A FIRM in Huddersfield has won an award for its work on a housing development in Lancashire.
Meltham-based specialist cladding systems Hanson Structherm won the category for low-rise domestic refurbishment in the 2011 INCA Awards. The award was made for its work on a housing project in Preston.
The awards, which recognise innovation and excellence in external wall insulation, were presented at the 2011 INCA Conference and Exhibition at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.
Structherm managing director David Harrison and Adrian Bishop, of contractor Westdale Services, received their trophies from Coronation Street actress Katherine Kelly.
In their citation, the judges said: “With the Green Deal coming into force in 2012, there is likely to be a huge increase in consumer demand for EWI and this project shows what can be achieved.”
Structherm also had three out of the four shortlisted projects in the same category – covering contracts in Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.
More than 240 delegates from local authorities, housing associations joined architects, consultants and contractors for the conference to find out more about how EWI can improve the energy performance of UK homes and businesses.
The event also included an exhibition of the latest EWI technology by INCA members and the launch of the new INCA website at www.inca-ltd.org.uk showcasing EWI for new build and refurbishment projects in the non-residential and domestic sectors.
Structherm, based at Bent Ley Road, has been supplying the construction industry for more than 25 years and has technical expertise in areas including precast concrete building systems, external wall insulation and structural insulated cladding.
