Beacon Merchant Construction Completes Roof
Replacement Project at Large NYC Housing Complex

Beacon Merchant Construction, Inc. is a construction company affiliated with Beacon Consulting Group, Inc. The company has experience working on a diverse range of critical construction and renovation projects and has the bonding capacity needed to take on large jobs of all kinds.

In mid-2014, Beacon Merchant was retained by a leading Surety company to be the Completion Contractor for a multi-building roof replacement and asbestos abatement project in New York City. The contract involved the completion of roofing removal, asbestos abatement, roofing replacement, repairs, and related testing/instpection work for five separate high-rise buildings (ranging from 20 to 22 stories tall) located in the Bronx, NY. (Click here to view more photos below).

Beacon Merchant's team successfully completed the project in 2016, with the completion of "Buildings 5 & 6" and warranties received from the roofing manufacturer (GAF) for all roofs installed.

Some of the specialized aspects of the project included:

  • Stepping in to take over a project after the original contractor defaulted
  • Ensuring the safe removal and disposal of asbestos-containing materials (contained in old roofing removed)
  • Moisture testing to ensure roof integrity and identify any areas of concern (Cut Test & IR Thermography)
  • Installing multi-layer roof system properly
  • Complying with all GAF requirements for warranty approval
  • Properly Sealing / flashing all rooftop structures and parapets

The 5 buildings Beacon Merchant worked on are part of an 8-building public housing complex (Mott Haven Houses) managed by The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA). The overall complex contains more than 990 apartments and approximately 2500 people live there.
