Dr. Phinnize J. Fisher Middle School
Greenville, South Carolina
The School District of Greenville County contracted Raymond Engineering to perform roof investigation services for Dr. Phinnize J. Fisher Middle School. A Peer Review was performed for the Architect, as well as submittal reviews and attending the pre-construction meeting. Over the duration of this two-year project, Raymond Engineering found numerous deficiencies. We performed curtain wall inspections and AAMA 501.2 water testing. This project also required Raymond Engineering to provide construction administration services, quality assurance inspections and formal detail reports were presented following each service completion.
A severe storm occurred suddenly during roofing operations and the roof was not covered. Raymond Engineering used the Tramex Deck Scanner to evaluate the results and found wet insulation on all five roof areas. Curtain wall inspections were also performed.
Raymond Engineering assisted with the design of specific aspects of the building, such as new overflow drains, canopy additions and crickets of the low sloped roof areas. The General Contractor, The Harper Corporation, has recommended our firm to numerous parties and the School District of Greenville County continues to recommend us for future projects.
The Dr. Phinnize J. Fisher Middle School is a Green Global Building.
