BriggsAmasco Waterproofing Design and Installation Excellence Earns Industry Accolade

BriggsAmasco’s delivery of an innovative waterproof system for a Retailer Distribution Centre has been ‘Highly Commended’ in the Liquid Roofing category at this year’s LRWA Awards.

The accolade was announced at a gala presentation evening held on behalf of awards nominees and LWRA members at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.

BriggsAmasco’s Highly Commended award, in conjunction with IKO, was for work carried out at £400 million Retailer Distribution Centre in Swindon. The building has a footprint in the region of 166,000m2 – the equivalent of six-and-a-half football pitches – making it the second-largest warehouse building of its type in the UK. BriggsAmasco was selected to design and install an inverted waterproof system for the warehouse’s 4,700m2 roof.

With support from IKO, the huge programme was an exemplar of waterproofing excellence. This was despite Briggs’ installation teams having to contend with challenges including travel restrictions and material shortages caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking of the company’s award, Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Managing Director said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for all BriggsAmasco staff involved with the Retailer Distribution Centre project. The waterproofing programme was carried out in incredibly challenging circumstances. With the support of IKO, the project’s superb completion was a triumph of design and high-grade workmanship. Congratulations to all for the programme’s exceptional outcome.”
