On Friday 15th June at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London, over 120 of the country’s leading mastic asphalt contractors gathered to recognise and celebrate the industry’s very best projects, companies and innovations. Following successes at this year’s Roofing Awards and Specialist Awards, BriggsAmasco once again came out on top.

BriggsAmasco was recognised for its exceptional standards of waterproofing achieved at the Stanhope Street Regeneration project – the transformation of an urban village by one of the largest property management, development and regeneration companies in the UK, Places for People.

Originally invited to investigate water ingress in and around the communal and private balconies, the company worked with IKO Permanite to produce a specification that would renew the existing waterproofing membrane with a product offering a proven track record and a guarantee to back this up.

Using Permaphalt polymer modified roofing, BriggsAmasco completed the 4000m2 application, as well as a series of associated works on budget, on time and whilst the flats were fully occupied. Having demonstrated excellent communication with tenants and the highest health and safety standards throughout, BriggsAmasco will complete the fourth and final phase of the project in 2013.

Every year the awards are organised and held by MAC, a non-profit making independent body with quality products, design and workmanship as fundamental requirements for its members – more than 90 of the UK’s leading mastic asphalt contractors and manufacturers.
