The NFRC announced the winners at an


awards luncheon presented by TV broadcaster Carol Smillie on Friday 15 November at The Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow. Judged by an independent expert panel,

Ashton’s impressive work on the building’s unique multifaceted roof – which having endured over 40 years of Glasgow’s inclement

arket-leading single ply roofing manufacturer Sika Sarnafil and leading Glasgow-based contractor

weather was starting to fail and allow continual water ingress – secured their place as one of 16 category winners. Tasked with installing a new

waterproofing system, as well as upgrading the thermal value of the roof and improving roof access for safe and easy future maintenance, Ashton opted for a mechanically fixed Sarnafil system. S327-15EL in lead grey was specified due to its ease and speed of installation and the fact that it was able to be fixed onto the existing roof decking.

A welcoming entrance to new wildlife centre

Creating a warm welcome to all visitors to the Staffordshire Wildlife Trusts’ new Wolseley Centre, two TORMAX automatic single sliding doors work in tandem to create a spacious lobby area that helps ensure a clear through-flow of pedestrians whilst also reducing heat-loss from the building. Enhancing the internal ambience, natural light floods through the glass doors whilst an attractive frosted wildlife manifestation to the external door complements the aesthetics of the facade. Delivering exceptional reliability, the doors are powered by two powerful TORMAX Windrive 2201 operators which can each drive a single door leaf of up to 120kg or a double set of doors weighing up to 100kg per leaf. Tested to well in excess of current industry requirements of one million cycles, Windrive operators can be found installed in demanding locations throughout the world. The Windrive 2201 operators are a cost-effective option, are quick and simple to install and are also easy for National Trust staff to adjust to meet the demands of the day.
