Glasgow based roofing and cladding contractor, Curtis Moore, has won another TeamKal award, their second in as many years. This week, they were recognised for their work on the newly opened Wythenshawe Interchange in Manchester.
The award is for ‘Best Kalzip Project (under 1500 sq.m) 2015, a category in which they were up against some tough competition from some of the best contractors in the UK.
The TeamKal Awards aim to reward those projects and companies that the judges believe have excelled in their field. The unique partnership that exists between Kalzip and TeamKal places contractors at the forefront of the industry and recognises each for technical excellence, quality products, installation and best practice.
Curtis Moore Ltd, which celebrated their 16th year in business just last week, was set up by husband and wife, Andrew and Yvonne Devlin. Together they started the company quite literally from their kitchen table and have grown year on year and now employ over 50 staff. They have built up an impressive portfolio including award winning projects such as Haymarket Railway Station and Advocates Close in Edinburgh, and their most recent Kalzip project – Bolton Interchange.
The award comes just a year after Curtis Moore were named ‘New Kalzip Contractor of the Year in 2015’. Managing Director, Andrew Devlin says, “We are delighted to be awarded yet again by such a fantastic company. To be recognised to provide their products and solutions to the very highest standard gives us great pride in our work.”
Wythenshawe Interchange was the first Kalzip project the Glasgow based firm were awarded following their first teamKal Award win in March 2015. The company noted that the roof was incredibly complex from a design and installation perspective due to the unusual shape in plan and the fact it curved in two planes in section. The roofing was the one of the most challenging tasks on site due to the complex secret fix eaves, facia and soffit system which curves in two dimensions and is fixed to complex bracketry and framing.
Of course, it wasn’t all about black tie dinners and celebrations, finalists enjoyed a very informative day at the annual Kalzip Conference which took place at Carden Park Hotel Hotel in Cheshire, where they were able to hear about developments within the organisation and the industry in general.
Andrew Devlin, rounds off by saying, “It has been an amazing start to our relationship with Kalzip and we’ve enjoyed every minute of the journey, we look forward maintaining a great partnership and aim to win many more awards!”
