Sika Sarnafil Awards D. C. Taylor Co. 3rd Place Honor

February 22, 2018

D. C. Taylor Co. is honored that its project for Oracle in Redwood Shores, CA, has earned third place in the low slope-reroofing category of Sika Sarnafil’s 2017 Project of the Year competition. Sika Sarnafil, based in Canton, MA, is a worldwide market leader in thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes. Awards were presented at the Project of the Year Awards Dinner on February 5, 2018, in conjunction with this year’s International Roofing Expo (IRE) in New Orleans. Raymundo Jimenez, D. C. Taylor Co.’s Service/Construction Manager and Safety Technician, was present to accept the award.

When the roofs at 100 and 200 Oracle Parkway reached the end of their service life, D. C. Taylor Co. was brought in to reroof the 8- and 12-story facilities on Oracle’s Redwood Shores, CA, campus in May 2017. The project spanned more than three months and totaled 40,000 square feet.

Installing an adhered system on a multi-story building can be a challenge due to the wind and the size of the single-ply membrane sheet. Limited crane setup and the removal of existing ballast (2-inch gravel rock ballast and 12- by 12-inch concrete pavers) added to the project complexity. “Each entry is judged on project complexity, design uniqueness, craftsmanship, and creative problem solving. We salute the winners for their dedication to the roofing industry and installation excellence,” says Brian J. Whelan, Sika Sarnafil’s Executive Vice President.

“D. C. Taylor Co. has been installing Sika Sarnafil roofs since the 1970s,” says Brent Taylor, President, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, IA. “We’re very honored to be recognized for the outstanding work of our Concord, CA, team, by a company we hold in such high esteem.”
