SMT is currently using our DigiScan 360 services to scan the roofing membranes of the up and coming “urban resort”, Parq Vancouver. Known as Canada’s new entertainment destination, Parq Vancouver offers: two luxury hotels, world-class casino gaming, eight new restaurant and lounges, a rooftop park, a Spa by JW, Vancouver’s largest hotel ballroom, and more.
For this project, the DigiSCAN 360 services were utilized to confirm that both the roofing and waterproofing were installed as designed, and planned by the construction group -quality assurance at its finest. Waterproofing and roofing contractors use the DigiSCAN 360 services to show that the roof membrane was intact immediately after their installation - and then to re-scan prior to covering with overburden such as drainage mat, insulation, and green roof, or concrete pavers. With the DigiSCAN 360 service, contractors can see that the membrane is often damaged by “others,” -either by accident or on purpose, versus a lack in workmanship or leaks caused by the installed methods. This is prominent on tight urban development sites, as there is only so much area for storage and other construction above. Identification of these leaks after installation and further construction allows for them to be fixed, and keeps the quality of the membrane intact.
Quote from Daryle, Site Foreman: “I can sleep at night on this project - because I know the membrane will be scanned prior to being covered…. Otherwise I’d have to watch what all these other guys are doing to “my” membrane.”
SMT is pleased to be involved with such an exciting, and innovative project, and can’t wait to see the finished development!
