On Friday 10th June 2011, over 150 of the UK mastic asphalt industry’s key members gathered at London’s One Whitehall Place & Royal Horseguards Hotel for the 2011 MAC Awards. Nominated for the company’s project at King’s Cross Station, BriggsAmasco was once again recognised for delivering one of the industry’s very best projects over the last twelve months.
BriggsAmasco carried out resurfacing works using a mastic asphalt system at KIng’s Cross Station, to improve platforms one to eight during the £500 million station redevelopment. As one of the busiest stations in Europe, planning was imperative in the continued success of the scheme and all works were carefully scheduled to ensure minimal disruption to the station.
Each platform was worked on separately to avoid closure of more than one platform at any one time, allowing station operations to continue relatively unaffected. BriggsAmasco also completed the work at night over a three month period to ensure the station could continue as normal during the day.
The awards were organised and held by MAC, a non-profit making independent body which represents the UK’s top 70 mastic asphalt contractors, as well as the leading manufacturer, Permanite.
