In what was a major evening of success for BriggsAmasco, the company’s waterproofing applications at Justice Mill and Raigmore Hospital were selected as the best projects completed in the last twelve months in the Sustainability and Reinforced Bituminous Membrane categories.
With environmental considerations at the forefront of the challenging architectural design at Justice Mill, the hot-melt roofing system had to provide more than just traditional protection from rainwater. BriggsAmasco also overcame several challenges caused by the roof’s terracing and structure, completing the waterproofing application of seventeen different areas of a multi-level terraced roof.
‘We were delighted to have won this award and have our approach to sustainability recognised’ said Tony Lawther, Operations Director of BriggsAmasco. ‘Our company has led the way in helping to make the roofing industry more green and sustainable and this award is testament to that’.
At Raigmore Hospital, BriggsAmasco utilised high-performance materials, outstanding workmanship and the company’s expertise during the application of 1,200m2 of 5mm thick IKO Mach One bituminous membrane. Completing the waterproofing and roofing system within a challenging eight week time frame, the company also caused minimal disruption to the hospital staff below.
BriggsAmasco was also a finalist in the Safety, Health and Environment Award, and was nominated twice in the Single Ply category for the company’s projects at Bridge of Don Academy and Riverbank Primary School, recognising delivery of some of the industry’s most successful waterproofing applications this year.
The awards were organised and held by the NFRC at the Thistle Glasgow Hotel. The event, sponsored by Cupa Natural Slate, saw some fifteen roofing contractors from across Scotland hoping to win in a range of categories that included Vertical Cladding, Roof Slating and Liquid Applied Waterproofing.
Accepting the awards are Graeme Douglas IKO, Steve Adams Manager Aberdeen, Roger Welsh Manager Glasgow, Tony Lawther Operations Manager & Steve Lamb BDM Scotland.
