McNeese State University – Lake Charles, LA

McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana, experienced severe roof damage from a hurricane in late 2021 requiring a complete tear-off and roof replacement above the Health and Human Performance Center. The roofing project designed by Verges Rome Architects had to be completed within a tight timeline to meet the university’s Performance Center’s reopening before students returned to campus. The State of Louisiana Facility Planning and Control selected SOPREMA’s local authorized roofing contractor, Roofing Solutions, to install a SOPRAFIX® assembly, which provided a labor savings solution to meet the firm deadline, as well as meet all high wind uplift capabilities to ensure the university would be secured from future hurricanes and high wind events. This 60,000-square-foot project was completed for the university in 71 days, providing the university and its students with no disruptions as they returned to a dry and safe building for years to come!

Once completed, the university and design community saw the benefits of the SOPRAFIX® assembly and used SOPREMA’s SOPRAFIX® assemblies on 18 other university-wide reroofing projects!
