To say Chamberlin’s scope of work on the campus covered a lot of ground is an understatement. When all was said and done, Chamberlin crews sprayed 320,000 square feet of air barrier, laid 215,000 square feet of hot fluid waterproofing, applied 200,000 linear feet of sealants and coated the facilities with 125,000 square feet of sealer. The team also installed water repellants, firestopping, expansion joints, sheet metal flashing and pavers. Whew! That's a mouthful!
