Dallas City Hall
Award Winner – Gold Hammer Award for Outstanding Commercial Project
The Dallas City Hall Re-Roof was a challenging project, not only to bid but also to execute. From working in cramped quarters to debris removal, this project required creative solutions from planning through execution.
Intensified interest is always shown in a high-profile project.such as Dallas City Hall, as evident by over 30 specialty contractors in attendance at the pre-bid meeting. As the bid date approached, we analyzed the various phases and the requirements set forth in the Bid Documents to properly clarify details in the scope of work to our production team and to our various sub contractors to·insure accurate quotes. We reviewed the scope of work and with multiple job site visits were able to analyze all the clients special requirements, such as atypical insurance requirements, site restrictions, work hour restrictions, construction safety issues, environmental concerns and public safety interest. Several bids were submitted to the City of Dallas, but only four bids were considered responsive and Castro Roofing of Texas was the successful bidder and was awarded the project.
We knew from the beginning this project would be the most challenging to date. For several years Castro Roofmg has worked on various projects for the City of Dallas. Due to the high profile of this project the City utilized several entities, including internal and external consultants to co-manage the construction.
