Decision Time: Re-Roof or Re-Cover?

August 31, 2016

Torch-applied roofing

A lead environmental agency for the state of Texas recently faced roofing issues at their headquarters in Austin, TX. The facility was built in 1992 and is comprised of seven buildings. The existing standing seam roof on one of the buildings was starting to fail. The metal panels were coming apart, rust spots were emerging and the HVAC units needed to be upgraded. With a long history of remedial roofing projects, as well as substantial metal roofing experience, Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing was selected by General Contractor Kiewit Building Group to complete the roofing scope for this project.

Sack Summer Hunger

Metrocrest Services’ “Sack Summer Hunger Program” helps feed children during the summer who receive reduced or free meals during the school year. Throughout the season over 130,000 meals are distributed throughout the Carrollton, Addison, Farmers Branch and surrounding areas.

Each Saturday morning, volunteers sort and deliver easy-to-prepare, kid friendly meals and snacks. Chamberlin employees joined the ranks for a couple of weekends to help deliver the food to the families. They were glad they could contribute to such a wonderful program, which provides for almost 1,700 kids each year.

Chamberlin Named C3 Accredited Employer

July 22, 2016

C3 Accredited

Chamberlin was recognized as an accredited Construction Career Collaborative (C3) employer. The accreditation acknowledges Chamberlin’s compliance and commitment to C3 principles for its entire craft workforce on all projects.

The Construction Career Collaborative (C3) is a voluntary alliance of owners, contractors and specialty subcontractors dedicated to promoting the sustainability of the construction workforce. The mission of C3 is to provide a method whereby responsible owners, contractors and specialty contractors can positively affect the growth of a sustainable construction workforce by advancing principles that raise the image of the industry by attracting and retaining qualified workers, providing a safer and healthier work environment and improving quality, efficiency and productivity. C3’s Commitment to Sustainable Careers for our Workforce includes commitment to these three principles:

  1. Promote the financial security, health and well‐being of all craft workers.
  2. Require construction industry safety training standards for the workforce.
  3. Commit to craft training.

The commercial construction industry has been a provider of good jobs and careers for craft workers for decades. But, according to industry studies, that trend has been eroding in recent memory and a different kind of workforce is emerging. Desirable careers are giving way to a workforce that is aging, largely misclassified, under-trained, and diminishing in hourly workers.

While the Texas Legislature and cities around the state are poised to crack down on misclassification of employees, C3 offers an opportunity to get ahead of government in favor of a private sector solution. Adopters of C3 principles, like Chamberlin, will have the knowledge and ability to compete on a level playing field while creating a workforce that is sustainable for years to come. C3 compliance means our company has an independent third party’s recognition that we are committed to the industry’s best practices.

This training helps our team deliver more award-winning projects.

Chamberlin received an Associated General Contractors (AGC) Texas Building Branch Outstanding Construction Award for four different projects:

This awards program recognizes outstanding construction projects built by AGC members. Projects are evaluated on difficulty in construction, unusual construction techniques, final appearance and quality of the finished product, timeliness of completion and safety. Chamberlin is proud to be recognized alongside the other outstanding construction companies on these projects such as Vaughn, Hensel Phelps, Azteca-Russell Joint Venture and Austin Commercial.

The Hard Hats of Today Help the Smiles of Tomorrow

June 24, 2016

KIDstruction Week 2016

KIDstruction Week is an opportunity each year for North Texas’ architectural, engineering and construction firms to band together to raise funds and build strong futures for kids of all ages by supporting Children’s Health. Check out this video.

Chamberlin joined in the effort with partnering companies in the A/E/C industry. This was the first year Children’s Medical Center Foundation held KIDstruction Week, and the collective donations surpassed expectations. Almost $57,000 was raised for patient and family support services. Children’s Health’s mission is to make life better for children. They will distribute these collected funds to help support Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Children’s Medical Center Plano, eight specialty centers, twenty Children’s Health Pediatric Group primary care practices and many more. Chamberlin is happy to be a part of such a wonderful cause.

On Tuesday, June 21st, “Holiday in the Hospital” was held at Children’s Health Children’s Medical Center Dallas, and all participants of KIDstruction Week 2016 could attend. In addition to presenting the check with the funds raised to the hospital, the event was “design and build” oriented, in a small way teaching the patients about the industry we work in each day with hands-on-experience. There were many activities for the children to build with materials, decorate hard hats and more.

TEXO Softball Tournament

The temp was high and the competition fierce at the 2016 TEXO Softball Tournament, one of the most challenging of all the TEXO Challenge Cup events. There were home runs, stolen bases, good food, good friends and lots of fun this year.

Chamberlin’s estimating and operations departments teamed up to take on the challenge. Though they did not bring home a trophy, they had a grand time. They enjoyed playing with the top general contractors in the industry as much as they enjoy working with them. Congratulations to Manhattan Construction, who took home the gold as the 2016 TEXO Softball Champion!

The Billion Dollar Drive

May 4, 2016

Toyota World Headquarters Toyota Courtyard

 

Toyota first came to America in 1957 on October 31st and developed their first headquarters in Hollywood, California. Two years ago, Toyota Motor Company’s current CEO, Akio Toyoda, unveiled plans to establish the company's new North American headquarters in Plano, which will ultimately bring its 4,000 U.S. employees to a campus-style environment in North Texas.

Chamberlin was selected by general contractor, Austin Commercial, to perform the waterproofing on this expansive campus and began their scope in early December 2015. The current waterproofing scope, consisting of hot fluid applied asphalt waterproofing, water repellents, thermal repellents, air barrier, sheet metal flashing and trim, fire-stopping and joint sealants, is anticipated to take nearly two years to complete and expected to wrap in September 2017. However, the campus continues to grow as construction continues, new buildings still being designed as the campus develops, so there is still much to come.

Toyota officials estimate the One Toyota move, will cost more than $1 billion, which includes developing the multi-building, 100-acre corporate campus and relocating employees from Kentucky, New York and California to North Texas. Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz said as many as 75% of Toyota's existing workforce is expected to relocate to Texas. This means big things for the North Texas market in the years to come.

A Team Player

April 11, 2016

Curtis.jpg

Curtis Purvis, Chamberlin Superintendent, was featured on the cover of Professional Roofing for his “Best of the Best” honor. Curtis was chosen as a Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress Most Valuable Player in three of their five categories: leadership, safety and community service. In addition, he was honored with Professional Roofing’s ONE Best of the Best Award out of all of the entries from across the country.

"Receiving this award is a great accomplishment for an individual," says Tim Rainey, president of Supreme Systems Inc., Dallas, and MVP Task Force chairman. "We are impressed with the time Curtis devotes to charities, as well as his leadership on the roof every day. The roofing industry can no longer be defined simply as someone yielding a hammer but great people contributing to the community in many ways."

Curtis insists it was a team effort saying, "It's nice to get that pat on the back and recognition for doing a good job. I appreciate the award and the recognition of us as a company. But all the people behind that success—I wish I could give them awards, too.” 

From computer engineering to shipping to the roofing industry, Curtis’ path has been an interesting one. At Chamberlin, he oversees crews, recruits, trains new hires, communicates with clients and pitches in elsewhere when need be. "He goes the extra mile to make sure we meet or exceed their expectations." Bill Lawson, Chamberlin Vice President, says. "It is part of his personality. He always is asking the client if there is anything else he can do for them and making sure we install a quality roof in a safe and productive manner."

Sky-High Roofing

March 30, 2016

Austin-SkyHouse2.jpg

Austin's vision for a waterfront district is starting to come alive. This vision started with SkyHouse Austin, a 23-story building which was constructed in 2013. Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing was selected by the project's general contractor, Batson-Cook Company, to install the new TPO and barrel-shaped standing-seam aluminum roof systems. The 24-story drop to the ground made the height a major focal point in Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing’s innovative safety measures. Being tied off at all times and carefully constructing special jigs on-site in order to lift and maneuver supplies with no damage. All this height did not bring the Chamberlin crew down. They worked safely and diligently and completed their scope two weeks ahead of schedule. For its exceptional efforts, the SkyHouse Austin project was selected as a finalist in the 2015 Gold Circle Awards Outstanding Workmanship. Read about it in Professional Roofing here.

Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing is partnering with other local construction firms and AGC Charities, Inc. to help build “Morgan’s Inspiration Island,” a new handicap-accessible water park addition to non-profit Morgan’s Wonderland. Morgan’s Wonderland is the world’s first theme park designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built for everyone’s enjoyment. The new expansion to Morgan’s Wonderland will serve as the world’s first-ever fully-accessible water park when it opens in Spring 2017. 

John Walker, Chamberlin General Superintendent says, “This project is very dear to my heart, as I have a granddaughter that is autistic.” He and other Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing employees are volunteering their time to waterproof four different buildings for the water park addition. The project will be treated like an “Extreme Makeover’, where numerous individuals come together to make a difference in a small amount of time. GC Charities and the local contractors, who are calling themselves the Inspiration Island Working Group, will help build five new pump houses, a new main building and the signature lighthouse feature for Morgan’s Inspiration Island.

Rolex's Second Landmark in Dallas

February 15, 2016 

Rolex.jpg

Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing has kicked off the below-grade waterproofing for Rolex’s 136,857 square foot tower being built in Uptown, Dallas. This seven-story building is Harwood’s second development for Rolex and is being built next door to the original.

The original Rolex building is an Uptown landmark, built in 1984 as Uptown’s first office building. The new Rolex facility will be a landmark of its own as the first time a Japanese architect has designed an office building in Dallas, according to Harwood founder and CEO, Gabriel Barbier-Mueller. Designed by a Tokyo-based architect that “fuses nature and architecture,” this building is sure to stand out with its unique look of twisting floors. 

Chamberlin’s below-grade scope will include hot fluid rubberized asphalt waterproofing, sheet waterproofing, blindside waterproofing and joint sealants. Entire project completion is estimated for late 2017.

Putting the “Urban” in Suburban

January 26, 2016

 CityLine-Nighttime-Aerial.jpg

Chamberlin is wrapping up roofing and waterproofing for what some are calling the “Suburban Urban Boom.” CityLine in Richardson, TX,aspires to be an instant city with a true suburban, yet urban, environment. The walkable, pedestrian-friendly environment will attract a dynamic mix of full-time residents, workers and shoppers looking for extraordinary dining and entertainment options. Some are open already, including Tom + Chee, formally featured on “Shark Tank.” Check them out if you have a hankering for a grilled cheese donut.

State Farm has played a major role in the growth of this suburban area with their new two-million square foot, four-building regional office campus located in the heart of the CityLine. With construction almost complete on the fourth tower, State Farm intends to sell all four buildings in a sale-leaseback transaction and continue to occupy them on a long-term lease. This sale could fetch more than $700 million, making it one of the largest such real estate transactions ever in Texas.

Chamberlin’s role in this development included installing a TPO thermoplastic roofing system on the multi-family housing facilities, CityLine Block A & B. Combined, they contain 1,370 residential units. Chamberlin is also waterproofing these apartments, including below-grade waterproofing, cold-applied waterproofing, firestopping, joint sealants and site paving sealants. Block A is complete and Block B is slated for completion next month.

Chamberlin's roofing and waterproofing scope for State Farm’s headquarters is coming to a close, too. The four towers received a TPO roofing system, in addition to hot fluid applied waterproofing, below grade waterproofing, air barrier system, joint sealants and expansion joints.

Renovate to Elevate

January 5, 2016 

Aerial_2.jpg

The Love Field Modernization Program is the largest and most ambitious construction effort at Dallas Love Field airport since its establishment. The $519 million project involved a complete terminal renovation and expansion, new concourses, larger baggage claim area to accommodate future demand levels and a new ticketing wing. The entrance to the airport was also re-designed and expanded to allow for a more modern appearance.

Chamberlin was selected by General Contractor Hensel Phelps as the roofing contractor for this project. Chamberlin re-roofed the existing main terminal and installed a new roofing system on the expansion of the main terminal, new baggage claim, new ticketing wing and new concourses. In total, 450,000 square feet of a torch-applied Soprema two-ply modified bitumen roofing was installed in addition to 45,000-square-foot GAF PVC roofing, a 40,000-square-foot roof system on a roadway canopy and 12,000 lineal feet of Hickman aluminum coping. A 10-man crew worked for four years to complete this tremendous project on time and with no safety incidents.

Challenges surrounded this project including scheduling, roof access and pedestrian safety concerns at this bustling airport, which remained open for business during construction. One unique issue was encountered with an improperly installed roof deck. Details of how Chamberlin used insulation to solve the problem are found in this Roofing Contractor Magazine article. You can also read more about the project in this Architectural Roofing & Waterproofing article.
