Golden opportunities

NRCA recognizes outstanding roofing projects with its Gold Circle Awards

Every year since 1995, NRCA has recognized outstanding contributions to the roofing industry by honoring NRCA members who have met these standards of achievement in four categories: outstanding workmanship, innovative solutions, service to the community and service to the industry.

This year was no different as standout NRCA members received the 2005 Gold Circle Awards at NRCA's 118th Annual Convention in Orlando. Their hard work and well-deserved rewards reflected challenging projects, innovative solutions and community awareness. Following are descriptions of the winning projects.

Gold Circle Award category: Outstanding workmanship—low slope
Recipient: D.C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Project: Cargill Oilseed, Minneapolis
Roof system types: Cold-applied liquid waterproofing membrane system

The Cargill Oilseed facility operates 24 hours per day, seven days per week. So when the facility needed a new roof because of continuing leaks, the production schedule was a significant concern.
