NAWIC Dallas April Dinner Meeting
April 20, 2015

"Hear first hand what it took to waterproof and re-clad a
10-story apartment building at
the Dallas Theological Seminary"

Presented by:

Robert Riggs, VP for Campus Operations, Dallas Theological Seminary

Tony Childress, P.E. S.E. Owner & Founder of Childress Engineering Services, Inc.

Program Summary:

Our guest speakers will provide a behind-the-scenes look at a recently completed waterproofing and re-cladding project for a 10-story apartment complex on the Dallas Theological Seminary campus. 


Originally built in 2003, the apartment complex began experiencing exterior cladding failure and water leaks almost immediately. After several attempts at a fix, and lengthy arbitration proceedings, the Seminary hired Childress Engineering Services. A creative solution to the problem was developed and after 16 months of exterior demolition and recladding, the building was completed in 2010.


Representatives from both DTS and Childress will share the story and the solution to this multi-million dollar renovation.


Located in the East Dallas Baylor Hospital area, this apartment complex is part of a 16 building, 20-acre campus with more than 555,000 square feet of classroom, library, support, and residential space. With some buildings dating to the 1920's and future renovations beginning this April, there is something of value for everyone at this meeting.
