INCA Awards

Earlier this month Sandwood was happily notified that we had been awarded not one but two of the INCA Awards for 2013 . The Insulated Render and Cladding Association recognised the best EWI (External Wall Insulation) projects of the year. Our Harrow project, Boxtree Lane was nominated and took the award for the ‘Domestic New Build’ category but also came out on top winning the overall award for ‘Project of the Year’ which was between projects from all categories. Our hard work and collaboration with Alumasc / ALD Plastering Contractors has obviously paid off.
