Clarke Quay roofer, Stoni

How did you get involved in this project?
Through my company, although I would like to clarify that I’m not the person who is in charge of the overall project; I’m just supervising this particular phase of it.
What phase is it in?
It is in installation. Basically, we’re installing the roofing material, which we normally call “membrane.”
What are the structures actually called?
I don’t know if there is an actual name for these structures. For us, while we are on the job, we simply call them by their individual parts; “membrane” is our name for the roofing material.
Do you think of this current project as something that is out of the ordinary?
It is just like any other normal job, to be honest. I suppose you would admire the roof structures when you are finished with them, but during the installation process you do not have the time to think about this.
I suppose you would have to be up on the roofs all the time, while the project is ongoing?
Yeah, pretty much. For safety reasons, those who are going up onto the roofing structures will be strapped onto safety harnesses. The actual ascent is done through industrial equipment, such as the boom-lift.
How do you clean them?
The cleaning is actually done using just water and some soap.
What is the biggest problem you would have to deal with while on the job?
I suppose it would have to be the weather. If it rains suddenly and we are still up there fixing the “membrane,” we just continue; we can’t just stop whatever we are doing.
Fear of heights would be a big no-no if you want to be in this line, right?
Yes, of course. If you do not have a fear of heights, then it is only a matter of being careful while you are on the job. If you do have a fear of heights, then it is better if you do not come into this line.
