A Global Landmark

Herzog & de Meuron have designed an iconic tower in the New York skyline – 56 Leonard. Consisting of 145 spatially innovative homes visibly stacked upon one another to create a cascading 60-story structure, this new luxury building is said to be a Global Landmark. When complete later this year, the jenga-like structure will rise to 821 feet making it stand out in a neighborhood largely full of industrial warehouses and converted factories. 56 Leonard can be found in the highly desirable neighborhood of Tribeca and is one of the most highly anticipated condo buildings in New York City. Only one penthouse is still on the market – all other living units ranging from $2.975 million to $47 million (the most expensive residential property ever sold below Midtown Manhattan) are already in contract.2015-04-28-12.42.442-576x1024

Construction of Capitol Towers

The Kenseal Construction Products team is proud of our unique hands on approach. We make it a top priority to truly partner with our customers in order to fully understand their needs and provide exceptional service. This company value was exemplified in a recent project – the Capitol Towers in North Carolina.

Bringing nearly 500,000 square feet of premier office and retail space to Charlotte, the Capitol Towers will be a staple in the ongoing urbanization of the prestigious SouthPark neighborhood. Located just five minutes from the airport and Charlotte’s Central Business District, the two 10-story buildings will provide all of the amenities 21st-century businesses and residents desire.

IMG_2046Kenseal’s sales team in Charlotte is working with two valued customers on the construction of the Towers. The team has developed strong relationships with these customers to get them what they need, when they need it. In one instance, our customer reached out to us with a dilemma. A major storm was expected to roll in that afternoon and our customer needed material to backfill a wall before the rain arrived. Our flexible team rearranged the delivery schedule and delivered TREMproof 250 GC to the jobsite in order to accommodate the customer.

“James Duncan (Kenseal Sales and Operations Coordinator) has made sure I have had what I’ve needed to stay ahead of the product schedule,” says Lynn Andreason, Queen City Waterproofing. “Kenseal outperforms the other distributors everyday.”

We are proud to provide this level of service and it doesn’t end there. Our knowledgeable team always helps our customers plan for future material needs, but we understand that these needs are not always predictable. With 13 stocking locations across the east coast and access to the top-tier vendors, we strive to provide specialty construction products materials as quickly as possible.

“Becca Sorensen (Kenseal Inside Sales Representative) has delivered material to us when we are in a bind – all after working hours!” says Brad Gabardini, NC Interiors Contracting.

We look forward to continuing to build our relationships with our valued customers on the Capitol Towers project!

A Flexible Team With The Right Connections

The Kenseal Construction Products team provides a unique hands-on approach. For over 35 years, we’ve made it our top priority to truly understand our customers’ needs so that we can partner with them to deliver the right solutions for their projects, even the most difficult ones!

Recently, Kenseal teamed up with a valued customer, James W. Ancel, Inc., on a challenging waterproofing project for the Kirk Bus Depot. The two-phase project will replace the 66-year-old Kirk Facility with two new buildings: a maintenance building and a transportation and storage building. Initially, our customer ordered Grace Preprufe® 200 for installation of the vapor barrier under the concrete footings, grade beams and slab. However, prior to installation, the building owners changed the product spec from the Preprufe® 200 to Preprufe® 300R. Kevin Kulisiewicz, Sales & Operations Coordinator, Nick Kazimer, Inside Sales Representative, and the rest of the Kenseal team worked quickly to supply our customer with the new product without delay. Our team also partnered with the WR Grace Manufacturing Representatives to ensure a smooth transition. After the winter, our valued customer moved to a new product with the same time-tested and proven attributes of the over 20 year old Preprufe® technology, Preprufe® 300R Plus. This newer product is release liner free making it easier and faster to install material with less waste on the job site and also offers an enhanced robust adhesive to adhesive seam overlap.

“Kevin and Kenseal have been exceptionally great to deal with. Even with the changes, he has made every effort to get us the products in a timely fashion,” says Art Barge, Founder and President, James W. Ancel, Inc. “We are now moving forward at a rapid pace to install the Preprufe 300R system and converting to the Preprufe 300R Plus in over 100,000 square feet of slab area… Again I want to thank Kevin, Nick and the whole Kenseal team for their help in getting the materials as we needed to keep the project moving.”

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.”
