South East LABC Building Excellence Awards 2016

South East LABC Award-winners land Grand Final 2016 spot (Details for 2017 entries to follow shortly...)

The South East has selected the projects that will represent the region in the annual Grand Final of the LABC Building Excellence Awards later in the year. Award finalists from Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex, East Sussex and Kent were among 400 guests at a ceremony where the winners were announced.

The 14 winning and 11 highly commended projects and individuals at the Friday 24 June event, which took place at The Grand Brighton, received their trophies and certificates from representatives of LABC sponsors FMB, Home&Build, InstaGroup, Jewson, Polypipe Terrain, TLX, LABC Acoustics and LABC Warranty.

Congratulating the winners, Jacqui Barr, Chair of the South East Region, said: “The awards are an opportunity for us all to celebrate the very best construction in the region, recognising the high level of skill and professionalism the building industry is capable of reaching.

LABC awards are all about the essence of good buildings, with finalists judged not on architectural beauty, but on the “excellence” shown from a construction and technical building control point of view. They celebrate the design and construction teams that, having tussled with technical issues and difficult sites, found innovative and creative solutions.

Award categories cover the whole range of construction, rewarding everything from the best extension, local builder or traditional craftsperson and conversion through to the best new housing development, public service building, inclusive building and partnership with a local authority building control team.

Winners automatically qualify for the Grand Finals, which this year will be held on Monday 28 November at the Westminster Park Plaza in London. View the successful projects and individuals or download photos of the event free of charge.

During the awards, more than £3,000 was raised for LABC President Jayne Hall’s chosen charity YoungMinds, which is committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people.
