Background

Texas A&M University’s state-of-the-art Player Development Center-West Campus in College Station, Texas opened in the summer of 2014. Schulte Roofing® was selected to install the roof for this project as they had previously installed commercial roofs for the general contractor, Manhattan Construction, including the Texas A&M Corps Dorms. The 26,577 square-foot roof installation at the Player Development Center-West Campus was a straightforward project that Schulte Roofing® was more than capable of completing.

Challenges

The main challenges faced by Schulte Roofing® when installing the roof for the Player Development Center-West Campus was a labor shortage and a narrow timeline to complete the project. At the time, a hurricane hit the Gulf Coast and the labor force quickly dwindled.

Solutions

Schulte Roofing® was prepared to handle the depletion of the labor force, as they are financially stable and able to retain quality talent even during a labor shortage. The installation of the high performance thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing proved to be an easy job for Schulte Roofing® and they were able to complete the project in under two weeks, exceeding the expectations of their clients. Even with the tough circumstances of the hurricane aftermath, this project was completed on-time and under budget and ultimately lead to more work from the general contractor, Manhattan Construction, due to the fast turnaround of this large-scale project by Schulte Roofing®.
