Work under wraps

Insulated Roofing Contractors reroofs Miami International Airport's main terminal

Miami International Airport is one of the world's busiest airports, ranking 29th among all airports in 2007 for total number of passengers, according to U.S. and Worldwide Airport Rankings 2007. With more than 80 airlines serving about 150 worldwide destinations, the airport's traffic is consistently heavy.

So when Miami International Airport's main terminal needed a new roof system because of its age and numerous leaks, the Miami-Dade Aviation Department requested that the work be completed without interfering with the airport's daily activities.

Insulated Roofing Contractors, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., learned about the project when it was put up for public bid and eventually was awarded the contract.

"We were asked to provide a complete reroofing package for the 455,567-square-foot main terminal," says Sean Stumler, Insulated Roofing Contractors' vice president of sales.
