The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London was host to the key players from the mastic asphalt industry on Friday 6th June who gathered for the annual AGM and MAC Awards to recognise and celebrate the year’s top projects, contractors and achievements.

Sponsored by SIG Roofing Supplies, the Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) Awards are one of the waterproofing industry’s most prestigious events and provides the ideal platform for members to honour its top professionals and projects.  With mastic asphalt proven to be the most reliable and durable waterproofing product available, these attributes have contributed to a number of successful projects throughout a continuously positive 2014.
