IKO CONTRACTOR RECOGNITION AWARDS
IKO awards celebrate contractors that go the extra mile for quality and engagement.
The IKO Contractor Recognition Awards were originated by the leading roofing, waterproofing and insulation manufacturer with the aim of providing well-earned acclaim for the customers who install its range of watertight products. This feature focuses on the recipients of previous awards and how each one went the extra mile in terms of workmanship, innovation or community engagement in order to secure a project’s exceptional conclusion.
Q1 WINNER – SPV
Project Name: Hilda Besse Building
Project Size: 800m²
Project Materials: IKO Permaphalt Mastic Asphalt System
Project Description: The main challenge to the project was that all 88 roof lights had to be individually built up from scratch. A timber frame was created around each one to incorporate a torch on vapour barrier followed by a 110mm insulation. Every part of the timber frames needed to be prepared with a sheathing felt followed by expanding metal lath
The key to the expert delivery of this project was the preparation and detail work. 120mm of insulation was installed to each and every roof light followed by the 3 layer of asphalt roofing. The asphalt installed to the vertical walls was challenging but expertly installed as per industry guidelines .
Half the roof was protected by an over roof but the other half wasn’t so this was a challenge in regards to delivery and meant the site team needed to move from one area to the other to suit the weather conditions.
Q1 HIGHLY COMMENDED – SHERIFF CONSTRUCTION
Congratulations to Sheriff Construction Ltd, highly commended winners of the IKO Contractor Recognition Award! The quality of the Victoria Way project in Charlton, using IKO products from across our Single Ply, Hot Melt, BUR and Liquids Divisions, was impressive. In addition, their admirable approach to apprenticeships and training, coupled with their support of local charitable causes, made for a compelling submission.
Project Name: Victoria Way, Charlton
Project Size: 3,500m²
Project Materials: Hot Melt, Single Ply, Liquids and Mastic Asphalt
Project Description: Situated within one of London’s upcoming hotspots, this development consists of 11 apartment blocks (providing a collection of brand new 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats which are intended for both private use and housing association residents) plus a new nursery building.
Working across the project since May 2019, Sheriff Construction Ltd has been fulfilling all waterproofing works and roof finishes. This has included IKO hot melt, single ply, liquid and a BUR torch system on cappings.
