Chamberlin in the News

Buda Building

August 22, 2017
 New Chamberlin Office in Buda, TX

Chamberlin opened their newest office earlier this year in Buda, TX, just South of Austin, TX. The 20,000-square foot facility has a sleek design created by Alliance Architects. Raymond Construction was the General Contractor, and many other subcontractors contributed to the overall success of the new facility.

The energy efficient building contains LED lighting throughout the building and sensor faucets on all sinks. The 10,000-square foot warehouse space is ideal for Chamberlin’s in-house sheet metal fabrication shop. The craft and safety training room and main conference room both have cutting-edge technology, equipped with the latest A/V controls, allowing all Chamberlin offices across Texas and Oklahoma to collaborate and communicate smarter and faster to better serve our clients.

Founded in 1897, Chamberlin branched out from Michigan to Texas in 1978, when they opened their first office in Houston, TX. Since then, they have grown to serve Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico with offices in Houston, Farmers Branch, Austin and San Antonio, as well as Moore and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Controlled Descent Device Training

August 11, 2017

Controlled Descent Device Training

Chamberlin crew members trained on how to properly use a controlled descent device. Chamberlin Safety Coordinator, Edgar Vilchis, led the training which began with lecture and demonstration training and ended with repeling down the side of the building. Check out this video

Here are a few tips from OSHA on how to ensure that descent control devices have the strength and structural integrity to support employees safely:

1. Train employees in the use of the equipment before it is used.
2. Inspect equipment each day before use.
3. Properly rig the equipment. In all cases use sound anchorages and tiebacks. 
4. Ensure that all lines, connections and anchor points installed are capable of sustaining a minimum of 5,000 pounds.
5. Ensure that ropes are effectively padded where they contact edges of the building, anchorage, obstructions or other surfaces which might cut or weaken the rope.
6. Provide for intermittent stabilization for descent in excess of 130 feet.

New Houston Luxury Residential Tower

April 17, 2017

Greystar Chamberlin crews are working hard at the Greystar Apartments Latitude Med Center luxury residential tower, a new 35-story high rise sitting atop ten levels of parking. These apartment homes and adjoining hotel, also under construction, are needed to meet the growing market demands not only for the adjacent Texas Medical Center, but also the Greater Houston area. Micro units will be as small as 350 square feet and penthouses over 3,500 square feet.

The facility was designed with top-notch amenities, high quality finishes and a variety of on-site conveniences to create an environment that will enhance the overall living experience. Residents will have access to a pool, two outdoor kitchen areas, fitness facilities, a meeting room and business center, a clubroom and a dog walking area. The 10th floor will offer its own garden terrace.

Working under Hoar Construction, LLC, Chamberlin waterproofing crews are installing crystalline waterproofing, hot-fluid applied asphalt waterproofing, bentonite waterproofing, site sealants, traffic coating, air barrier and joint sealants.

Next, Chamberlin roofing crews will install a TPO roofing system, sheet metal, coping and counter flashing. The project is projected to finish in 2018.

Flying With Eagles

March 24, 2017

ABC Excellence in Construction and National Safety Excellence

Chamberlin's work on the Dallas Love Field Modernization Program and Project Delta earned the company two first-place national Excellence in Construction Eagle Awards from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). Chamberlin also received the prestigious National Safety Excellence Award. Representatives from the company received the awards March 1 during ABC’s 27th annual Excellence in Construction awards celebration in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Excellence in Construction awards program is the industry’s leading competition, developed to honor innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects. This year's judging panel of industry experts included representatives from the Design-Build Institute of America, Engineering News-Record and the Construction Users Roundtable, among others. 

The Dallas Love Field Modernization Program was recognized in the Specialty Contracting category. Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing installed nearly 550,000 square feet of roofing for the expansion and renovation of this landmark airport. During construction, the team identified a water pooling issue due to an improperly sloped roof deck and offered an innovative solution

Project Delta was awarded in the Specialty Contracting - Exteriors category for its unique parking garage roof murals that could stand up to the weather. Instead of using paint, Chamberlin installed 600,000 square feet of traffic coating with colored pool quartz in a paint-by-number approach to create beautiful murals depicting the owner's campuses across the world. 

ABC's National Safety Excellence Award recognizes companies who exhibit a continued commitment to jobsite safety and whose safety performance and programs are judged to be exemplary by the ABC National Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Committee.

Dallas Cowboys Headquarters

March 15, 2017

Dallas Cowboys The Star

The Star, a 91-acre, $1.5 billion complex in Frisco, TX, is home to the new Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, The Ford Center and two NFL compliant practice fields. 

The Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters is a six-floor office building with a two-level parking garage. The Ford Center is a state-of-the-art, 510,000 square foot indoor athletic facility containing the Dallas Cowboys indoor practice field, training room, office space and hydrotherapy. Chamberlin worked on both facilities and their parking garages installing approximately 320,000 square feet of spray-applied air barrier, 215,000 square feet of hot fluid-applied waterproofing, 200,000 linear feet of sealants and 125,000 square feet of sealer. Chamberlin’s scope also included firestopping, water repellents, sheet metal flashing and trim, pavers and expansion joints. This massive scope was completed in 16 months with a total contract amount of nearly $5,000,000.

Chamberlin had to employ some creative methods to install the firestopping and sealants at the top of the south wall. An eyebrow at the top of the wall prevented Chamberlin crew members from being able to access the area from an aerial boom lift or swing stage. The equipment would raise them almost 200 feet in the air, but they then had to crawl on the structure’s steel beams to reach the installation area. Connecting boards were installed so they could move from beam to beam. High winds further compounded this already challenging worksite.

Chamberlin created an intricate two-man system with dual leg lanyards and beam clamps to allow the crew members to complete this work safely. This extremely challenging and unordinary installation method was not only performed under extreme time constraints, but performed safely and successfully.

TEXO awarded Chamberlin a Distinguished Building Award for their work on this project.

The Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas

March 2, 2017

 

The Driskill is the oldest operating hotel in Austin, TX, and it is rich in history. Dating back to the 1800's, Colonel Jesse Driskill purchased the bare plot of land for $7,500. In just two years, the hotel was transformed into one of the most prominent, luxury hotels in Austin and beyond. 

The hotel has seen its share of notable visitors to include Lyndon Baines Johnson, who brought his future wife, Lady Bird Johnson, on their first date at The Driskill Grill.

Time and weather have taken a toll on this Austin landmark, prompting a need to restore the damaged balconies. Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing was enlisted to repair the four balconies and serve as the General Contractor. The scope includes concrete demolition, concrete installation, framing, sheet metal flashing and trim, balcony waterproofing and plastering. The project is scheduled to be complete in May 2017.
