Sutter completes UTC mall roof

Sarasota-based commercial and industrial contractor Sutter Roofing completed the 90,000-square-foot roof at the Mall at University Town Center.

Sutter delivered and installed nearly 250 truck loads of materials and put in more than 40,000 man hours in a little more than a year to complete the project.

"Sutter Roofing is proud to be part of the team working on the first enclosed mall built in the nation since 2006," the company said in a statement.

It also used DensDeck roof boards, which feature a combination of fire resistance, strength and dimensional stability, and Rhinobond plates, which can be secured by welding the membrane to the plates using heat.

The result is a roofing system that uses fewer plates and fasteners while enhancing the wind uplift resistance, Sutter said.
