That's what Blue's Roofing Co., San Jose, Calif., did when
working on Etcheverry Hall, a six-story, 47-year-old building at
the University of California, Berkeley, home of the Golden Bears.
Etcheverry Hall houses the university's departments of industrial

the building's plaza deck area that was replaced with an
SBS-modified bitumen roof system.
