DALLAS — KPost Roofing & Waterproofing announced work on the Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, has earned a national Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award, presented during the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Convention 2022 in San Antonio, on March 16. The EIC awards are the construction industry’s leading national competition that honors general and specialty contractors for world-class, safe and innovative construction projects from across the nation.
“We could not be prouder of the KPost men and women who safely and successfully completed this iconic project, Globe Life Field,” said Steve Little, president of KPost Roofing & Waterproofing. “This was a more complex project with a shorter timeframe than the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium, yet we completed it on time and within budget for our clients Manhattan Construction, Texas Rangers, and the City of Arlington.”
Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers, has one of the world’s largest retractable roofs. Foreman Thomas Williams led a crew of 80 from January 2019 to May 2020. KPost’s complex scope of work included installing approximately 450,000 square feet of Carlisle’s single-ply KEE PVC, a fleece-backed membrane for hail damage protection, and Liquiseal in gray to waterproof the steel structures penetrating the roof.
“For years, ABC has been honored to award outstanding construction projects like the Globe Life Field by KPost,” said 2022 National Chair of the ABC Board of Directors Stephanie Schmidt, president, Poole Anderson Construction, State College, Pa. “Through hard work on this project, KPost shows the value of teamwork, overcoming challenges and creativity on the jobsite.”
The EIC award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects are judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation and safety.
A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s judges included representatives from the Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America, University Research Institute and various construction-related firms nationwide.
