BLM Photo Competition 2017 Winner
Here, at BLM, we held our first-ever photo competition to discover the most authentic and diverse aspect of Lead. The competition invited roofing and leadwork contractors to submit images of Lead Sheet used in a variety of roofing applications from impressive and inspiring projects.
It was fantastic to see so many pictures that captured Lead Sheet in its beauty. Thank you to everyone who entered!
The winner and the two runners-up were picked by a panel of BLM employees together with independent judges from the Lead Sheet Association (LSA) – the foremost independent authority on the design, specification and application of Rolled Lead Sheet for the construction industry.
We are delighted to announce the winner! Congratulations to Kevin Bennett from K&M Leadwork Ltd
with his winning restoration project of the Village Hall Clock Tower in Goring-on-Thames
. He is happy to receive an LSA training Gift Voucher worth £250, a set of BLM Roofing Tools & toolbag and a copy of the latest LSA Manual.
Kevin was appointed by the trustees of Goring-on-Thames Parish Council to undertake the replacement of an Iconic local landmark and work began removing the original lead roof in April 2016.
The original lead roof had lasted well but some of the lead detailing required altering to prevent its early failure from reoccurring where the post arms meet the clock tower. It took Kevin a total of 47 days spread over 3 months to finish the job due to the village hall being in use and no noise permitted at times.
‘It was a privilege for me to be a part of the restoration project of the Clock Tower, which also won the NFRC UK Roofing Awards 2017 Lead Roofing Category.’, said Kevin.
We wish Kevin very best of luck in his future leadwork projects!
