Protecting Boston’s Past and Future!

Boston, MA – We stopped at different roofing projects around the city of Boston. First, we stopped at Massachusetts Institute of Technology to observe a Sarnafil Roofing system installation by Titan Roofing. Then, we headed to the Boston Campus of the University of Massachusetts to see the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and the neighboring Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate.

No leaks here!

We can only imagine the work that has been accomplished in MIT’s building 31 since its construction in 1929. Occupied by the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the building has housed work for engine design, advanced propulsion systems, and fluid mechanics. Joe from Titan Roofing explained to us that active experiments in the building prevented MIT from demolishing the building to construct a new one. However, the building is undergoing a complete renovation to support the institute’s important research. When we arrived, Titan Roofing was ensuring the completed sections of the fully adhered Sarnafil membrane were not leaking during the rainy Boston morning. Three sections of the building were constructed at different points in MIT’s history, but the renovation will modernize the entire structure. The Sarnafil Roofing system installed by Titan Roofing will protect this important building and the intensive work done inside it.

The Stata Center at MIT is also covered with a Sika Roofing System.

On the other side of the city, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library holds many of the correspondences of the Kennedy Administration and other important historical documents, such as an unpublished book by Ernest Hemingway. The facility opened in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter and the Kennedy family as a way to showcase the life and presidency of John F. Kennedy. The library is next to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate; the institute offers several exhibits to educate the public about the United States Senate. Both of the incredible buildings are covered by Sika Roofing systems to protect the significant documents and exhibits inside. As we have learned, Boston is dedicated to preserving the past through its libraries and improving the future with its learning institutions. Sika Roofing systems will help these facilities to continue their important work.

  • After spending yesterday and this morning building and decorating their boats, four teams paraded their vessels before a supportive crowd and then entered the harbor for a race.  Once the teams rounded the harbor, the crowd favorites were picked and the Sikaflex trophies were awarded to the well deserving teams.  It was great to be part of the #camdenwindjammerfestival and see the fun each team had learning about boat building. #boatbuilding #camdenmaine

  • The Mary Lee Clark and Matilda Harris Elementary Schools shared a problem: they both had leaking standing seam metal roofs. Today both roofs are leak-free and ready to welcome students back to school with the help of the watertight metal look like Sarnafil Decor roof system. “I’m really pleased with the appearance,” Frank A. Neagle, AIA, project architect at Buckley and Associates of Savannah, Georgia, said. “I bet that 95 percent of the time people think it is a metal roof.” #MetalLookAlike #DecorRoof #SikaSarnfil #BackToSchool
