TANK 2012 Client photographs

These photographs were taken of the roof deck (May 2012) by our client and show the wonderful planting and how truly green it is up on a roof in the midst of industrial/commercial Chelsea. There are also a few photos of the clients' adorable cat Jenny within the space.

This photo has 5 questions

The table is teak - it is not built in but fabricated by a company Golden Teak - My clients have been happy with product - they have weathered nicely. The bench is custom and built in - it is made of ipe like the trellis.

The existing membrane roof was in good condition prior to our project. I do not know the manufacturer as we were not involved. At each penetration of existing roof (required for structural connections), we used a flashing pitch pocket and Kemper brand roofing.

These are concrete pedestal pavers (18x18 or 24x24) with a small pebble aggregate. I believe it was Wausau system - - but I don't have the exact spec handy. PEdestal pavers allow draingae to occur under the pavers (raised tiles). Here are some with stone aggregate - - which also give high non-slip factor. These are quite heavy for use on roof (to avoid uplift from high winds) - so you must confirm the structure below can support the weight. Hope this helps.

What is the red tree
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Looks like a Japanese maple (acer palmatum)...there are many varieties, including ones with purple to red summer leaf color.
