Representatives from the company received the awards March 1 during ABC’s 27th annual Excellence in Construction awards celebration in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
“Associated Builders and Contractors is proud to honor Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing with a best-in-class Excellence in Construction Eagle Award for their tremendous work in completing the Dallas Love Field Modernization Program and Project Delta safely, on time and budget,” said 2017 ABC National Chair Chuck Goodrich, president of Gaylor Electric Inc., Indianapolis. “The dedication to innovation, productivity and world-class craftsmanship demonstrated by Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing and its employees produced truly impressive results that any project owner would be proud of.”
Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing re-roofed the existing main terminal at The Dallas Love Field Airport and installed a new roofing system on the expansion of the main terminal, new baggage claim, ticketing wing and concourses. In total, 450,000 square feet of a torch-applied Soprema two-ply modified bitumen roofing system was installed.
Chamberlin also installed a 45,000 square-foot GAF PVC roof on the main canopy at the airport entrance as well as a 40,000 square-foot Firestone TPO roof system on a roadway canopy. Chamberlin’s scope of work also included the installation of 12,000 lineal feet of Hickman aluminum coping on all of the roofs combined.
Chamberlin’s role at Project Delta consisted of installing approximately 600,000 square feet of traffic coating to the three parking garages. Instead of a traditional barren concrete roof, the owner desired a more aesthetically appealing approach that the tenants could enjoy for years to come. The initial idea of the design was to simply paint the substrate, but there was an immediate concern because all proposed paints or coatings would fade to a certain degree. Chamberlin worked as a team member in an extensive mock-up and testing process to find the right polyurethane waterproof coating and color tint. In this case, colored pool quartz was utilized as a unique method to create colorful murals atop the parking garages. GPS surveying was used to draw the outlines of each mural and indicate the color transitions within the coating. Then, Chamberlin crews applied the different colors of coating to the correct areas, careful to stay within the lines and form the correct shapes using a literal paint-by-numbers approach. The result was a mural depicting aerial landscape views from the countries in which the end-user client operates around the world.
Other phases of the project included 500,000 square feet of TPO roofing, 255,000 linear feet of joint sealants and 3,000,000 square feet of waterproofing, totaling 333,400 man-hours and the contract nearing $28,000,000.
