IKO Polymeric enjoyed a very successful night at this year’s SPRA Awards by winning FIVE awards with their projects demonstrating the best use of Single Ply. Working with DVC Roofing, the company was the winner of Best Detailing Award for their Goosecroft Lane project, a residential building in based Northallerton.
This complex, multi-slope pitched roof is a great example of what can be achieved with good planning and a highly-trained workforce. Aesthetics were the key; therefore every single detail had to be spot on with no tolerance for short cuts.
DVC Roofing’s installation team made sure that every element of the roof build-up is installed as neat as possible to give the roof a crisp and neat finish on the standing seams. Tongue and groove type OSB deck, adhered vapour control layer and insulation coupled with careful loading of boards ensured a consistent bond and provided the roof with a superb finish.
As well as being the winner of the Best Detailing category, IKO Polymeric was also highly commended in 4 other award categories: Best Innovation with Hinkley Point C Power Station Temporary Accommodation, Best Refurbishment and Best Sustainability (two different awards) with North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC) and finally Best Safe Working with Rock House Sen School.
IKO Armourplan was the choice of single ply membrane for all these winning projects and ticked so many different boxes to match the specific requirements of each project.
For the Hinkley Point C Power Station, IKO Polymeric worked with Marksman Roofing to produce prefabricated roofing sheets to waterproof a 10,000m2 roof. Forty-four identical roof modules were manufactured offsite with Armourplan PSG membrane and shipped to the site for final installation. The modular manufacture methods provided up to 50% reduction in the schedule compared to traditional build, assured levels of quality and minimal environmental impact.
Working with Delomac Roofing, IKO Polymeric also showed great initiative with the refurbishment of NHDC Offices. The ‘Zero Defects on Handover’ target was achieved through successful supply chain cooperation and potential waste to landfill has been dramatically reduced by retaining the existing deck and using woodwool as a contributor to the required thermal upgrade.
And lastly, thanks to NRA Roofing’s extra care and attention to Health & Safety issues during the installation of the pitched roof at Rock House SEN School, IKO Polymeric closed the night with 5 awards to complete a lovely evening at the SPRA 2018 Awards.
