Englert worked directly with the roofing contractor, CFS Roofing Services in Fort Meyers, who already had an established relationship with Englert and has utilized the products in the past. This project was massive in scale and the construction team had to fight through COVID and supply chain issues to complete it. The project was so enormous that Englert had to continue operations around the clock to produce enough clips for the panels. Everything had to be staged down to the minute detail to make sure that both material and labor were appropriated in a timely manner.
In addition to the magnitude of the project, the team had to deal with the architectural complexities of the design. There were cupolas, turrets, hexagonal and circular areas, and overhangs that needed to be covered. And it all had to be coordinated building by building. It took 12 months and 20 days to complete this massive undertaking, but the results speak for themselves. Additionally, Englert Inc. provided a weathertightness warranty on this project for the next 20 years. The structural durability along with the engineered beauty of the roof is impressive. This complex will be a safe and welcome home for residents for decades to come. MR
