Double award win for Sika Sarnafil projects at SPRA Awards 2019

have triumphed at this year’s Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA) Awards. The awards, which recognise best practice


within the single ply roofing industry, saw Exeter-based Progressive Systems Ltd take home the Best Safe Working award for their contribution to The Dunes development (Pictured), while Harlow-based Contour Roofing (Essex) Ltd came out top in the Best Sustainability category for their work on the Temple Farm Development. Announced at SPRA’s fifth annual conference and awards ceremony, held at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire on Thursday 13 June, this year’s awards celebrated both people and projects, with prizes taken home across six project categories. Progressive’s single ply installation at

The Dunes, a stunning new beachfront development in Perranporth, Cornwall, was

praised by SPRA for the safety measures taken amidst challenging weather conditions. Progressive’s Levi Stephens, dedicated contracts manager for the project, comments on the win: “We’re over the moon to have been recognised for our strong commitment to workforce safety in this year’s SPRA Awards. Installing single ply on this job was challenging, not only due to having a large area to cover, but also due to disruption caused by the coastal climate. With strong winds and driving rain, we had to ensure our workers’ complete safety was taken into account. However, by combining a systematic

arket-leading single ply roofing manufacturer Sika Sarnafil and two of its Registered Contractors

and thorough coverage of each roof block, high quality products and the expertise of both our roofers and Sika Sarnafil’s technicians, the roofing installation was finished on time and within budget.” Temple Farm Development, a huge multi-

roof project that saw a 34-hectare scrapyard transformed into new national headquarters for the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Britain, also impressed at the awards. SPRA said the project was a clear winner in its category for achieving a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating upon completion and demonstrating a sustainable approach from the outset. Additional praise was given for the project’s biodiverse green roofing system, designed to boost the local flora and fauna above the Sarnafil membrane, while the contractor was also praised for ensuring the community and environment were respected during installation.
