Gold Hammer Award for Outstanding Commercial Project
Client: City of Dallas
What we did: Installed a new built-up system including a newly designed tapered insulation system, custom stainless steel sheet metal flashing, installed fully adhered PVC single-ply roof system, modification to existing foam roof areas at clear story areas to terminate new PVC single-ply roof system, repaired existing foam roofs and applied a new urethane coating system. Install protective walkway pads with a second layer of concrete pavers. Install new drains, drain lines, and overflows. Install new back rods and sealants. Install new fall protection railing at skylights.
Challenges: 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.
As the bid date approached, we analyzed the various phases and the requirements outlined in the Bid Documents to properly clarify details in the scope of work to our production team and our various subcontractors to·ensure accurate quotes.
We reviewed the scope of work, and we were able to analyze all the client’s particular requirements, including atypical insurance requirements, site restrictions, work hour restrictions, construction safety issues, environmental concerns, and public safety interests. Several bids were submitted to the City of Dallas, but only four proposals were considered responsive, and Castro Roofing of Texas was the successful bidder and was awarded the project.
For several years Castro Roofing has worked on various projects for the City of Dallas. We knew from the beginning that this project would be the most challenging to date. Due to the high profile of this project, the City utilized several entities, including internal and external consultants, to co-manage the construction.
