For almost forty years, External Wall Insulation (EWI) in the UK has been represented by INCA, the industry’s trade association, and INCA is now a flourishing organisation with its membership comprising the industry’s premier system designers, component suppliers and installers. Technical standards and excellent workmanship are the mantras of INCA and the highlight of INCA’s calendar is always the annual INCA awards, showcasing the best in External Wall Insulation. The 2020 awards were presented in an online ceremony to members and the winning projects demonstrate the tremendous variety of schemes carried out in both new build and refurbishment sectors and for residential, commercial and educational buildings.
Every year many of us in the H&V industry spend much of our time, and not an inconsiderable amount of our budgets, attending award ceremonies. Then we moan about it… unless we win. So why do we keep entering? Terri Taylor, Marketing Executive, Intergas, believes that awards are good, but some are better than others.
