Chamberlin is proud to say they have received the Engineering News-Record (ENR) Texas & Louisiana's Best Project Merit award for their hard work on the Rolex building in Dallas, Texas. Judges selected the winning ENR Texas & Louisiana entries based on the following criteria: overcoming challenges and teamwork, safety, innovation and contribution to the industry and community, construction quality and craftsmanship, design function and aesthetics.
The new eight-story Rolex Building serves as an additional office for the Swiss watchmaker in Dallas, Texas, adjacent to the existing office built for the brand in 1984. This facility encompasses nearly 140,000 square feet, including 56,000 square feet of office space, with a four-story underground parking garage. Sidewalks tie the site to the rest of the Harwood District and across to the original Rolex Building.
Chamberlin's professional reputation and working history with Harwood led to them being selected to complete extensive waterproofing and roofing scopes for the new Rolex Building. Chamberlin installed 19,800 square feet of hot asphalt fluid-applied waterproofing on the landscaping, planters, cascading water feature and elevated decks above the below-grade parking garage/interior space. Cold-applied waterproofing was installed on exterior terraces, planters at higher elevations and the garden roof covering nearly 33,000 square feet.
In the parking garage, Chamberlin installed over 50,000 square feet of post-applied and preapplied sheet waterproofing on the walls, waterproof coatings on the service drive and elevated walkway, joint sealants and 15,000 square feet of air barrier.
Additionally, Chamberlin installed a hot modified roofing system, a PVC membrane roofing system, wood blocking, flashings and sheet metal.
Through complicated system installations and atypical conditions discovered, Chamberlin worked with the project team to create solutions and deliver high-quality work. Chamberlin's scopes were all completed safely and on time, some even ahead of schedule.
