Triple award success for Westwood

Three standout projects, delivered thanks to WestWood Liquid Technologies, have been recognised at the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing (LRWA) Awards 2024.


Westwood, in partnership with EMC Roofing & Cladding, topped the Liquid Waterproofing Project of the Year category for the ‘Wedding Cake’. Described by the judges as a ‘clear winner’, this unique project showcased the aesthetic versatility of PMMA liquid-applied membranes. 


Located within the grounds of Waddesdon Estate near Oxford, the art was designed by renowned Portuguese artist, Joana Vasconcelos, and shipped to the UK as a steel modular structure which was subsequently constructed by Westgreen contractors.


Westwood provided a waterproofing solution and skid-inhibiting surface for the 12-metre-tall, monumental ceramic sculptural pavilion. Stairways on three levels, walkways and terrace areas around the ‘cake’ were all waterproofed. Thanks to meticulous colour matching, the PMMA coating was manufactured in yellow, pink, green, and blue pastel colours to align aesthetically with the artist's vision.

In the same category, Westwood and Cure Group, picked up the Highly Commended award for the ‘Shmuseum’. Demonstrating highly skilled workmanship and PMMA’s versatility, this project emulated a Grand Prix track providing a visually stunning and robust surface in a ‘dream garage for automotive YouTuber Tim Burton.

Westwood’s third accolade was secured in the Liquid Roofing Project of the Year in a Buried Application category. In partnership with Ifield & Barrett Roofing, the team achieved the Highly Commended award for the Old Bailey; a complex project requiring terrace areas to be waterproofed on the eighth and ninth floors of an occupied London office building.


Speaking about the team’s success, Gary Sutton, regional sales manager at WestWood, said: “These awards are testament to the quality of our products, the exceptional skills of our contractors and the high standards we set ourselves on every project.


“Winning the Liquid Waterproofing Project of the Year award and being highly commended in the same category, is a particular highlight. Both projects are visually unique, showcasing what can be achieved with PMMA not only in terms of outstanding waterproofing but superior aesthetics.


“We are also really grateful to the contractors which have been instrumental in helping us to secure these awards. Their expertise has enabled our solutions to be delivered with excellence and care, and they are credit to our industry.”


A total of 20 projects were shortlisted across four LRWA Award categories, including six involving WestWood. The entries were judged by an independent panel, including liquid waterproofing specialists and specifiers. To ensure fairness, all entries were scored without details of the manufacturer or contractor. Points were awarded for each project’s complexity, workmanship, evidence of problem-solving, and aesthetics.
