The Hilton Baltimore Convention Center Hotel was built completely by union contractors. Western Specialty Contractors was selected to apply the below grade waterproofing membrane. The general contractor was very pleased with the quality of Western’s work and in the way the employees conducted themselves on the job site. This gave Western the opportunity to negotiate additional work items.
Western received change orders for 20,000 square feet of hot applied waterproofing on the plaza area and to install stainless steel through wall flashing at the perimeter of the building. The change orders doubled the size of the contract.
Two Western employees were nominated and won awards for craftsmenship from the mayor of Baltimore.
