BriggsAmasco’s exemplary delivery of a huge waterproofing programme at London’s historic Battersea Power Station has earned an acclaimed NFRC Roofing Award. The project was announced winner of the contest’s ‘Mastic Asphalt’ category at a ceremony held on Friday, May 12th at InterContinental – The O2 in London.
For phase two of the Battersea Power Station development – one of the largest urban regenerations of its type in Europe – BriggsAmasco’s site operatives installed 45,000m² waterproofing and insulation as part of a challenging, complex multiple application.
Commenting on the award, Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Chairman, said: “This is an excellent achievement. The NFRC awards are revered throughout the industry. Therefore, our scoop of the Mastic Asphalt category for our teams’ outstanding waterproofing work on the Battersea Power Station project is extremely good news.”
Logistically and technically, the Battersea Power Station development proved a true test of BriggsAmasco’s renowned workmanship and project management capabilities. It included designing and installing a unique waterproofing solution comprising of IKO Permapark mastic asphalt and IKO Permatec system for the waterproofing of the main access through the site and above the development’s main energy centre. Believed to be the first time such a system had been trialled in the UK, it provided an effective alternative to a traditional tarmac and concrete solution, which was deemed excessively thick for the task.
Dave Maginnis continued: “The Battersea Power Station development is a landmark project for London. It will help to regenerate a long-overlooked area of the capital. To have played a part in its successful completion further enhances our reputation as a leading specialist of waterproofing and roofing installations for high-profile building projects. Congratulations to all BriggsAmasco employees involved with this iconic project.”
