Walter Reed Community Center – Arlington, Virginia
From the beginning, the architect designing the Walter Reed Community Center was asked to include a vegetated roof within the blueprints. The goal was a LEED certified Silver level building. It was at this point that Magco, Inc., a Tecta America Company, was asked to install the roof. Magco is a roofing contractor with ample experience installing vegetated roofs. They knew the most important part of the project was making sure the roofing system underneath would protect the building from water while bearing the weight of the drainage mats, soil and plants (22 pounds per square foot).
“There’s just one integrated manufacturers’ 20-year warranty that covers both the roof and the planting system,” said Mark Gaulin, owner of Magco, Inc. “The people at Walter Reed know that if there is ever a problem with either, there won’t be a bunch of finger pointing between the roofing material manufacturer and the installer. We both work as one.”
