BriggsAmasco has scooped a prized industry accolade for its delivery of a first-class roof installation at a world class visitor attraction.

The company was adjudged winner of the Mastic Asphalt category at the esteemed NFRC UK Roofing Awards. BriggsAmasco was awarded for its expert performance at Sumburgh Head Lighthouse and Visitors Centre. The project, which took place in Shetland’s remote, inclement environs, involved supplying the historic site’s engine room with a smart new watertight roof.

Speaking of BriggsAmasco’s latest industry recognition, Tony Lawther, managing director said: “This is a magnificent achievement. The NFRC awards celebrate the very best UK roofing projects and workmanship. For our performance at Sumburgh Head Lighthouse to be judged winner in a strongly-contested category is immensely pleasing. Warmest congratulations to all those involved in the project. You’ve made us all incredibly proud.”

The Sumburgh Head Lighthouse roof installation, on behalf of the Shetland Amenity Trust, was a once-in-a-generation project for BriggsAmasco. Operatives not only had spells of wild and wintry weather to contend with, they had to carry out the work whilst the site’s accommodation blocks and visitor centre remained open. Hence, this mastic asphalt-based refurbishment was as much a triumph of BriggsAmasco’s project management skills in upholding visitor safety, as it was the team’s installation prowess.

Additionally, the Shetland Amenity Trust’s charity status meant BriggsAmasco operatives needed to work at pace to ensure the client’s strict budget was not infringed. Briggs teams delivered on all counts, making it a landmark installation for all involved.

Tony continued: “The Sumburgh Head Lighthouse is definitely one of our more notable projects. It demonstrates that no matter how challenging the conditions, location or installation requirements, our teams have the skills and diligence to deliver what is required. Their talent and professionalism know no bounds.”

BriggsAmasco received its NFRC award at a finalists’ ceremony held at the InterContinental London – The O2. The evening was hosted by comedian, actor and presenter Hal Cruttenden.
