The Insulated Render and Cladding Association (INCA) Awards 2015, which reward achievement in the external wall industry (EWI), are now open for entries. The annual awards have become a benchmark for innovation and excellence in the industry and for over a decade have been recognising outstanding performance in EWI which contributes to improving energy efficiency, cutting fuel bills and lifting households out of fuel poverty.
There are nine award categories covering projects in the non-residential and domestic sectors, training and sustainability which are designed to recognise the abundance of talent working in different areas across the EWI industry and the winners are decided by an independent judging panel of respected industry experts.
This year sees the introduction of a brand new award for Outstanding Achievement which will be the first to be presented to an individual. This award will recognise those who have made a real difference to the EWI industry through personal attainment and anyone from a Managing Director to an apprentice can be nominated for initiatives including business development, health and safety, marketing, and technical development.
INCA Marketing Committee Chairman Anita Houghton said: “The INCA Awards are the perfect opportunity to showcase not only the high quality of work undertaken by INCA members but also the wide-ranging benefits of EWI, including lower energy bills, improved living standards and area regeneration. With a new award for individual excellence alongside those for companies who have gone above and beyond, this year’s Awards will once again highlight all that is good about EWI.”
The Awards entry form can be downloaded at www.inca-ltd.org.uk and the closing date for entries is Monday 16 March 2015 at 5:00pm. The winners will be revealed in front of over 300 industry guests at the black-tie INCA Awards Dinner later this year.
