Industry Honors for Quality and Safety
AGC Houston APEX Award
Chamberlin was an APEX award winner at the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Houston chapter's gala on May 22, 2021. Evaluation criteria for the awards program include quality of workmanship, contribution to the community, timely completion and difficulty of construction. The APEX awards recognize firms for their excellence in construction, their valuable contributions to the community and their demonstrated commitment to skill, integrity and responsibility. Chamberlin won a silver APEX award in the specialty contractor category of Renovation/Restoration for work performed on the Heights High School project in Houston, Texas.
The school’s basement, housing an ROTC classroom in the upper half and a mechanical space in the lower half, suffered severe water infiltration issues due to unknown causes for over 20 years. Once on the job, Chamberlin discovered excessive water underground in addition to gas lines and underground structures not shown on the building drawings. With attention to detail and their expertise gained from decades of waterproofing experience, Chamberlin overcame these challenges to successfully install positive-side waterproofing, urethane grout injection and a French drain system around the building. The school is leak-free for the first time in decades, providing adequate classroom space for the ROTC cadets to learn and grow.
