Colorado Springs, CO – Rob Haddock, CEO of Metal Roof Innovations Limited (MRIL), manufacturer of S-5!® metal roofing attachment products, was recently announced as the 2018 recipient of the Construction Specifications Institute’s (CSI) Ben John Small Technical Writing Award. The award honors those “recognized by their peers as an outstanding technical writer and/or expert in their field.”

In making the selection, Haddock was commended by CSI for his technical expertise in innovation and technical writing in the roofing industry. Specifically noted was his series titled Metal Roofing from A (Aluminum) to Z (Zinc). CSI also acknowledged Haddock for sharing his passion for metal roofing through technical articles and the more than 100 presentations he’s given at trade shows and meetings of various industry professional organizations.

CSI is an organization that strives to improve construction specification best practices. The Technical Writing Award is named after Ben John Small – founder and former president of the Metropolitan New York Chapter of CSI. Small chaired the Chapter’s Technical Committee. 

Haddock has been involved in the metal construction industry for nearly half a century. His unwavering confidence in metal roofing’s superiority is behind the success of his company and the industry dominance of the S-5!® rooftop attachment line. By facilitating the attachment of nearly anything to a metal roof without penetrating the roof’s surface, S-5! clamping products have helped make metal the most user-friendly roof on the market.

Frequently requested by trade groups for speaking and educational engagements across the country, Haddock also serves as Director of the Metal Roof Advisory Group, Ltd. and consults on roofing solutions and services worldwide. He is an inaugural member of the Metal Construction Hall of Fame, a recipient of the Carl Cash Award from ASTM (for technical writing), and winner of the Pat Bush award from Metal Construction Association for unselfish contributions to the industry.
