The Tulsa office of Western Specialty Contractors was contracted to complete work on the new sky box addition at Chapman Stadium, the University of Tulsa. Western caulked approximately 8,000 lineal feet of control joints and window perimeters. The stadium bowl also had a face lift, adding new seats and cast stone walls which were also caulked. During the project, Western was asked to power wash the existing concrete wall and remove the old paint.
The Chapman Stadium project was fast paced and took a large amount of coordination between the subcontractors and general contractor. The work was completed before the start of the football season.
In 2006, Western Specialty Contractors' Tulsa Branch was selected to install a deck coating system at the Comanche County Courthouse.
The 38,000 square feet of concrete pavement surrounding the court house was in terrible shape. There was a large amount of concrete repair that had been performed by others, prior to the start of Western’s work.
The engineer specified Neo-Guard “Pedi-Guard” as their product of choice for the coating system. As with all coatings, preparation of the substrate is the most important step in producing a durable and long lasting coating system. Western first shot-blasting the entire 38,000 square foot area of the concrete deck. Next the crew routed out and sealed approximately 1,100 linear feet of cracks. Due to the roughness of some sections of the concrete it was necessary to apply an epoxy leveling coat to these areas. Next came the application of the coating and the decorative red band around the perimeter and walking lanes.
Due to the courthouse being occupied and always busy, coordination was a big step of this project. This was one of many quality coating projects that was finished on time and safely by Western’s team of professionals in Oklahoma.
