Hello, my name is George Tracy. I'm an architect with Tracy Designs Studio and you are inside of the youth ministry building for West University Baptist Church. Structural system basic, concrete slab over drilled piers. Structural steel frame, load bearing steel stud walls and non-load bearing steel stud walls. Steel beam and heavy corrugated rib deck, concrete fill for the second floor, five inch total thickness.

Roof structure is bar joist and metal deck. Insulation on the low slope portions is, what's called polyisocyanurate and the insulation on the sloping portions of the ceiling is actually polisocyanurate with a plywood surface. The intent is to expose the underside of all the structure.

And so that's why those particular systems were used. Metal, standing seam metal roofing, and a single ply-membrane roof. It's white, very reflective. And the natural galvalume finish on the standing seam metal roof is also highly reflective. It helps with the LEED as well.
