At the new 5 Broadgate development in the heart of London’s Square Mile on the site of 4 and 6 Broadgate, BriggsAmasco successfully installed over 11,000 m2 of waterproofing and roofing systems. BriggsAmasco had to provide a successful and innovating working arrangement that allowed them to complete the work with minimal disruption within the three month deadline during the coldest and wettest time of the year.
“BriggsAmasco provided a perfect product at 5 Broadgate, their management team from the outset provided excellent service, both on and off site. This covered early technical and product advise to assist the design team on interfaces, to excellent on site delivery of the works. Their management is very honest and proactive in all respects. Their overall performance has been exemplar with quality of service, programme performance, quality of workmanship and safety, whilst offering and maintaining value for money.”
At the £750 million Birmingham Gateway project, the 1960s New Street railway station was being transformed into a 21st century transport hub. Appointed by Network Rail in 2008, management contractor Mace turned to BriggsAmasco for the design, supply and installation of over 24,000m2 of waterproofing and roofing systems across the site.
“At such a challenging construction site, it’s vital to develop integrated working partnerships with specialist sub-contractors such as BriggsAmasco. “They work closely with us and have continually demonstrated best working practices, design flexibility and high standards of health and safety to ensure every roofing element is delivered in line with our tight construction programme.”
Completing the project to the highest standard within a strict deadline budget, the company received high commendation from Paul Sales, Senior Project Manager:
“I would like to thank you and your team and the way they responded to the very short deadlines to complete the work at Southampton General Hospital. From the outset you moved very quickly to get the work started. It was vital we had the spaces back in time and the team delivered this for us on time and within budget.”
Paul also reserved special praise for two members of the BriggsAmasco team, who ensured the time-sensitive project remained on schedule and on budget.
“Steve Chambers was excellent in working through the early teething problems you can expect when work starts on a new site to keep on programme. The information and assistance to maintain cost control and keep within the project budget despite unforeseen problems was also excellent.”
“The team on the ground with Tony Ebong worked very hard and long hours to keep the work on programme despite interruptions from abandoned cars in work bays and the odd helicopter arriving.”

Thanking BriggsAmasco for the company’s hard work, NPS Group’s Project Manager Ian Longhorn said:
“All the schemes had been completed on programme and on budget with the works undertaken safely and to a high standard. Thank you for your efforts in managing and organising these works effectively and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”
During the internal and external refurbishment of the McDonald’s restaurant, Briggs Amasco was invited to inspect the roof and carry out vital repairs before the major new facelift begin. Whilst upgrading the roof, it was vital that BriggsAmasco caused minimal disruption, completed the work to a high standard and delivered the project within a strict timeframe.
“BriggsAmasco has done a great job,” said Mark Webster, Business Manager at McDonald’s Monifieth. “The team were very professional and left the working area clean and tidy and caused minimal if any disruption to the restaurant operations.”
Set to reopen in October 2012, the stylish restaurant will soon benefit from a modern décor, more comfortable seats and a top quality roofing application by the UK’s leading industrial and commercial roofing company.
Senior Project Manager at McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd, Don Jolly, has worked with BriggsAmasco on a number of roofing and waterproofing projects. At the McDonald’s annual department meeting, Don was delighted to receive the ‘Constructing Excellence’ Award for 2011 and was quick to thank BriggsAmasco for its contribution.
“I would like to thank you all for your support, guidance and ‘can do’ attitude throughout 2011 and in past years. Without a solid team nothing can be achieved,” commented Don. “Here’s to 2012 and beyond.”
