The INCA Awards 2020, in line with current Government Covid-19 recommendations, culminated in an exciting, virtually streamed, ceremony on November 24th with virtual guests in attendance.

As with each year, entries filtered in from all over the country.  Projects were recognised for their innovative design and exceptional quality.  Particularly prominent this year was the use of brick and clay slip systems; a real alternative to traditional masonry and a fantastic opportunity for building designers to match existing and immediate brick surroundings.

The newly introduced ‘Architectural Merit’ Award enabled special recognition for non-members wishing to showcase splendid examples of projects utilising External Wall Insulation.

A full round up of the results including all winners and highly commended projects from the event can be found in the INCA Winners 2020 Brochure. Please click on ‘view winners brochure’.

We will gather and analyse feedback following the 2020 ceremony and will make every effort to ensure the next Awards prove to be an even better celebration of our industry!

Entries for The INCA Awards 2021 will open in the first quarter of next year.  INCA will be focusing on sharing the successes of the award winners and those shortlisted beyond our members, ensuring that quality and excellence in EWI is recognised more widely.

2021 will see a diversification into the wider Cladding market extending the opportunity for Cladding designers and installers to submit entries.

Finally, we hope to see you again next year and look forward to receiving many EWI and Cladding entries showcasing the versality, flexibility and aesthetical content that exists in both industries.

If you would like to be associated with excellence and quality in EWI / Cladding, you are able to register your interest in INCA sponsorship now.  Once registered, you will be first to receive the details of our new sponsorship packages along with a ‘first-refusal’ option.
