A Penny Saved is a Reputation Earned - Kingswood School at Cranbrook – Bloomfield Hills, MI

When most people think of copper, they tend to think about coin change in their pockets as opposed to roofs above their heads. While copper is still used in roofing today, the material has lost ground to less extensive alternatives, and many of the most dramatic copper applications sit atop older buildings as prominent reminders of the craftsmanship of a bygone era. An ambitious attempt to resurrect the splendor of the past is exactly what CASS Sheetmetal did to the roof of Kingswood School on Cranbrook’s National Historic Landmark campus in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

At nearly 90,000 square feet, the copper roof at Kingswood School is one of the largest in the United States, but its structural integrity had degraded over time. Without corrective action, water intrusion would slowly erode the venerable structure designed by Eliel Saarinen. Following the completion of an initial roof replacement (30,000 square feet) by the owner in 2001, the design/build team divided the remainder of the project into three work areas. The first area, where the initial work began covered the roofing over the dining hall, auditorium, common room and old ballroom. For roofing contractor, Custom Architectural Sheetmetal Specialists, Inc. a copper roof saved is a reputation earned at the completion of this enormous project.
