Congratulations to Jim Hadley from SIKA, Mike Jarman from Guaranteed Supply Company and John Lambert, Jr. from Stone Restoration of America for winning the 2018 Project of the Year Award.

Our 2018 Project of the Year Award Winner this year had a very large split slab with an old moisture barrier under the naked topping slab.

Removing the topping slab exposed a large volume of structural slab concrete repairs.  In addition to the structural slab, a complete repair to the rail bed structure was performed for the site’s heavy equipment operations.

Installing a new moisture mitigating system & a PMMA Deck coating is no small task on it’s own, but dealing with summertime heat & humidity can throw all kinds of wrenches into the production levels of working on top of a dam.

Apparently, when added scope of working high up the dam wall is added, it does not make a project any easier to accomplish. With extra manpower, long work nights, and triple safety checks it can be done.
