Commerce Tower

Cornell Roofing & Sheet Metal Loves a Challenge!

Roofing the Iconic Commerce Bank Tower, a Postmodernism architectural masterpiece in Downtown Kansas City was a challenge and an opportunity. With its slopping metal roof rising above the 20-story structure at over 258 ft, the logistics, timing, safety planning, and challenges were all taken into consideration during the planning phases.

Scaffolding had to be erected around the entire building’s Penthouse and roof for both safety and logistical reasons. Applying Wall panels to the side of a building while over 200 feet up requires the kind of steely nerves that experience and Cornell’s and the Trades’ on-going training and certification programs help provide.

As Cornell’s Tradesmen and Tradeswomen complete this Downtown KC Icon’s roof, we promise to bring you some of the stunning shots that have made Commerce Bank Tower such an important part of the downtown skyline.
