SPFA AWARDS SPF KEY PART OF DOME'S DESIGN SPFA 2015 NATIONAL CONTRACTOR EXCELLENCE AWARD WINNING PROJECT (SPECIALTY APPLICATIONS) Congratulations to Western Pacific Roofing Corp., winner of the 2015 National Contractor Excellence Award for Specialty Applications. This project is an example of SPF's unique performance, applicability and appeal, in this case at a 2,600-square-foot monolithic dome in Redlands, California. The material supplier for this job was Demilec USA. M onolithic domes are designed to have a life span measured in centuries, not decades. And, they "meet FEMA standards for providing nearabsolute protection and have a proven ability to survive tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, most manmade disasters, fire, termites and rot," according to Monolithic Dome Institute's website, www.monolithic.org/domes. So, it should come as no surprise that spray polyurethane foam is a key component of a monolithic dome. While they are considered concrete structures, they are reinforced using inflatable Airforms, steel and... SPF. The tricky part, however, is applying the sprayfoam correctly and safely. Western Pacific Roofing Corp. conquered this, plus more, when they installed foam on the Hildebrand Dome Construction Monolithic Dome in Redlands, California Jill Ludvickson of Western Pacific Roofing Corp. accepts the award from SPFA President Denny Vandewater. 48 SPRAYFOAM PROFESSIONAL | Spring 2016 - right over the San Andreas Fault - thus earning a well-deserved Specialty Applications award. Western Pacific's contract was to install 3 inches of closed cell foam directly to the interior of the monolithic dome. Using closed cell sprayfoam allowed for high R-value with limited space. Plus the sprayfoam worked perfectly with the shape of the home. The foam was applied in three separate passes and completed in two days, which was one of the challenges. "Staying on schedule was mandatory," said Richard "Rich" Brunelle of Western Pacific. So the first day's work had to completely free of complications. On the first day, SPF was applied 3/4" thick to the Airform. Then another pass at 3/4" thin. "This was difficult and our applicator had to be very careful not to spray too much foam in the first pass," http://www.monolithic.org/domes
