Chamberlin Receives Three New Project Awards from ABC
Chamberlin has been honored with three awards from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) local Excellence in Construction Awards competition in Houston and North Texas, receiving two Excellence Awards and one Merit.
Chamberlin submitted two projects to the North Texas chapter awards competition. Both projects won Excellence awards. Children’s Medical Center Legacy Campus competed in the “Specialty Construction Less than $1 Million” category. Chamberlin was hired by Austin Commercial to perform the waterproofing scope of work on the project. This new project consisted of a four story hospital, a four story Children’s Ambulatory Care Pavilion, a central utility plant and an underground tunnel that connects the utility plant to the hospital. When work wrapped up on Children’s Medical Center Legacy Campus in the fall of 2008, the new campus was not only watertight but was also ready to provide children a peaceful facility to get the medical attention they need.
Chamberlin also submitted the Texas Women’s University (TWU) weatherproofing project into the “Renovation Less than $4 Million” category. TWU in Denton was originally established in 1901. Known as the largest public university for women in the United States, TWU has over 10,000 women enrolled in its undergraduate and graduate schools. Chamberlin was chosen as the general contractor by TWU to perform the exterior restoration of the Multipurpose Classroom and Laboratory building, Classroom and Faculty Office building and the Administration and Conference Tower. As part of this major renovation, Chamberlin focused on the exterior overhaul of the buildings.
Chamberlin also won a Merit Award at the ABC Greater Houston Chapter’s competition for emergency roof repair work performed on Memorial Hermann Hospital’s Medical Center campus after hurricane Ike swept through the Houston area in September 2008. The five-building Memorial Hermann campus suffered significant damage to its Spanish tile and flat roofing systems. Over the course of three weeks Chamberlin worked to remove hazardous debris, stabilize existing roof systems and install temporary roofs on the Life Flight helipad, over the emergency room entrance and throughout the entire campus until permanent repairs could be made.
All project entries for the ABC awards competition were judged on a number of requirements including safety, ingenuity and quality. We are proud of these projects and of our recognition for excellence at the ABC competition year after year.
