Frederick Douglass High School Project

Frederick Douglass High School Project with Metal Wall Panels in Lexington, Kentucky (KY) and Fayette County

35,000 square feet of metal wall panels at Frederick Douglass High School in Lexington, Kentucky (KY)

In this article, ABR Construction – conveniently located in Nicholasville, Kentucky (KY) – highlights a project we recently had our one-year inspection on. We installed the roofing system for Frederick Douglass High School in Lexington, KY.

Last year, ABR Construction was extremely pleased to be able to install the roof for the new Fayette County high school, Frederick Douglass High School. We recently had our one-year walk-though and the manufacturer and representatives from Fayette County Public Schools were very happy with what they saw. This project was particularly difficult, and we couldn’t be prouder of our team’s attention to detail and the results of our craftsmanship. Contact us today if you want to learn more about what we can do for your business’s new or existing roof.

This project consisted of several different systems in order to meet the needs of the building. We included Dimensional Metal Incorporated’s 22 ga roofing, 130,000 square feet of Johns Manville’s 2 ply SBS Roof System, 81,000 square feet of a Standing Seam Metal Roof, and 35,000 square feet of metal wall panels.In addition to these roofing materials, this project was unique because we also had to install a continuous air barrier system in order to meet the strict building commissioning requirements for air leakage. We also sealed all of the walls and the perimeter of the roof with EPDM flashing to exceed the negative pressure testing.

At ABR Construction, we specialize in multiple types of roofs for a variety of different businesses. We have over 38 years of experience and are dedicated to making sure the roof of your business is high-quality and has everything you need it to. Because each roofing system is unique, our extensive experiences means we can help you make sure your business is protected from a variety of environmental factors.
