The diligence and expertise displayed by the UK’s leading national commercial roofing company, BriggsAmasco, has earned the company an IKO Contractor Recognition Award.
The contest, which is open to contractors nationwide, recognises ‘astonishing’ projects and excellent workmanship. BriggsAmasco’s award was due to roof waterproofing work carried out at Brighton College, and a voluntary programme it completed at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey. As well as winning a trophy, the company is now in the running for IKO’s Contractor of the Year Award.
Dave Maginnis, Managing Director at BriggsAmasco, said: “This is magnificent news. The award is testament to our brilliant onsite engineers and the talents of everyone who makes a day-to-day contribution to the company’s success. We are one very proud team.”
IKO judges praised BriggsAmasco for the ‘excellent’ quality of its work at Brighton College. The project, designed by award-winning Dutch architect, OMA, involved the supply and installation of waterproofing and finishes to a new sports and science facility. The £38m state-of-the-art centre will provide a world-class training environment, making a transformational difference to school life for generations to come.
BriggsAmasco was also commended for its voluntary work, as well as its ‘approach to training, safety and sustainability’ at Frimley Park Hospital. Working in conjunction with other trades, the community project saw Briggs’ staff toiling during their free time to help transform the hospital’s gardens. Overall, judges proclaimed BriggsAmasco’s award entry as ‘high-quality’ and ‘compelling’.
The inaugural IKO Contractor Awards, during which the overall winner will be announced, is due to take place in London next year.
Dave Maginnis added: “I’d like to say a personal ‘thank you’ to our staff, all of whom have contributed to this fantastic achievement. Praise also for IKO. The awards are a brilliant initiative and do much to publicise the wonderful work carried out by roofing contractors throughout the UK.”
