The LABC Grand Finals, one of the most recognised in the construction industry calendar, took place on Friday 10 November 2017 at the Westminster Park Plaza in London and winners were announced by writer, broadcaster, actor and former Conservative MP Gyles Brandreth.
A panel of industry experts judged a list of the highest quality projects from around England and Wales to reward the best in technical innovation, sustainability and design.
Over 800 building industry professionals including contractors, architects and engineers, attended the celebration to find out which projects won across the 15 hotly contested categories.
LABC Chief Executive Paul Everall said: “Our Building Excellence Awards are an opportunity for the industry to celebrate good practice.
Our winners demonstrate how positive working relationships with local council building control teams achieve high quality, sustainable buildings.
"Our awards are unique because they recognise how this cooperation improves building standards and professionalism across the industry.”
A diverse range of projects won, including a fishing lodge, community special school and independent living scheme and there were 15 winners and one high commendation.
The cherry on the cake on this fantastic evening was that our guests raised more than £9,000 for LABC President Richard Scott’s chosen charity.
This gives a grand total of around £53,074 raised for Pancreatic Cancer UK over the year!
