STRUCTURESCAN SURVEY IDENTIFIES AREAS OF MOISTURE TRAPPED WITHIN CADBURY'S ROOF SYSTEM

Cadbury's  Rockford Plant located in Loves Park, Illinois, a large candy manufacturing and packaging facility was experiencing numerous leak areas in non-production areas of the plant. Due to the high sensitivity of food manufacturing Cadbury contacted StructureTec to ensure that the roofs over their production areas were in sound condition.

 

StructureTec performed a StructureScan® infrared survey to identify areas of entrapped moisture within the roof system. Anomalies were identified totaling approximately 9,500 square feet. It was recommended to Cadbury that they fully replace one roof area, while cutting out and replacing wet insulation in other roof areas.

 

One major challenge faced was that winter was fast approaching and there was not enough time to complete all repairs. StructureTec quickly helped Cadbury prioritize immediate repair areas, develop a repair specification, obtain competitive bids from multiple contractors, and oversee the construction while in progress.

 

The following spring StructureTec re-scanned all roof areas to ensure that the areas that  had been repaired in the fall were in sound condition and to assess the growth of the areas that were not repaired. The StructureScan┬« revealed that the areas repaired were in sound condition and the remaining areas experienced minimal growth. StructureTec was then able to manage the rest of the repairs ensuring quality was maintained.

 

In conclusion, Cadbury was able to identify problematic areas, and develop a managed repair program to ensure maximum risk mitigation and cost control for this highly sensitive manufacturing facility.
