Microsoft announced plans to expand its Cheyenne data center presence with a $274 million investment. As unique weather patterns frequently roll across this expansive landscape, Lerch Bates was tasked with mitigating weather-related risks associated with the new data center’s building envelopes. Lerch Bates provided a number of performance testing and quality assurance related services to verify proper function of the buildings’ enclosures including ASTM E907 Field Testing Uplift Resistance of Adhered Membrane Roofing Systems to ensure the buildings’ installed roofing membrane could withstand the wind loads of the Wyoming plains. Due to the large-scale size of the data center structures and square footage of their roofs, Lerch Bates performed an infrared imaging survey of the roofing membrane from an airplane. Following ASTM C1153-90 Standard Practice for the Location of Wet Insulation on Roofing Systems Using Infrared Imaging, Lerch Bates was able to locate wet areas within the roofing substrate where damaging water had penetrated the new roofing membrane.
