Flat roofing specialist Bauder was recognised at this year’s UK Roofing Awards, winning two of the prizes on offer for its work on Byker Wall in Newcastle and ROM’s manufacturing facility in Sheffield.
The award winners were announced on May 13th at the Hilton Metropole in London, an event hosted by TV presenter Steph McGovern and overseen by the voice of the National Lottery Alan Dedicoat.
Now in its eleventh year, the Roofing Awards are an industry-wide competition that celebrates outstanding standards of workmanship and safety within the roofing industry. This year the level of competition was particularly high with almost 300 project entries being submitted for the fourteen award categories available.
Bauder’s first win of the night came for its photovoltaic (PV) installation at the landmark, Grade II listed Byker Wall estate, which won the ‘Solar on Roofs’ category. Following on from this success, ROM Ltd was then chosen as the winning project for the ‘Reinforced Bitumen Membranes’ category from a group of four finalists that included two other Bauder projects.
Bauder’s Managing Director, Andrew Mackenzie, expressed his delight with the company’s success at the awards ceremony, “Bauder is always delighted to be recognised by the Roofing Awards, which serve as an industry benchmark for quality and best practice".
