Built in 1977, the Oklahoma Gas & Electric Company's (OG&E's) Muskogee power plant provides electricity to Oklahoma's northeast corner. Performing reroofing work on such a facility carries a tremendous responsibility—any electrical service disruption could have potentially devastating effects for the community. And working in such close proximity to boilers presents a substantial safety risk to workers.

OG&E and the project's roof consultant, Amtech Building Sciences, Richardson, Texas, selected Empire Roofing Ltd., Fort Worth, Texas, to face the grueling task of reroofing boiler rooms No. 4 and 5.

Not for the weak
