INVESTING IN ROOFING SOLUTIONS FOR NEARLY 100 YEARS

The Cathedral of St. Paul

BIRMINGHAM, AL

2016 NRCA Gold Circle Award Winner

Outstanding Workmanship: Steep Slope

The Cathedral of St. Paul is the centerpiece of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham, Alabama.  When the Archdiocese initiated plans to renovate St. Paul, they had one clear requirement for the new roof system: that it would be a historically accurate reproduction of the original being replaced, in materials, design, and craftsmanship.  They knew this would be no easy task, given the intricate, multi-colored slate patterns in the 122 year old main roof and steeples, ornate copper cornices, and dozens of unique copper architectural features commissioned specifically for St. Paul’s over a century ago.

At Midland, we’ve built a nationwide reputation in slate and tile restoration by consistently exceeding customer expectations.  According to the Rector at the Cathedral of St. Paul, we’ve done just that in Birmingham.  In his words: “We could not have been more pleased with the work accomplished by the team from Midland Engineering…It is a marvel to us to be able to see the Church in its original glory, and all of this thanks to Midland!”

The University of Notre Dame - Remick Family Hall

NOTRE DAME, IN

2023 NRCA Gold Circle Award Winner

Outstanding Workmanship: Steep Slope

When the University of Notre Dame began planning for the construction of a new classroom building in the middle of campus, their objectives were clear. They knew their new structure must blend in with the oldest buildings on campus, following the gothic architectural style established by the university’s
French founders nearly 200 years ago. Utilizing classic materials and the newest technologies, they were determined to deliver a building that would last for generations. And finally, they would strive to build a structure which would set the standard for future new construction on campus.

Located just steps from the Main Administration Building known for its world-famous Golden Dome, Remick Family Hall successfully integrates multiple roof systems while incorporating the best of Gothic design and modern construction techniques. These include a slate mansard with 34 dormers topped by a  copper standing-seam roof, a paver patio deck over a low-slope membrane, and a one-of-a-kind custom cupola fabricated of copper containing over 700 flat-seamed zinc panels affixed to a cold-formed metal frame. Adding to the complexity and uniqueness of the project, all metal components including dormers, cornices, gutters, collector boxes, and the cupola, were all prefabricated in Midland’s sheet metal shop.   

 

 

The Campus Crossroads Project

SOUTH BEND, IN

Eighty-seven years after Knute Rockne last paced the sidelines of a brand new Notre Dame Stadium, the University of Notre Dame unveiled the Campus Crossroads Project, the largest and most ambitious building project in the university’s history. Consisting of three buildings connected to the east, west, and south facades of the iconic House that Rockne Built, the three-year project added 800,000 square feet of classroom, research, student, meeting, event, hospitality and other multipurpose space to the campus at an initial cost of nearly $500 million dollars.

When the university put the roofing contract out for bid, they knew that they needed a roofing contractor capable of providing outstanding workmanship for not just one roof type, but for low-slope, standing seam, plaza decks, and Green roofing systems. With the knowledge of Midland’s industry leadership in green roofing systems and nearly one hundred year’s experience with Midland craftsmanship as a contractor on campus, they felt secure in accepting our bid for this new centerpiece of the campus.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse

INDIANAPOLIS, IN

Sarnafil® PVC Membrane Roofing System

Bankers Life Fieldhouse which serves as the home to the NBA Indiana Pacers and WNBA Indiana Fever entrusted Midland Engineering Company to completely replace the failing roof this past year. The project which took more than 25,000 man hours to complete utilized more than 50 roofers and sheet metal workers organized in as many as 4 crews. The sheer size (150,000 sqft), slopes and downtown location of the project created some unique challenges that had to be overcome. Staging for this project was extremely difficult due to the constraints of space and the volume of people who visit the facility on a daily basis.

All of our equipment and scaffolding had to be secured from the general public. The roof had multiple slopes of 3/12, 5/12 and 9/12. To move materials and manpower we designed a scaffold system in partnership with our scaffolding subcontractor that utilized Beta Hoists and Bokker Hoists. We also used a crane to supplement the main system. Safety was of paramount importance and all workers were tied off when on the roof. Midland is extremely proud to have not had a single injury during the project. Central Indiana weather can also be unpredictable and we had to deal with rain, frost and wind.
