In Albuquerque, New Mexico (January 28, 2015):  


The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) presented their National Industry Excellence Awards, in January. Western Pacific Roofing was the winner  in the category, Specialty Applications, for their work on the Monolithic Dome home in Redlands, CA.  Western Pacific Roofing was also a finalist in the category, foam roofing projects over 40,000 SF for their work completed at the PGA West Residential Private Clubhouse.


Hildebrand Dome Construction, Monolithic Dome –  3” of closed cell foam was directly applied to the interior of the Monolithic Dome.   The Monolithic Dome is a reinforced concrete structure that can be built quickly and economically.  Closed Cell Spray Foam allowed for high R-value with limited space. Closed Cell Spray Foam is just one step to completing the high quality, hyper insulated permanent home that protects it’s inhabitants from elements of disaster.  SPF would help improve the structural stability of the dome helping the dome meet FEMA standards for providing ”near absolute protection” Once complete the dome has the ability to survive tornadoes, hurricanes and  earthquakes.  The Monolithic Dome with SPF applied is absolutely micro energy efficient.  The energy needed to maintain a comfortable interior are ¼ of any normal structure.  The domes are designed to have a life span measured in centuries.  Involved in this project was applicator Juvenal Villa who passed the Field Exams in January 2014. Certified Project Manager Jill Ludvickson and Richard Brunelle were also involved.


PGA West Residential Private Clubhouse – This 48,600 square foot project in La Quinta, CA was a natural fit for the use of spray polyurethane foam.  The architecture with multiple levels and narrow roof areas would have been difficult at best with the use of any other system. The number one priority was on safety for the workers as well as club members as access and the interior of the building remained available throughout the construction process  of Western Pacific Roofing employees have passed the CPI safety course and have CPR and First Aid certifications.  Many of Western Pacific Roofing’s employees are certified through the SPFA PCP certification program or are enrolled in the process.  Involved in this project were applicators Ismael Caballeros and Juvenal Villa, both who passed the Field Exams in January 2014. Certified Master Installer Keith Kammer and Certified Project Manager Ron Winkle were also involved.
