LABC South East Building Excellence Awards 2019

These awards are held every year and we put forward schemes that demonstrate excellent working relationships with our clients and quality work.

Our building control team were represented at the prestigious annual LABC South East Building Excellence Awards 2019, which took place at The Grand, Brighton, where we celebrated success with our clients.

Over 300 guests were welcomed to the ceremony, including architects, agents, contractors, designers and representatives from local authority building control who gathered to celebrate excellent construction building projects and individuals in the South East. These awards showcase buildings and design teams that have faced complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. The awards also celebrate the success of innovative, smart solutions.

We were delighted to discover that one of our projects, Greyfriars Vineyard Chalk Wine Cellar, was a winner in the best small commercial category. Adam Petipher, Building Control Surveyor who worked closely with project team attended the event and joined them on stage to accept the award.
