Bauder scores a hat-trick in November awards ceremonies

Bauder has been honoured with three roofing industry awards for hot melt and green roof installations as well as roofing supplier of the year.

The Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association (LRWA) Awards ceremony took place at the Titanic hotel in Liverpool on 6th November. Bauder attended with approved contractors Protech and Breyer Group who had been shortlisted for the liquid roofing project of the year in a buried application award and the liquid roofing project of the year under 1000m² award respectively. More than 300 people attended the sell-out event to celebrate workmanship and technical excellence across the liquid roofing and waterproofing sector, so we were delighted when Protech were announced as the winners of their category. Congratulations to both Protech and the Breyer Group on their success.


Sarah Spink, CEO of the LRWA said: “In our 40th anniversary year, it was fantastic to see such an incredible turnout at the event and to celebrate truly exceptional projects and people. The winners are a clear reflection of how much the liquid roofing and waterproofing industry has grown in recent years. Spanning a vast range of sectors, the projects demonstrate how liquids can be effectively used in some of the most challenging environments as well as the impressive skills of contractors working right across the UK. With such strong competition this year, we would like to congratulate all those that made the final and thank our sponsors for helping us to make the event another great success.”
On the 15th November, Bauder’s Scottish technical team attended the Scottish NFRC awards with approved contractors, Greenroof UK Ltd.

Greenroof UK were awarded green roof project trophy for their workmanship on the inspiring Lagg Whiskey Distillery and Visitor Centre on the Isle of Arran which features a sedum roof on a pitch of up to 31 degrees, in an unforgiving environment. The finished roof emulates the look of a rolling hillside and cuts an impressive view against the backdrop of the Firth of Clyde.

Scott Dean, managing director at Greenroof UK Ltd, commented: “This project pushed the boundaries in terms of installation, logistics and environment; therefore, it is a tremendous accolade to have won this award which acknowledges the contribution of everyone involved”


 “Successful projects don’t just happen. This thoroughly deserved recognition is the result of Greenroof’s hard work, professionalism and effective collaboration with the Bauder Scotland team.” Chris Roddick, green roof product manager at Bauder Ltd.

Bauder was also named roofing supplier of the year for Maidenhill Primary School, nominated by approved contractor Procladd (Scotland) Ltd. This project had seven roofing systems designed and supplied by Bauder, all installed by Procladd on behalf of BAM Construct UK. This was a real team effort award, so congratulations to all and thanks to Procladd for the opportunity.


“The roofing work at Maidenhill Primary School involved the installation of various Bauder
specifications and products. These included single ply, reinforced bitumen, BauderVIP, BauderROCK and PIR insulations, acoustic membrane and sedum green roofs.

The main challenges on the project included the interface with other subcontractors, including the Bauder PV system to the main single ply roof, along with the curved plan layout of the roofs, in particular to the nursery.
The school was successfully completed and handed over to the client thanks to the close liaison and collaboration between Bauder, BAM Construction and ourselves.” Stuart Tulloch, managing director, Procladd Ltd.

Bauder’s regional manager for Scotland, Vinny Fryars, said: “Bauder was delighted to have 4 projects nominated for the NFRC Scottish roofing awards this year. All were very varied, challenging roofing works installed to the highest quality by four separate contractors and it was fantastic that the Arran distillery came out on the green roofing category, especially with the hard work and diligence it took for Greenroof UK to make that project a success and look so fabulous.  

Maidenhill Primary school was a showcase of the fact that Bauder offer roofing solutions, not just materials, as each roof area had a different build up all supplied and guaranteed from one source. Receiving supplier of the year 2019 is also a reward for the exceptional service we offer on projects as a team from start to finish. Huge thanks to Procladd for their support on this award and also for their skilled install”.
