The British Damage Management Association (BDMA) sets the professional standards for restoring properties affected by damage such as fire and flood.

Its annual awards recognise industry leaders who excel in delivering exceptional service, promoting innovation, and upholding ethical practices.

Vinci Response achieved notable recognition this year by winning the ‘Sustainable Project of the Year Award’ for their innovative work at Barracuda Court in Hampshire.

The residential block experienced severe interstitial condensation, which caused damp patches on internal walls. Vinci Response implemented an external negative pressure drying system, resolving the issue without relocating residents or carrying out extensive demolition. This approach minimised disruption, reduced material waste, and conserved natural resources.
