The Chamberlin Dallas waterproofing team received the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) prestigious National Excellence in Construction (EIC) Award in the category of “Renovation Under $2 Million” at ABC’s national convention in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, March 17, 2006. The honor was bestowed upon Chamberlin for excelling in the areas of safety, quality, ingenuity and workmanship on the $1.3 million North Lake College project.

On the project, Chamberlin served as the General Contractor for the complete exterior restoration of two campus buildings. This not only marked the first win for Chamberlin, but it also marked their first entry.

“It is unusual for a first time entry to not only win the chapter award but the national award as well,” said LaDell Tullos, ABC North Texas Chapter’s Director of Programs and Events, “it has happened only three times in our chapter’s history. Congratulations.”

ABC’s EIC Awards competition, which recognizes and promotes outstanding projects built by ABC members on both a local and national level, has become the premier competition within the construction industry. All project submittals were evaluated on execution of design, craftsmanship, attention to detail, installation and safety practices. The event promotes a positive image and a competitive flair for the construction industry that acknowledges cutting edge technology, advanced processes and procedures utilized today.

The Chamberlin team won the ABC North Texas Chapter’s local EIC competition in October, 2005, which qualified them for the national contest. Chamberlin then competed against nearly 300 entries from ABC chapters nationwide for the National Award of Excellence and the coveted American eagle trophy. Vice President David Neal and Project Manager Bryan Payne accepted the National Award on March 17th in Las Vegas at ABC’s national convention.

“We are very excited to be recognized by the construction industry for our work on the North Lake College renovation project,” said David Neal. “This project was a group effort on every level from planning to completion. I would like to personally thank our hard working crews, Superintendent Pete Klein, Metro Masonry and our other great subcontractors for an award-winning job well done.”
