Project-4 Penington Friends House! ! Roof+Deck
Cost- $97,000 Roof- stripping repair 4” rigid foam isulation Carlyle Rubber System——-$80,000 Steel and redwood deck——$17,000
Penington Friends house, at the time ! of this project was a 100 year old Quaker residential community. One of the many attributes of the Penington was, and is the numerous community spaces that are available for the residents. One of these was a small deck, more of a platform on the roof that functioned as a deck. This small space had no railings and complete access to the roof and parapet perimeter.!
When I was involved with the re-roofing of the building the removal of the platform became necessary. At this point it was decided to provide a new more secure rooftop space.!
We embarked on a complete stripping of the existing roof down to the planking. Then the carlyle system consisted of 4” foil back dense foam insulation with the rubber sheets applied over. All parapets were repointed and lead coated copper was applied over as capping.

Project-4 Penington Friends House! Roof+Deck
I worked with an engineer to design a roof deck system which would meet the needs of a Carlyle Rubber Roof system. This particular system required that nothing should come in contact with the horizontal rubber. Therefor we inserted W flanges into the parapet walls, allowing the deck to float.
I designed a system whereby the C end of the longitudinal W flange would insert into the A horizontal steel beam and then rest on top of the B horizontal beam allowing for the necessary cantilever to reach the bulkhead door.

Project-4 Penington Friends House! Facades refacing Project Manager
Penington Friends House suffered the same fate as ! many other Brownstone in Manhattan in terms of its facade.! At some point after neglect the ornamentation on the ! facade of the structure began to weather and fall off. In addition to this the cornices on many brownstones fell on to the sidewalks creating concern. The response was to remove the cornices and all potentially dangerous ornamentation. What the city ended up with was streets of smooth faced structures. This was the fate that befell the Penington.!
Over time spalling developed, water penetrated and gaps became apparent around the windows. !
I interviewed various contractors in the neighborhood who were refacing brownstones and invited them to present a proposal. The Board of Directors were presented with a bid after I negotiated with the contractor for the sum of $52,500. !

Project-4 Penington Friends House! Facades refacing
The way they resurface is by jackhammering the old surface down to the original stone.! Then a mixture of tinted cement is troweled over the stone and scribed to resemble the cut stones.!
Moldings were fabricated around windows and doors based on a photo from the 1920â€?s.!
We noticed, during the following winter that the heating use was down, and rooms were much warmer, less drafty.

In this quick study I was interested in exploring! the structure of the model. There was a strength! and permanence to the way she positioned herself ! which masked the fragility of her frame.
