CARLISLE® CM Europe Scoops Prestigious UK Industry Award

The team at CARLISLE® CM Europe together with Topek Ltd and Robertson Construction Group Ltd are celebrating after scooping two awards at the prestigious UK Roofing Awards, hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC).The awards took place on the 19th May in London and recognise outstanding standards in the roofing industry. Projects were judged on several categories including workmanship, safety, complexity and the challenges they overcame.

CARLISLE® CM Europe received the Single Ply Roofing Award. Additionally, the same project scooped the Green Roofing Award for their work on the Macallan Distillery Expansion in Scotland. This project is one of a kind in the UK and required several tailor made solutions including a bespoke roof design that was created by the CARLISLE® CM Europe’s technical team.

CARLISLE® CM Europe’s CARLISLE® Academy provided specialist product and installation training to Topek’s installation team. A day long, hands-on training at the CARLISLE® Academy in Mansfield (Nottinghamshire), covered intricate product and installation details adhering to the correct product specifications.

To ensure the highest quality and watertight roof, RESITRIX® SKW Full Bond, ALUTRIX® 600 and RESIFLEX® products were specified from CARLISLE® CM Europe’s product range. RESITRIX® SKW is a full surface, self-adhesive and root resistant EPDM waterproofing membrane. The vapour barrier membrane ALUTRIX® 600 has the added advantage that it can be walked upon straight after installation and that it is puncture proof. RESIFLEX® expansion joint tape was used for professional cross and joint sealing.

One of Topek’s most experienced squads, with more than sixty years’ experience between them, were assigned the task of bringing all these elements together to deliver the final package.

The Macallan Distillery Expansion project brought multiple teams together and has contributed to a raising industry standards for innovation, design and workmanship. Topek Ltd, Robertson Construction Group, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and CARLISLE® CM Europe worked to a tight deadline and brought all their experience together to produce a roofing project that was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.

“We are so proud to win the award in the single ply roofing category but what is equally impressive is that the same project also won an award in the green roof category, which is a testimony of the far reaching benefits of our products and specially our bitumen backed EPDM RESITRIX® SKW Full Bond” stated Duncan Kirkwood, CARLISLE® CM Europe’s UK Managing Director.
