The Joseph Black Building at the King’s Buildings Campus at the University of Edinburgh most recently won the Single Ply Roofing category at the NFRC National Roofing Awards. The refurbishment was recognised for its outstanding workmanship, as well as the aesthetic qualities of the roof.
Sarnafil Membrane S327-15EL in patina green was installed, as the planners stipulated that the product must be in-keeping with the rest of the copper roofs on the listed building.
Sika Sarnafil was specified to meet the complex acoustic requirements on the Chichester Festival Theatre roof.
Described by the judges as a a true master-class in how to restore an existing iconic building, the refurbishment picked up the Building of the Year award, in addition to the Sustainability Award and the Conservation Award.
A further prize winning project, the £31 million Redcar Leisure and Community Centre, won the Regeneration Award at the RICS North East Awards. The project was part of the local council’s aim to get more people involved in sport and leisure in the area.
The community centre was the first ever large-scale use of Sika Sarnafil’s new Self Adhered Membrane. Using a ballasted version of the product (Sarnafil G476-SA), the contractor, M and C Roofing, stated how quickly and easily it went down over the 800sq m area.
Charles Pierce, National Sales Manager at Sika Sarnafil said: 2015 has been a great year for us thus far, with our products showcased across some really exciting and innovative projects.
We’re proud to develop and supply a range of roofing products that help the architect realise their vision and the contractor achieve a top quality installation for the client.
