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.”
Creativity, initiative and collaboration win coveted international award for young roofers
Ben Revitt of our Birmingham branch represented the UK in the World Championships for Young Roofers in Warsaw last month, with Jordan Lane of Lane Roofing. They were mentored by Gary Walpole, SPRA Training Manager.
Using their own creativity and initiative with a range of roofing products, the duo worked together to win the prestigious President’s Prize for Innovation in the waterproofing category.
The three day Championships are organised by the International Federation of Roofing Contractors (IFD) and attract competitors from around the world. They are aimed at creating a common international message to promote the standards of skilled young roofers, raise the profile of on the job training and increase respect for the technical skills required in the roofing trade. Four young roofers formed Team GB to represent waterproofing and pitched roofing disciplines.
BriggsAmasco was proud to sponsor the UK entry and as Livia Williams, head of training at the NFRC, said in the RCI, “We couldn’t be more proud of Team GB’s performance. Our young roofers displayed an exceptional level of skill, workmanship and pride in their work over the three days, and at such a high standard, it was no easy task for the judges to decide.”
