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.

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F. Kennedy Presidential Library holds many of the correspondences of the Kennedy Administration and other important historical documents, such as an unpublished book by Ernest Hemingway.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.
