R. Commercial Roofing Solutions installs a roof system on a Chicago O’Hare International Airport terminal

Chicago O'Hare International Airport serves an average of more than 2,400 aircraft operations per day; in fact, in 2014, it was the busiest airport in the world in terms of the number of annual aircraft operations.

With the everyday hustle and bustle that accompanies those numbers, a unique challenge was presented when the airport needed a new roof system for Terminal 5, its international terminal.

R. Commercial Roofing Solutions, Schaumburg, Ill., was up for the challenge and won the bid for the $5.68 million project. The company was asked to install a complete roof system replacement on the terminal, which totaled more than 8 acres.
