INCA Executive Chairman, Mitch Gee
INCA Awards Dinner
It was great to see so many familiar faces turn out at the recent INCA Awards Dinner, many of whom have been in the industry for over 25 years. It was a great night, and one which I hope everyone enjoyed.
At the awards, I tried to make the point that with EWI we are not dealing with a new technology. It is tried and tested, and has been successfully insulating homes in both low-rise and high-rise applications for over 25 years. That said, we should not be complacent and we will learn from recent events.
It is important to remember that we have only insulated 4% of the solid wall properties in the UK, so despite being a well-established industry, the potential for growth is enormous. Also, we must not forget that we are so much more than just insulation! The awards demonstrated this by showcasing such an array of projects, and EWI encompasses many types of construction in both the new build and retrofit sector.
Please give us your feedback on how we can improve the event for next year. I think we have ‘done’ rugby, so any suggestions for a headline speaker will be appreciated. It would be nice to receive an award from someone less than 6’ 5’’. How much is Frankie Dettori?
INCA promoted the winning and shortlisted projects, as well as the sponsors on the Construction Enquirer and Architects Journal websites. RCI Magazine also sent two solus e-blasts to approximately 30,000 building professionals. The reach of the INCA Awards means that it is worth considering what you will enter next year!
