Roofing contractors recognized for workmanship

Sika Sarnafil announces Project of the Year winners; competition highlights visually stunning, energy efficient, and sustainable roofs.

By By BD+C Staff | February 28, 2012

Winners of the 2011 Contractor Project of the Year Competition were announced by Sika Sarnafil. Winners were judged on project complexity, design uniqueness, craftsmanship, and creative problem solving.

Winners include:

  • TD Garden in Boston, Mass;
  • Grand Harbor Condominium in Destin, Fla;
  • New office complex in Warminster, Pa.; and
  • Griffin Hall, Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Ky.

A winner and two finalists in four different categories: Low Slope, Steep Slope, Waterproofing and Sustainability were recognized for outstanding workmanship in completing a project using a Sika Sarnafil thermoplastic membrane for roofing or waterproofing applications.

Low Slope Category Winners
Greenwood Industries, Inc. of Millbury, Mass. won first place in the Low Slope category for the re-roofing of the TD Garden, home to the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics. The 19,600-seat arena has a distinctive barrel roof now covered with an energy-efficient Sika Sarnafil EnergySmart Roof System. During the project Greenwood worked around a continuous schedule of TD Garden events and even withstood a hurricane to complete the project. The second place winner was All Weather Waterproofing, Inc., Salt Lake City, Utah, for the Wilkinson Student Center at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. Third place went to Letner Roofing Company, Inc., Orange, Calif., for the Pacific Design Center “Red” Building in West Hollywood, Calif.

Steep Slope Category Winners
In the Steep Slope category, Bel-Mac Roofing, Inc., of Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., was awarded first place for their work on Grand Harbor Condominium in Destin, Fla. High winds, numerous roof levels, and a complex geometric roof design pushed the Bel-Mac crew. The company’s creative problem solving enabled them to install a watertight Sika Sarnafil Décor Roof System that preserves the upscale look established by the condo’s failed standing seam metal roof. Peach State Roofing, Inc., Lawrenceville, Ga., was the second place finisher for the Catholic Center at the University of Georgia, Athens, GA, and Diamond Roofing Company, Inc., Syracuse, N.Y., was the third place finalist for the Finger Lakes Residential Center in Lansing, N.Y.

Waterproofing Category Winners
Tecta America Zero Company, LLC, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, took first place in the Waterproofing class for Griffin Hall, Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Ky. The company battled weather conditions and an aggressive schedule for this newly constructed facility, which involved three distinct roof areas and included a vegetated green roof protected by Sika Sarnafil’s G476 waterproofing membrane. Second place in this category went to A-1 Roofing Company, Elk Grove Village, Ill., for the United Cargo Facility in Chicago, and third place to CitiRoof Corporation in Columbia, Md., for the H.D. Woodson High School in Washington, D.C.

Sustainability Category Winners
In the Sustainability category, Delta Contracting Services, Inc., of East Brunswick, N.J., was awarded first place for a new office complex in Warminster, Pa. This facility received a very high worldwide LEED score for newly constructed office buildings and garnered a LEED Platinum Certification. In second place was Morris Roofing & Sheet Metal Corporation, Springfield, Mass., for the Mass Mutual headquarters in Springfield, Mass., and in third place for this grouping was Progressive Roofing, LLC, of Phoenix, Ariz. for the Wells Fargo Arena at Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz.
