BriggsAmasco is a dual finalist following the shortlisting of two of its roofing projects at this year’s Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) Awards.

The projects at Everton football stadium, and Sumburgh Head Lighthouse and Visitors Centre have been nominated in the ‘General Work, Development and Hybrid Project of the Year’ category.

At Everton Stadium, which is due to open in 2025 at the former Bramley-Moore dock site on Liverpool’s waterfront, BriggsAmasco operatives overcame challenging conditions to complete a huge multiple roof installation.  Nearly 15,000m2 of mastic asphalt waterproofing was installed across two levels of the 52,000-capacity stadium, along with 5,000m2 of asphalt paving to demarcated roofing areas. The site’s exposed waterfront location meant operatives had to overcome high winds and accommodate a raft of complex roof detailing to complete a project that will herald a new era for the Premier League football club when they take-up residence at the stadium for the start of the 2025/26 season.

For the Sumburgh Head Lighthouse and Visitors Centre project in Shetland, DITT Construction appointed BriggsAmasco to supply a new mastic asphalt roof to the historic site’s engine room. The ‘once-in-a-generation project’ was on behalf of the Shetland Amenity Trust. It meant it was imperative costs were minimised during the roof’s refurbishment, with BriggsAmasco operatives displaying the utmost care, attention and professionalism in carrying out the work whilst the centre’s accommodation blocks were occupied by holidaymakers. The team’s performance at the Sumburgh Head Lighthouse has already earned industry acclaim with victory in the Mastic Asphalt category at this year’s NFRC UK Roofing Awards.

Tony Lawther, managing director, BriggsAmasco said: “The awards nominations are fantastic news. The nominated roofing projects are among the most high-profile we’ve completed in recent years. They’re indicative of our operatives’ ability to carry out a range of roofing disciplines in differing environments and attain the same exceptional performance levels. Congratulations to all involved.”

The MAC Awards attract a wide range of quality entrants from across the UK, thereby fulfilling its remit to promote excellence in construction. This year’s category winners will be announced on Friday, June 7th at a luncheon being held at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London.
