Sika 2020 Project of the Year

Sika Sarnafil honored 15 roofing contractors for completing exceptional work on commercial projects in 2020 during its first-ever virtual Project of the Year award ceremony.

Each year, Sika recognizes commercial contractors from around the country that achieve outstanding accomplishments in the areas of design, application and installation. Contractors are recognized in five different categories: low slope – new construction, low slope – reroofing, steep slope, sustainability and waterproofing.

Sika received nearly 50 submissions for its 2020 Project of the Year awards. The Hutto TX Roofing Company recognized 15 projects and the companies that completed them during an awards ceremony held April 29. Typically, the award ceremony is celebrated in person during the International Roofing Expo, but due to the pandemic, Sika held a virtual award ceremony.

“You should be very proud of the excellent work that you did not only on these jobs, but we’ve done a lot of other jobs together,” Brian Whelan, executive vice president at Sika, told attendees of the virtual ceremony. “We’re proud of being associated with you, we can’t do what we do — which is we promise people we’re going to deliver long-lasting, leak-free roofs — we can’t do it without you folks, and you do a fantastic job for us.”

Sustainability continues to be an important topic in the roofing industry, and Bi-State Roof Systems from Valley Park, Mo. and Noorda BEC/Flynn of Salt Lake City exemplified how roofs can contribute to the environment with their projects. Bi-State installed a roofing and waterproofing system for Centene Plaza in St. Louis that separates 28 floors with four separate green roof sections, while the work Noodra BEC/Flynn completed on the Salt Lake City Airport is in the process of being Gold Certified by the USGBC LEED program.

Among the low slope – new construction projects recognized this year is the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, completed by Eberhard Southwest Roofing. The new roof for the 1.8 million-square-foot arena required 325,000 square feet of PVC membrane for the new roof, and the contractor used GPS coordinates to create two glowing Allegiant roof logos. Roofing professionals can check it out for themselves when they head to the International Roofing Expo this August.

Some projects, like Springer-Peterson Roofing installing 125,000 square feet on the Publix Corporate Headquarters’ original Hutto TX Roof building and 62,000 square feet on its new expansion, fell into multiple categories, though they were recognized for the primary work completed.

“We at Springer-Peterson are honored to be included with the amazing roofs that are the winners here. Thanks to Sarnafil and congratulations to all of the winners,” wrote Cam Ruby, operations manager at Springer-Peterson.

Below is a full list of the winners. In addition, all of the winners will be showcased for the next year on an interactive microsite that provides photos, video and details about each project. Click here to visit the site.
