Church’s crowning glory sees BMI Redland reach the heights

Craftsmanship and attention to detail received their just reward when the re-roofing of Shettleston New Parish Church in Glasgow’s East End won the Roof Tiling category in the National Federation of Roofing Contractors’ UK Roofing Awards.

A force for good in roofing

As part of an initiative to attract former service personnel into the construction industry, Coleg Cambria, Deeside, North East Wales; is hosting a Forces in Construction Insight Day on October 10th.

BMI pitches up with a new flat roof training facility

Following the completion of a new BMI Icopal flat roofing training area, and the refurbishment of the existing BMI Redland pitched training facility, BMI’s National Training Centre is now able to offer contractors, merchants and students an extensive range of both pitched and flat roof courses at the one location. This makes BMI the only UK roofing manufacturer able to offer training in both disciplines and at the one site.
