New Denver Apartment Complex Protected by TPO Roof System

Created with busy professionals and young families in mind, 19Nineteen Mile High Apartments is a 12-story, 277-unit complex in Denver, Colorado. Located next to the home of the Denver Broncos, Empower Field at Mile High, the luxury complex is also within walking distance of stores, restaurants, parks, and Downtown Denver. 19Nineteen Mile High Apartments offers residents a variety of amenities, including a rooftop pool and a fitness center with outdoor access. The project was developed, designed, and built by the Opus Group, a family of commercial real estate development, construction, and design companies headquartered in Minneapolis and with offices and projects across the country. Advanced Roofing Technologies, a Versico Authorized Contractor since 1997, was selected to install the roofing system.

A Durable Roof System

For this new construction project, Advanced Roofing Technologies and Opus selected a fully adhered assembly made up of two layers of Versico Roofing Systems’ VersiCore Polyiso insulation, a cover board, and a 60-mil VersiWeld TPO membrane. This durable system would provide the building with excellent protection against the harsh Colorado weather, which includes cold temperatures, snowy winters, and frequent hailstorms.

The 12-story building includes five roof levels totaling approximately 27,213 square feet. The roofing system was adhered from the deck up and had more than 300 penetrations. To begin, Versico’s Flexible DASH, a two-part low-rise adhesive, was sprayed in 6-inch beads directly onto the concrete deck. The Advanced Roofing Technologies crew then installed two layers of 2.6-inch-thick VersiCore Polyiso insulation, a fully tapered polyiso system to ensure proper drainage, and a 1/4-inch-thick DensDeck Prime cover board. Once the cover board was installed, the crew used Versico’s TPO Bonding Adhesive to install the 60-mil TPO membrane.
