NFRC Award Win for Lakesmere's Optic Cloak

The Lakesmere Group is delighted to have won a top award at the UK Roofing Awards 2017, organised by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC).

The building envelope and façade specialist was recognised in the Sheeting and Cladding category for its work on the Optic Cloak, the striking flue tower at the heart of the new Greenwich Peninsula Low Carbon Energy Centre in London.

Lakesmere faced strong competition from the other shortlisted projects in the category and not least from another of its own contracts, the new southern entrance at Leeds rail station in Yorkshire.

Judges by a panel of industry experts, the winning project were those that satisfied the exacting criteria of demonstrating a high level of complexity, workmanship and problem solving.  The judges also looked at the overall aesthetic qualities of the building, environmental qualities and its contribution to the built environment.

The winners of the NFRC UK Roofing Awards 2017 were announced on Friday 19th May.
