While fall protection is always a serious concern in the construction industry, working becomes ever more frightful at 58 stories high. If you are a Professional Commercial Roofer, it’s just another day – even when the design calls for a roofline with an open edge! The roofing system for The Independent includes a fully-tapered roof inside a screened-in area that is surrounded by a narrow roof deck with no walls.
Texas Fifth Wall Roofing Systems, Inc. was contracted to complete the roof for The Independent by Balfour Beatty Construction. The tallest completed building in Austin, the 58-story Independent is 690 feet tall. Nicknamed the “Jenga tower,” the unique features of this building create an interesting architectural structure that distinguishes the Austin skyline.
Whether it is Austin, San Antonio or anywhere in the Central Texas Region, Texas Fifth Wall can provide the expertise required for your next Commercial Roofing or Industrial Roofing project.
