Presented by Brock Martinez

Learning Objectives:

  1. Defining mission critical facilities: a spotlight on food processing, pharmaceutical/life sciences manufacturing verticals.
  2. Enhancing uptime and minimizing unanticipated costs: how your roof system can keep facility operations protected, covering the three R’s—redundancy, reliability and recovery.
  3. Cover the consequences of contamination: a look at FDA-regulated facilities and manufacturing best practices.
  4. Review: considering individual facility needs when selecting a roof system.



Critical facilities act as the spine of their organizations. Being able to conduct normal business operations requires that these facilities remain open and fully functional. Nearly half of all building-related problems can be traced back to water intrusion, which typically occurs through the roof: your building’s first line of defense.

Highly regulated industries, such as pharmaceutical/life sciences manufacturing and food processing, must maintain high-quality control standards, while implementing processes and systems that enhance operational uptime and minimize unnecessary or unanticipated costs. For critical facilities, the selection of a time-tested and resilient roof system is paramount in operational security.
