Client: Seven Seas Water Company for WAPA, St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
Project: St. Thomas Emergency Water Project
Scope: Called upon to assist with the critical water crisis in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, EXCEL-SUN Constructors installed 15 sea water reverse osmosis desalinization and multi-media filtration units - each housed in 40 foot containers, associated piping, and equipment to supply the island with urgently needed drinking water after the Virgin Islands Water & Power Authority’s systems failed just before the height of tourist season and the Christmas holidays. The project was completed without a single leak, in record time, and most importantly, without a single safety incident!
Client: Duke University
Project: New construction of Arts facility for Duke University
Duke University is an internationally recognized private research institution located in Durham, North Carolina. Founded in 1838 and with a campus spanning over 8,600 acres, this abundance of land was a boon to the arts programs at Duke University.
CFE, Inc. (a division of Evans Roofing Company, Inc.), a national leader in the roofing industry, was retained to complete a complicated roofing project at the newly constructed Arts Center. Skanska USA was the GC/CM on record for the project and selected CFE, Inc. based on their record for safety and quality.
The Duke University New Arts Center was designed by the architecture firm of William Rawn Associates, Architects, Inc. of Boston, Massachusetts. The firm wanted to compliment the adjacent Nasher Museum of Art with the design of the new structure. As for the roofing portion of the structure, Sika Sarnafil G4-10 roofing membrane was selected because of energy savings and performance history. CFE, Inc. has enjoyed a 30 year history installing Sika Sarnafil roofing membranes. CFE, Inc. field associates prefer working with Sika Sarnafil for ease in flexibility and weldability during installations.
Client: University of Montana
Project: Payne Family Native American Center
Jackson completed the 30,000 square foot $6.6 million LEED project on the University of Montana campus in March, 2010. The exterior structure is a twelve-sided dodecagon, which represents the twelve tribes of Montana. Seven Native gardens were placed throughout the site, representing each of the reservations in the State. The building is the first LEED registered project on campus. Green building strategies were implemented throughout the building process reducing the structure's environmental impact.
The Payne Family Native American Center is the first facility in the nation built expressly to accommodate a Department of Native American Studies, American Indian Student Services, and the Tribal Liaison, positioning the University to continue its pursuit of excellence in Native American education. UM is a regional and national leader in nine different disciplines and areas—a testament to its commitment to provide a high quality, comprehensive set of offerings in Native American education. The building was given the last, prime piece of land on the campus oval—a focal point for the campus—underscoring its importance and the strong support of the UM administration. Fittingly, it is the site of an historic Salish Indian encampment, and the building is designed to reflect that legacy as well as the heritage and cultures of all Montana tribes.
