Looking back at past projects, the University of New Haven-affiliated Engineering & Science University Magnet School (ESUMS), is one that stands out. This school is the first of its kind for West Haven, CT students and focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) offering state-of-the-art laboratories for the students through the partnership with UNH. The $85 million school is the 38th built or rehabilitated under the $1.7 billion school construction program that began in 1995. Completed this past fall, the new ESMUS is five stories and 122,000 square feet.

With a location near the job site, Kenseal Construction Products was a convenient and reliable supplier for this large job. Kenseal partnered with three valued customers on various stages of this project:

  1. The Beginning of Construction – Kenseal Sales Representative, John Shugrue, worked closely with the Universal Foundation team on the below grade waterproofing. He visited the job site with the manufacturer representative to provide
    technical assistance throughout the project. Universal Foundation used GCP Applied Technologies’ Preprufe® 300R, Preprufe® Tape, Bituthene® 3000 for the job, all supplied by Kenseal.
  2. On to the Glass –  Following completion of the waterproofing, Kenseal partnered with Massey’s Plate Glass and Aluminum for the glazing of this project. This portion called for Dow Corning 795 and Dow Corning 983 all supplied by Kenseal with the help of veteran sales representative, Liam McGowan.
  3. Finishing Touches – All Panel Systems rounded out this project applying Henry’s Air-Bloc® 32 MR.

Kenseal prides itself on carrying the leading specialty construction products. Partnerships with the top manufacturers in the industry and 13 locations along the east coast make this possible. Throughout the construction of ESUMS, the Kenseal Connecticut team collaborated with their counterparts in Kenseal Boston to ensure product was available and delivered on time. Access to two fully stocked warehouses, made this project run efficiently and smoothly. Remember Kenseal is your partner from the ground up!
