Sika shortlisted in multiple categories at SPRA Awards

SIKA’s roofing division is celebrating the news that five of its projects have been shortlisted across four categories for the SPRA (Single Ply Roofing Association) Awards.

The business has been nominated in the categories of Best New Build, Best Small Project, Health and Safety Award, and the Sustainability Award.

The Best New Build Award shortlisting concerns Sika’s project at Albion Place, completed alongside Invictus Roofing, along with the Temple Park Crescent new build residential development project in Edinburgh, carried out with Ashton Building Systems. The Temple Park Crescent project featured not only the installation of the SikaRoof green roof system, but also the incorporation of a single ply warm roof and a paved warm roof system.

For the Best Small Project category, Sika’s work at Tettenhall College has been recognised, alongside a second project – The Butterfly Centre. Tettenhall College was a milestone project for the company, as it was the first installation of its Basalt Grey Sarnafil AT in the UK, installed by De Rosa Installations across a 73m2 exterior roof. The Butterfly Centre, meanwhile, is a hub providing mental health support for the community of Harlow. The project was televised on DIY SOS.

Sika has been shortlisted in the Health and Safety category for its joint project with Invictus Roofing at Enthoven House.

The Sustainability Award category is due to be awarded to a project that minimises carbon emissions, materials and water consumption during construction, or one that encourages biodiversity. Sika’s Temple Park Crescent project has also been shortlisted for this award. The development incorporates SikaRoof substrate which is made up of 100% recycled materials. The roof will absorb carbon dioxide, insulate the building and control stormwater levels, all whilst promoting biodiversity growth.

Winners will be announced at a lunch taking place on June 6 in Birmingham.
