Central Station Hotel
JRC was awarded the roof replacement contract for the historic Central Station Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee by General Contractor, Robins & Morton.
Built in 1914, operated by the Memphis Union Station Company, the historic building was once known as the Calhoun Street Station and served as a passenger terminal station. As a historic staple in Memphis, TN, the old train station building now is home to the Central Station Hotel. The Memphis-based hotel holds 124 rooms, a 3,500-square-foot restaurant, a 6,700-square-foot ballroom and 8,000 square feet of non-restaurant retail space — along with the Amtrak station. Additionally, it will feature a seven-screen Malco movie theater that include balcony seating and electric recliners; a restaurant and bar; and an eighth, outdoor screen and lounge on the rooftop.
For this project, JRC’s Scope of work focuses on the providing a full roof replacement without compromising the integrity of the historic infrastructure. To begin, JRC Production Team demoed the existing roof membrane down to the sloped concrete decking. To achieve the proper insulation and R-value, JRC adhered two layers of polyiso roof insulation per the approved tapered plan. After installing the necessary insulation, JRC adhered 300 sqs of Carlisle SUREweld TPO in the desired locations as per the manufacturer guidelines. Additionally, JRC installed walk pads along the high foot traffic areas where service equipment would need to be regularly inspected. To finish, JRC installed brand new box gutter system and downspouts to ensure the newly installed roof system has the necessary drainage system.
