The Future of Engineering Excellence
ALPHA has partnered with Whiting-Turner Construction on the new Herbert Wertheim Laboratory for Engineering Excellence located in Gainesville, Florida. The new engineering facility is a $300 million investment for an 84,000 square feet state-of-the-art research facility located in the heart of the University of Florida campus. ALPHA will perform air barrier , sealants , spray cementitious fireproofing , intumescent fireproofing , and insulation . The research facility is slated to open in late 2019. 
Texas Rangers Up Their Game
The $1.2 billion retractable-roof stadium for the Texas Rangers broke ground in September 2017, with portions of the site already 70-feet deep to make way for the new 41,000-seat stadium offering a new way to experience baseball in Arlington. Located in the center of the Texas Live! entertainment district and nearby to AT&T Stadium, the new Globe Life Field aims to position itself as a new entertainment destination, not just for baseball, but much more. The stadium includes a retractable roof, a single six-acre plane that shields visitors from the Texas heat but also opens to the elements when comfortable.  ALPHA is installing all of the penetration firestop and acoustic penetrations on the stadium for JMEG LLC (electrical, data low voltage and fire alarm contractor), Northstar Fire Protection (fire sprinkler contractor) and TD Industries (plumbing and mechanical contractor). Manhattan Construction is the general contractor on the project that is expected to be open for games in 2020.
Mixed-Use Living Headed to Suburbia
Brasfield & Gorrie has selected ALPHA to install fluid applied air barriers and flashing , below grade waterproofing , clear sealers , and joint sealants on the first phase of the Northwinds Summit project, called 3000 Summit Place. The complex will sit on 24.3 acres north of Atlanta and will include more than 1 million square feet of office space. Alpharetta-based FiberLight is the project’s first tenant, signing a 16,124-square-foot lease, which is expected to be complete in third-quarter 2019. Cooper Carry is the architect for the mixed-use development in Alpharetta, Georgia. Phase I will include 3000 Summit Place and 5000 Summit Place, two office buildings that will span 30,000 square feet and 150,000 square feet, respectively. Other components will include a 125-room hotel, 140 multi-family units, 32 condominiums and 15,000 square feet of restaurant and amenity space.
Showstopper Added to Landmark Towers
Construction is underway on a new 15 story high rise office building in Austin, Texas. The Domain 10 Office Tower is one of four new landmark towers at the north end of Alterra Parkway. With close to 300,000 SF of rent-able office space, the Domain 10’s intriguing architectural form and stunning glass exterior will make it a high-profile presence within the Domain Development. The building has a strong emphasis on connection to the outdoors by incorporating shaded terraces on every floor, aligning the building to ensure unobstructed views of Rock Rose and the adjacent lakeside park.  ALPHA will be installing all the below-grade waterproofing, hot applied waterproofing with rigid insulation and pavers, traffic coatings, fluid applied air barriers, CMU firestopping, expansion joint systems, building and site sealants along with the sprayed insulation for JE Dunn Construction.  ALPHA will also be installing all the fire safing and silicone based firestopping and the exterior glass curtain wall system for Win-Con Enterprises.
