HONOLULU, Hawaii — Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii (CRW) received Top Job of the Year for all its roofing projects completed in 2013 at the annual Roofing Contractors Association of Hawaii (RCAH) Awards Banquet on Jan. 25 at the Halekoa Hotel on Waikiki Beach. CRW’s first place award recognitions were for commercial projects including two downtown Honolulu iconic towers— Alii Place (fluid applied) and Harbor Court (single ply). Two other winning roof projects included Hawaiian Electric Company’s Kahe Power Plant (metal roof), and the townhome association AOAO Palm Villa II (shingle roof) with 42 buildings re-roofed with solar reflective shingles.
These nominations were judged on the basis of safety, project deadlines or unique considerations such as design factors, jobsite conditions, a culturally sensitive job, or a LEED/Green or PV job.
CRW Vice President Larry Young noted that it was a tough competition. “The nominations more than doubled this year, and I’m very proud to be a part of the fast-growing roofing industry” he said. “Challenges have grown as well, as we all work harder to succeed by providing excellent customer service and superior workmanship. RCAH did a fantastic job to recognize the men who spearheaded the actual onsite work. We were proud to be able to place honor where honor is due. Scaling down the glass walls of Ali’i Place is no easy feat — I have much respect for the foreman and their crews whose commitment to excellence in workmanship allows our client’s to rest assured their buildings and tenants are covered!”
CRW was also very happy to see that Honolulu Roofing Company (a strategic alliance) took first-place awards for the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotels’ Louis Vuitton storefront (tile roofing), and a private residence in the category of “fluid applied” roofing for excellent workmanship and dealing with harsh environment conditions.
