The beginning of the roofing project

Park Station Condominiums is a four-story, 99-unit condominium complex in South San Francisco, Calif. Adjacent to the Bay Area Rapid Transit Station (BART), the complex also includes parking for up to 121 vehicles, fitness facilities and media lounge.

When planning the $27 million project, city officials wanted a distinctive roofing material that did not require much maintenance. A standing-seam metal roof system was chosen, and Arbor Building Group Inc., Lafayette, Calif., the project's general contractor, asked Lefco Inc., Sunnyvale, Calif., to bid the project as the roofing subcontractor.
