Accolades for Fair Park Esplanade Project
Chamberlin completed the Fair Park Esplanade project in October 2009, and since that time the team has been recognized for their work by various organizations including TEXO The Construction Association’s 2010 Building Awards competition and Texas Construction Magazine’s Best Of Awards.
The 2010 TEXO awards program was the first for the Building Awards competition. The Building Awards was designed to be a consolidation of the North Texas chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors’ (ABC) Excellence in Construction and QUOIN’s Summit Awards programs. The new TEXO Building Awards consists of 30 categories for both general contractors and specialty contractors in which projects may be submitted. The projects were scored on criterion ranging from unusual design or construction techniques, special obstacles, personnel management, scheduling, quality control and safety, as well as the contractor’s overall performance and presentation of the project.
Chamberlin submitted Fair Park Esplanade under the “Other Specialty Construction” category. The project received the Merit Award and is now eligible to compete at ABC’s National Excellence in Construction Awards competition this November.
Texas Construction Magazine Award
Fair Park Esplanade also took home the Texas Construction Magazine Best of Award. Texas Construction conducts an annual awards competition that recognizes commercial construction and design excellence from projects across the states of Texas and Oklahoma. Projects were awarded based on factors including safety, innovation, contribution to the community or industry, construction quality and craftsmanship, function and aesthetic quality of design. Each category had one “Best of” award winner.
This year saw over 180 nominated projects, and Chamberlin is proud to earn the “Best of” Award for the “Specialty Contracting” category. The award ceremony will be held this December in Houston, Texas.
