Single ply roofing manufacturer Sika Sarnafil and South West roofing contractor Progressive Systems are celebrating following a win at the Roofing Awards 2019.
The roof of the Dunes – a stunning new beachfront development in Perranporth, Cornwall – came out on top in the Single Ply Roofing category, which was sponsored by EJOT UK.
Hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), TV host Sarah Beeny announced winners at a ceremony on 10 May 2019 at the InterContinental London – The O2.
The awards celebrate the very best in the industry across all roofing disciplines, recognising outstanding workmanship, problem solving, environmental qualities and contribution to the built environment.
Progressive’s impressive work on The Dunes, which was completed in August 2018, secured their place as one of 13 category winners.
The Dunes project also triumphed at the annual RICS Awards 2019: South West, supported by headline sponsor Sika. Coming out top in the Residential Property category, winners were announced at a ceremony on 22 May 2019 at Bristol Marriott Hotel. The development was labelled exceptional by judges, who were impressed by the project’s innovative design, high quality construction and consideration for sustainability.
Working on a site just 10 short metres from the beach, Progressive was tasked with installing a long-lasting roofing system robust enough to withstand the South coast’s often extreme wind and rain, while matching the luxury aesthetic of the build.
Alistair Speirs, Area Technical Manager at Sika, said: “We’re thrilled to see this build excel in the Roofing Awards’ Single Ply Roofing category. The Dunes was a 14-month project challenged with unforgiving coastal weather and high expectations in terms of quality workmanship. However, the combination of Sika products along with the expertise of both the contractors and our technicians involved in the installation resulted in a stunning finish that will keep the residents of The Dunes warm and dry for many years to come.”
