SIG Design & Technology, has been named winner of the Best use of Hard Metal Roof category at the RCI Pitched Roofing Awards.
SIG Design & Technology received the award for its work with contractor All Metal Roofing on a project in Poplar, London, featuring elZinc cladding.
The winning entry, a redevelopment of a 1939 factory building and 1956 warehouse at 83 Barchester Street, Poplar, used elZinc Rainbow Brown supplied by SIG Zinc & Copper. The zinc was chosen for its bronze coloured tone which compliments the existing brickwork. The elZinc cladding also offers protection against corrosion, is cost-effective and sustainable — the zinc used is 100% recyclable.
SIG Design & Technology was also ‘highly commended’ at the awards for its work with contractor Kingsley Specialist Roofing on the Lady Bee Enterprise Centre project at Shoreham Port, West Sussex.
The dockside development is a group of 14 light industrial units at the port featuring an unusual saw-tooth profile which evokes, at certain points, both a wave form and the hull of a ship.
Following consultations with architect ECE Architecture, SIG Design & Technology’s sister company, SIG Zinc & Copper, supplied elZinc Slate Advance for the standing seam roof and elZinc Crystal Shingles for the fish-scale cladding, as well as the building’s Armourplan membrane gutters.
