BriggsAmasco wins coveted training award at Roofing Awards 2012

‘Along with our prestigious Roofing award at the Construction News Specialist Awards 2012, this award is testament to our commitment to training of our staff and operatives,’ commented BriggsAmasco Managing Director Dave Maginnis.

On announcing the award – formally recognised by CITB-ConstructionSkills – the judges praised the company’s approach. ‘Training is an everyday part of this organisation’s ethos, but they have gone further and built a dedicated training room for not only themselves but other trade associations and organisations to use to train other contractors extending the benefit of training to all in the roofing sector.’

In the last 12 months alone, an impressive 504 man days have been allocated to individual staff and operative training both on site and at the company’s dedicated training centre. The training centre at the head office in the West Midlands offers up to date classroom facilities and further areas with training rigs for hands on learning of roofing skills. The company has an active policy of promotion from within, and supports employees in vocational and educational training.

The Roofing Awards have now entered their seventh year and this year was hosted by TV presenter Matt Allwright. Formerly the NFRC Awards, they have become an industry-wide competition that recognise and reward outstanding standards of workmanship and safety within the roofing industry.
