A few poultry roofing examples
We completed a large-scale roof replacement project at the Pilgrim’s Pride prepared foods complex in Elberton, Georgia. The project involved tear-off and replacement of 21,000 square feet of roofing, including removing and replacing 7,000 square feet of rusted decking, designing a fully tapered roofing system for proper drainage, and replacing all pipe supports for the building’s ammonia lines. Throughout the 35-day project, the 24-hour facility continued to operate at full capacity with zero interruption.
At the Wayne Farms fresh processing facility in Pendergrass, Georgia, C.L. Burks completed extensive service repair work on the facility’s modified bitumen roof. Unique challenges of this project included the need to minimize the number of times contractors entered and left the property. We were able to bring in large amounts of roofing product with our box trucks—reducing traffic and increasing efficiency. Throughout the project, we vigilantly avoided disrupting the facility’s dark room and clean room, and operations at the plant continued with zero interruption.
