Marley Contract Services has secured victory in the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) Scottish Roofing Contractor of the Year awards after beating off stiff competition from building projects from across the region.
Marley Contract Services won the Roof Tiling category at the awards ceremony held in Edinburgh, thanks to its outstanding workmanship on Hayfield Grange, a luxury residential development in the highly desirable Cults area of Aberdeen.
This is the second major NFRC award for the company this year having previously won the national finals in May for its work on Grade II listed Rainbow House in the West End of Glasgow. The NFRC awards recognise outstanding achievements across the entire UK roofing industry.
As well as being a leading roofing and cladding specialist, Marley Contract Services is able to act as principal contractor on a wide range of projects. The company’s breath of expertise extends to specialist leadwork, flat roofs and sustainable building envelopes, many of which were required on the Highfield Grange development.
Judges at the NFRC commended Marley Contract Services for its ability to meet the strict aesthetic and quality requirements set by the developer at Highfield Grange, where properties are priced up to £1.175m. The experience and knowledge of the team meant they were able to help ensure that the roof complimented the light grey stone exterior of the buildings.
Alongside this requirement, there was the challenge of having to work around a large number of dormer windows, hips and gables, all against a strict build schedule set by the developer.
Ray Horwood CBE, Chief Executive of NFRC, said: “We’d like to congratulate Marley Contract Services on winning the Roof Tiling category, which was greatly deserved. The company was up against some stiff competition but the Hayfield Grange project really shone through thanks to its outstanding aesthetics and the excellent workmanship.”
Archie McPike, Director at Marley Contract Services, said: “It’s an honour to have our work on this project recognised by this leading industry award. This is the second NFRC award we have achieved in succession, which is a real testament to the skill, enthusiasm and commitment of our entire team.”
