The key players from the mastic asphalt industry gathered at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London on Friday 9th June for the annual AGM and MAC Awards to recognise and celebrate the year’s top projects, contractors and achievements.

One of the waterproofing industry’s most prestigious events, the Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) Awards is sponsored by Alltype Specialist Roofing Supplies 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 2016.

In a field of outstanding entries, Infallible Systems was awarded the coveted Contractor of the Year Award for its exceptional work on Tower Bridge, while Knight Asphalt picked up the Challenge Trophy for its work on the Road Safety Experience in Rochester.

Winner of the John Blowers Award for Lifetime Achievement was Ellie Coulter for her work with Sussex Asphalte, a successful business which was started by her father in 1948 and has been continuously trading for nearly 70 years.  The company continues to flourish today while maintaining the traditions of the asphalt trade.

Every year the AGM is organised and held by the Mastic Asphalt Council, a non-profit making independent body that represents more than 90 companies including the UK’s leading mastic asphalt contractors and manufacturers.

The Mastic Asphalt Council AGM is always a celebration of the past year’s successes and its awards has grown in terms of both attendees and projects to celebrate. Mastic Asphalt is still the best waterproofing solution and all involved are confident that specifiers rely on the proven performance and longevity of mastic asphalt.

The council offers free technical advice to specifiers and contractors and also manages the craft training carried out at Hackney College.
