Wetherby Warms Up With INCA Award Wins
Wetherby Building Systems Ltd, the UK market leader in the manufacture and distribution of insulated render systems, is celebrating carrying off three awards at the Insulated Render and Cladding Association (INCA) 2012 Awards.
The Awards, which took place on 3rd October, recognise the UK’s most successful external wall insulation projects. Wetherby was proud to win the Domestic Refurbishment Low Rise (six or more houses) and Domestic New Build of the Year categories, as well as the prestigious Project of the Year award.
Wetherby stood out from the crowd with double award winner Myddelton Place, a multi-storey new-build scheme in London for Notting Hill Housing Association, and a BISF refurbishment project in Litherland, Merseyside for One Vision Housing.
At Myddleton Place, Wetherby’s WBS Epsitec System in white, yellow and orange, installed by contractor Lawtech, was in perfect keeping with trendy Notting Hill. Reflecting the best in contemporary living, the striking building’s features included brightly coloured rainscreen panels and Siberian larch timber.
From a practical perspective, the 32-apartment development achieved an impressively low U-value (0.17W/m2K), thanks to JCMT Architects’ specification of the WBS Epsitec System.
In Litherland, One Vision Housing needed to improve the poor insulation and thermal inefficiency of its BISF properties while giving them a smart new facelift. Triangle Architects specified a WBS Insulated Render System with 100mm EPS insulation, which massively reduced the homes’ U-value from 2.79W/m2K to 0.30W/m2K.
Said Wetherby’s Marketing Director, Anne-Marie Armstrong: “This is a fantastic accolade for us and we’re gratified that our contribution to improving both energy efficiency and aesthetics has been recognised by the industry.”
