Construction of the Uline Distribution Center in Pleasant Prairie, Wis., was completed during the summer of 2009. M.M. Schranz Roofing Inc., Milwaukee, performed the roofing work for the project.

"We were asked to furnish and install an EPDM roof system and architectural sheet-metal flashing trim on the new 1.72 million-square-foot distribution center," says Chris Busalacchi, vice president of M.M. Schranz Roofing.

M.M. Schranz Roofing installed one layer of Firestone Building Products ISO 95+ 1 1/2-inch-thick polyisocyanurate board insulation loose-laid over a structural metal roof deck; a 2 1/2-inch-thick layer of AHC Foam Technologies Type II Foam-Control® EPS insulation; and Firestone Building Products RubberGard™ EPDM roof system.

The company's roofing work also included a concrete walkway, perimeter sheet-metal flashing and 245 skylights that provide natural light and reduce the facility's electrical costs.
