The team at Curtis Moore are delighted to have received three Kalzip accolades at the annual TeamKal Awards and Conference! Our entire team have worked hard over the past year and were rewarded by receiving the following awards:
Best Kalzip Refurbishment Project for the re-roofing of Kelvin Hall, Phase 2
Highly Commended for Technical Excellence & Design for Tesco, Project Heart
Highly Commended for Best Kalzip Project (over 1500m2) for Bertha Park High School, Perth
With the aim of meriting the projects and companies who have excelled in their field, the TeamKal Awards are regarded as one of the most prestigious awards in the roofing industry. The unique partnership that exists between Kalzip and TeamKal places contractors at the forefront of the industry and recognises each for technical excellence, best practice, quality products and installation.
We were up against some tough competition in these categories but we are absolutely delighted that our hard work on all three of these projects has been recognised. Having been in business for over 18 years, we are so proud of our portfolio and award winning projects that include Haymarket Railway Station and Wythenshawe Interchange.
WHAT IS THE TEAMKAL NETWORK?
Originally formed in 1995, TeamKal is an installer network of approved contractors who are fully trained in the installation of Kalzip aluminium standing seam. As the network has strengthened year by year, Kalzip has chosen to only operate through the approved installer network. This partnership over the last 20 years has helped deliver some of the world’s most iconic buildings and many important regional projects. This has helped build a portfolio of excellence and includes everything from local schools to international airports. Each project that has been designed, developed, produced and installed by the contractor network has helped take Kalzip around the world and the one hundred million square metres milestone has even been reached!
THE BEST KALZIP REFURBISHMENT PROJECT AWARD
We were delighted to receive the award for The Best Kalzip Refurbishment Project for our work on Phase 2 of Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall restoration project. Working alongside main contractors Mclaughlin & Harvey, Curtis Moore supplied 7,500 sq.m of Kalzip roof for the Grade B listed building.
This is a part of Kelvin Hall’s £35 million redevelopment and is now one of the UK’s biggest museums and research centres. The project is a joint partnership and is being funded by Glasgow City Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Scottish Government, Glasgow University and Historic Scotland.
Kelvin Hall first opened 91 years ago in 1927 as an exhibition centre. Since then, the building has been transformed into a cultural and sporting complex of international scale.
Speaking of the prestigious contract to work on such an iconic landmark, Managing Director at Curtis Moore, Euan Walker, said:
“The Kelvin Hall is a historic and much loved venue, and for Curtis Moore to be involved in its transformation is a particularly proud moment for us.”
HIGHLY COMMENDED FOR TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE & DESIGN
Our efforts were once again rewarded for our work on Tesco, Project Heart. We are delighted to have achieved the Highly Commended Award For Technical Excellence & Design. The Curtis Moore team worked on this new development located in Tesco’s Shire Park campus in Welwyn Garden City. It will become a staff well-being and quality assessment centre that will encourage staff interaction, collaboration and creativity.
This new multifunctional space will provide an opportunity to host events, showcase products and promote new initiatives. The new campus will also provide facilities such as testing kitchens, a state-of-the-art gym, an event and presentation space, a dramatic central atrium and a Tesco Express.
Curtis Moore joined award winning contractor McLaren Construction to install a Kalzip curved roofing system. The system’s low weight, durability, speed of construction and adaptability makes it ideal for this new build structure.
HIGHLY COMMENDED FOR BEST KALZIP PROJECT OVER 1500 SQ.M
Our third and final award of the night was Highly Commended for Best Kalzip Project Over 1500 sq.m for our work on Bertha Park High School in Perth. We are delighted to be working on such an exciting project alongside main contractor Robertson Construction. The project has received £19.6 million of funding from the Scottish Government.
Bertha Park High School is a brand new secondary school that will open in August 2019. It is the first school in the UK in 30 years that has been built to accommodate a population increase. With a projected population growth of 24% over a 25-year period, Perth and Kinross is one of the fastest growing areas in Scotland.
The Curtis Moore team started work on the 1100 pupil school at the beginning of this year. The school has been designed with a single sloping roof and we have installed the Kalzip roofing works and rainscreen cladding to the main school building. Additionally, we have installed Kalzip roofing works to the small energy centre. The roof of the main school building includes Kalzip sheets that are over 100m long and were produced on site, at eaves level.
