In New Orleans, a variety of warehouse rooftops splatter the city’s skyline. Many of the rooftops remain under-utilized, but they nonetheless present the tantalizing possibility of expansive space in an area where real estate is at a premium.
Online PR News – 04-October-2012 – Online PR News – For a variety of residential and commercial developers and remodelers, the chance to create a rooftop patio space with the help of Bison deck supports offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
When Bill Batherson and his wife moved into a converted condo in an old New Orleans warehouse, he was drawn to the vacant interior of an adjacent 19th century clock tower. After acquiring the property, Batherson and his wife spent the next three years restoring this space and creating a livable, functional masterpiece.
Outside the clock tower, a huge, graceful rooftop patio overlooking the city’s skyline was made possible with the use of elevated deck systems. An elevated deck system allows a deck to be installed on a rooftop without any penetration of the existing structure while maintaining the natural draining properties of the roof.
Bison pedestals supported and elevated 2 foot Dominican shell stone pavers, which served as the flooring in the outdoor patio space. The Bathersons have entertained more than 60 guests at a time on this outdoor patio, and the durable plastic decking supports from Bison have proven to be a good investment.
Bison deck supports are also used in high-visibility commercial applications. In New York City, Cooper Union College’s new academic building was recently selected as NYC’s first LEED Platinum building, which is the highest LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. At 41 Cooper Square, Bison deck supports, coupled with gray concrete pavers and green open spaces, provide students and staff with an innovative green rooftop.
From residential to commercial applications and everything in between, elevated deck systems provide the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors from a different vantage point. Rooftop patios and parks are fast becoming some of the most sought-after real estate options in the industry. And elevated deck systems are instrumental to this trend’s emergence.
