Chamberlin was recognized at the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) Greater Houston Chapter Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards for their exemplary work on two projects. The awards ceremony was held at the Wortham Theater on Thursday, October 20, 2011.
Chamberlin’s work on the George Bush Intercontinental Airport Terminal A Roof Replacement project won a Merit award in the “Other Specialty Construction” category. As a result of life-cycle degradation and subsequent damage caused by Hurricane Ike, Chamberlin was called on by General Contractor Axiom Construction Company, Inc. to remove and replace the existing roof system, which is approximately the size of two and a half football fields. Chamberlin installed a new Energy Star rated single-ply system while following strict TSA protocols with zero business interruptions.
Chamberlin walked away with another Merit award in the “Specialty Contractor Finish Exterior” category for their work on the City of Houston Central Permitting Center. As the waterproofing and masonry restoration subcontractor to Manhattan Construction, Chamberlin performed new construction and remediation work to restore the 187,000 square foot building. This project is LEED Gold certified, fulfilling the city’s Green Building Resolution on buildings over 10,000 square feet.
Chamberlin also received a merit award at the 2011 Distinguished Building Awards by TEXO in the “Other Specialty Construction - All Contract Amounts” category for their work on the ONCOR Dallas Center. TEXO is the construction association representing commercial contractors in North and East Texas. As the single source for both the roofing and waterproofing on the ONCOR project, Chamberlin removed and replaced the roofs on both eight-story towers as well as completely restored the exterior façade. The winners were announced May 17, at The Hotel Intercontinental in Addison, TX.
All projects will go on to compete at the national level in the ABC EIC Awards.
