BriggsAmasco was among the winners at the 2020 National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) awards thanks to its exceptional waterproofing work on a state-of-the-art sports centre.
The company took the honours in the contest’s Bituminous Hot Applied Liquid Waterproofing category. It followed Briggs’ installation of waterproofing and finishes across a 3,500m2 area at Brighton College’s new sports and science centre. The multi-application project, carried out in 2019, included providing a watertight seal for a main roof, winter garden and car park. The £38m centre will provide a world-class training environment for students, making a transformational difference to school life for generations to come.
Speaking of the company’s award, Dave Maginnis, Managing Director at BriggsAmasco, said: “This is brilliant news. The NFRC awards are acclaimed throughout the roofing industry and remain an annual highlight. We were up against some incredibly tough competition from across the country. To have triumphed above all-comers in a very competitive category speaks volumes for the skills of our installation team. Their experience and dedication, along with the exceptional hard work from everyone across all levels of BriggsAmasco’s business, are what makes this company great. I thank every one of you for ensuring our name is perpetually associated with quality and success.”
BriggsAmasco is to be awarded with a trophy commemorating its NFRC success. Dave Maginnis said he hoped the award would lead to further recognition later this year. “We are proud of our everyday achievements, so to have them verified by independent experts is particularly gratifying. I’m hope this won’t be our only cause for celebration as 2021 progresses.”
The diligence and expertise displayed by the UK’s leading national commercial roofing company, BriggsAmasco, has earned the company an IKO Contractor Recognition Award.
The contest, which is open to contractors nationwide, recognises ‘astonishing’ projects and excellent workmanship. BriggsAmasco’s award was due to roof waterproofing work carried out at Brighton College, and a voluntary programme it completed at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey. As well as winning a trophy, the company is now in the running for IKO’s Contractor of the Year Award.
Dave Maginnis, Managing Director at BriggsAmasco, said: “This is magnificent news. The award is testament to our brilliant onsite engineers and the talents of everyone who makes a day-to-day contribution to the company’s success. We are one very proud team.”
IKO judges praised BriggsAmasco for the ‘excellent’ quality of its work at Brighton College. The project, designed by award-winning Dutch architect, OMA, involved the supply and installation of waterproofing and finishes to a new sports and science facility. The £38m state-of-the-art centre will provide a world-class training environment, making a transformational difference to school life for generations to come.
BriggsAmasco was also commended for its voluntary work, as well as its ‘approach to training, safety and sustainability’ at Frimley Park Hospital. Working in conjunction with other trades, the community project saw Briggs’ staff toiling during their free time to help transform the hospital’s gardens. Overall, judges proclaimed BriggsAmasco’s award entry as ‘high-quality’ and ‘compelling’.
The inaugural IKO Contractor Awards, during which the overall winner will be announced, is due to take place in London next year.
Dave Maginnis added: “I’d like to say a personal ‘thank you’ to our staff, all of whom have contributed to this fantastic achievement. Praise also for IKO. The awards are a brilliant initiative and do much to publicise the wonderful work carried out by roofing contractors throughout the UK.”
The Annual MasticAsphalt awards was held on 14th June at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London, where the guest speaker was the six-time world snooker champion Steve Davis.
Kris Bryan from our Birmingham branch brought home the Outstanding Mastic Asphalt Project over 200m2 for completion of an impressive £550,000 car park waterproofing project at the Jaguar Land Rover Manufacturing Centre in Whitley, Coventry.

The leading commercial roofing contractor triumphed in the Liquid Applied Waterproofing category in a nationwide contest designed to celebrate ‘roofing excellence in Scotland’. Judges, who included Ian McKee, Managing Director of GLM, one of the country’s leading design and project management consultancies, praised BriggsAmasco’s delivery of a multi-roof waterproof system at Marischal Square in Aberdeen, calling it an ‘excellent looking job’. The project formed part of a £107m scheme to transform Aberdeen city centre into a ‘vibrant’ mixed-use quarter featuring seven restaurants, a 126-room hotel and two office buildings; the recipients of BriggsAmasco’s award-winning waterproofing system.
David Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted with the award. NRFC is the UK’s largest roofing trade association, and its awards are much valued throughout the industry. Our success is testament to the effort and skills of our entire team. Marischal Square provides an excellent example of how BriggsAmasco is able to successfully deliver roofing projects regardless of size or complexity. We thank NFRC’s judges for their kind words in support of our entry.”
