Arbor Row

Arbor Row is poised to transform a row of suburban office buildings into a mix of residential, office, hotel and retail space in Tyson’s Corner.

The office and residential areas will be connected through a series of terraced open areas, including walking paths, sculptures, fountains, and lawn areas all within close proximity to the Tysons Central 123 Metro Station. The end result will be a live, work, play, shop and stay environment.

The Renwick Hotel

Where the energy and soul of old New York is restored. That’s the tagline of a new artful luxury hotel in Midtown New York City. What was once home to working artist studios and inspired lofts has become one of Manhattan’s most unique and visually compelling hotels – The Renwick. The loft-style room hotel takes its name from James Renwick, Jr., the highly acclaimed architect best known for his design of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Expected to open in 2015, Kenseal Construction Products has had the opportunity to supply specialty materials for this project. Our New York team has a strong relationship with, Laticrete, the premier manufacturer of ceramic tile and stone installation systems. Kenseal supplied innovative Laticrete products for 226 bathrooms, measuring a total of 642,000 square feet. The products used include:

Laticrete Hydro Ban® – a thin, load bearing waterproofing/crack isolation membrane that DOES NOT require the use of fabric, even in coves or corners.

Laticrete Mastic – a non-flammable, ready to use latex adhesive designed for interior installations of ceramic tile and natural stone on both floors and walls.

Laticrete SpectraLOCK® –  stainproof, color uniform and grout.

Cold Temperatures? Call Kenseal!

Kenseal Construction Products prides itself on finding unique and innovative ways to solve your greatest project challenges. With the record snowfall and consistently low temperatures in the Boston area this past winter, construction was no easy task and in many cases, not possible. In those cold and icy conditions, you need a distributor that knows the ins and outs of the industry to keep you working.

Kenseal’s highly trained sales team helped a valued customer find a solution to the challenge of applying an air and vapor barrier in freezing temperatures. Jeff King, Kenseal senior sales representative, proposed the use of a low temperature self adhering permeable membrane, manufactured by the Henry Company, for use on the winter job site. Kenseal supplied 80,000 square feet of this air barrier allowing our customer to work through the winter and complete their job on schedule.

Products Used on the Job:

 

Henry Blueskin VP160

Henry 571 Blueskin Primer

Henry 925 Sealant

The Bradley Project

Just steps from the Metro lines in Old Town Alexandria, The Bradley Apartments are well connected to the metro DC area. This new residential building features gourmet kitchens and oversized balconies.

During construction of The Bradley, storage space was very limited at the project site which caused a great challenge for a valued Kenseal customer, JD Long Masonry. Our customer did not have room to put a silo on site and needed to use 80lb bags of colored mortar. With a location in near proximity to the project and multiple delivery vehicles, Kenseal was able to step up and help our customer. We made frequent deliveries to the job site to keep production moving smoothly.

The project also called for the use of Roxul Cavity® Rock MD 2”. The product was subject to a 6-8 week lead time. In order to ensure consistent availability for the project, Kenseal stored over 40,000 square feet of Roxul Cavity® Rock MD 2” and delivered the material to the job site when needed. Our customer was very happy with our attentive and timely service!

“Kenseal is a tremendous help. They delivered everything on time and as promised,” says Jack Victor from JD Long Masonry. “We are always pleased with Kenseal’s service – they go above and beyond.”

Taking the Lead in the Industry

Clark Construction recently reached out to Kenseal Construction Products for help in securing specialty construction materials for a unique project – training mock-ups for new and current Clark Construction employees and subcontractors.

Superintendent John Rivera pulled a team together to create two 5ft by 5ft mock-up structures. These ‘mini buildings’ exemplify everything from curb transitions to penthouses on a much smaller scale. So why is he doing this? To train Clark employees and subcontractors.

“We are taking the lead in the industry,” say John. “Training our employees on these replicas gives them the knowledge to identify potential problem areas while out in the field and minimizes the risk of having complications in construction.”

The ultimate goal upon completion of the mock-ups is to host orientation classes throughout the year. The classes will focus on highlighting preventative measures that can be taken to reduce construction incidents and the replica buildings will provide an opportunity for hands-on learning.

“We are excited to provide this service which will ultimately save our team production time and money,” explains John.

Paul Pavlik, Kenseal Sales Representative, helped Clark Construction acquire specialty construction materials to make this project possible. Kenseal is proud to support and further education in the construction industry!
