Service Type:Remedial Waterproofing

Scope:Hot fluid-applied waterproofing, sheet waterproofing, concrete repair, expansion joint replacement, joint sealant replacement


For the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center renovation in Dallas, Texas, Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing was called to assess and rehabilitate many areas of the campus. Built in 1957, some areas in need of improvement had not been renovated since original construction. The main concerns were stopping persistent leaks with remedial waterproofing and expanding the storm drain system. The Chamberlin team was tasked with re-waterproofing the loading dock, A/B Hall, The Black Academy of Arts and Letters Building, the Arena Building and Ceremonial Drive.

The 1,800 SF loading dock had extensive water infiltration issues and spalled concrete. Chamberlin Senior Project Manager, Ryan Grigsby, acknowledged, “The only way to solve the problem was to demo the topping slab, remove the waterproofing membrane and start over.” Once the demo was completed, the Chamberlin team removed the old waterproofing and repaired damaged areas of the structural deck. The crew applied a hot fluid rubberized waterproofing system and drainage board. After reinforcing steel was installed and a new topping slab poured, Chamberlin applied an aggregate broadcast coating.

Grigsby and Chamberlin Superintendent Jerry Elliott are quick to compliment the entire team who worked on the job from the applicators to the architect and the City of Dallas. “It was really a team effort, especially working in a facility where thousands of people come through daily. With excellent field labor productivity and efficient material usage, this project was completed on time and under budget,” said Elliott.
