INCA Awards 2024
Rewarding Excellence

The Annual INCA Awards

The highlight of the EWI industry calendar is undoubtedly the annual INCA Awards ceremony which celebrates External Wall Insulation at its best. Nominations are spread over various categories with each submission being rigorously scored by a panel of fully independent industry expert judges.

Following the hugely successful event in Nottingham in 2023 we’re staying in the Midlands area but moving to the second city of Birmingham. Once again, we’ve taken on board your feedback and plan to make a few changes this year in an effort to make it even more memorable and to make it a little easier to enter too! Although the venue can hold a few more than last year we do still have limited capacity so we strongly suggest booking early to avoid disappointment.

INCA Awards 2024 – The Venue

The 2024 INCA Awards will be hosted in the Horton Suite of the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in the very heart of Birmingham city centre. Located across the road from New Street railway station and offering ample car parking the Macdonald Burlington Birmingham is very easy to get to whether travelling by car or train. Birmingham Airport is within easy reach too.
Described as “4 star luxury in Birmingham” and originally called The Midland Hotel, the Burlington was built in 1874 for the convenience of passengers arriving to the city by rail. Accessed through the elegant Burlington Arcade, the hotel is less than a minutes’ walk from Grand Central & Birmingham New Street train station – as convenient as ever for visitors to the city – and just a stone’s throw from bustling New Street. At the end of the road, you’ll find one of the UK’s largest and most impressive contemporary shopping centres – the Bullring.

INCA Award Entries – Project Categories

This year we have reorganised the award categories to make it easier to enter but without narrowing down the entry criteria. We will be judging against 11 project categories but entry is a little clearer this year – you will only need to decide if your project is new build or refurb, low rise (below 11m) or high rise and the type of finish (all render or brick effect / mixed).

Please use your judgement as to which category to enter based on the majority of the finish – we will allocate it if you are not sure which one to enter.

Projects of all sizes are welcome and small projects (below 300m sq) will be recognised and judged fairly against similar size projects in a small project of the year category. From the entries the judging panels will then also decide on a judges choice for architectural design and a separate judges choice for environmental impact.

The entry categories are listed below.
