Dustin Murphy, Waterproofing Project Coordinator for Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing, is one of the latest recipients of the Patrick J. Kiley Excellence in Leadership Scholarship Award (PKEIL). Along with seven other Houston-area college bound and current university students, Murphy received a portion of the $40,000 in scholarship winnings. Murphy has been working for Chamberlin since 2007 while attending San Jacinto Community College. He is transferring to University of Houston Clear Lake next spring and plans to complete a Bachelor’s of Science by 2016. The PKEIL Scholarship Award was established more than 15 years ago, and renamed in honor of Pat Kiley who served as AGC Houston Executive Vice President for 21 years. More than $300,000 in scholarships have been awarded to students pursuing degrees in construction-related disciplines since 1996.
Chamberlin Roofing and Waterproofing received a Merit Award in TEXO’s Distinguished Building Awards competition for their work on the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas. For this bank serving the 11th District, Chamberlin performed exterior skin waterproofing restoration, cleaning and sealing. Covering over 260,000 square feet of Indiana limestone skin, Chamberlin cut out and recaulked over 33 miles of structural silicone and 25 miles of wet glazing on the curtain wall. With five swing stages and 20 men in 12 months, Chamberlin revitalized the aesthetic appeal of the building and sealed it watertight.
TEXO’s Distinguished Building Awards competition acknowledges contractors prevailing in the construction industry. The projects are judged on difficulty in construction, innovative construction techniques, final appearance and timeliness of completion. Receiving this Merit Award is an honor and also gives Chamberlin eligibility to compete for the prestigious Eagle Award in ABC’s National Excellence in Construction Awards competition later this year.
