant Roof
Lax Kw’alaams is a remote First Nations village accessed only by water in British Columbia’s Pacific Northwest. Located approximately 45 minutes via sea taxi out of Prince Rupert, BC. The village has a state of the art fish processing plant that was built in the 60’s. The building is a pre-engineered steel superstructure with a standing seam metal roof. Due to the age of the building, the roof was leaking in many location and parts of the superstructure had to be removed and replaced due to corrosion. Removing the entire roof and replacing was not an option due to cost and inconvenience/shut down of the fish plant. Adding an additional roof over existing was not an option either due to the extra weight on the superstructure. IDL proposed a two part epoxy coating process over the entire 52,000ft2 roof. Work included, completing all structural repairs, power washing and removing all existing tar repairs from the entire roof. Reseal all existing penetrations with proper “boots”, repair and coat all standing seams and apply a two coat epoxy over the entire roof. Applied product comes with a 20 year warranty.
