What are the LABC Building Excellence Awards?
The awards celebrate your achievements in the construction industry. They reward excellent buildings, outstanding companies, and partnerships and individuals that go that extra mile.
The LABC network covers all local authorities in England and Wales and is split into 12 regions
Nominations are made regionally – with all entries going through to the regional judging. Judges will select regional winners in each category who will be automatically shortlisted for the chance to win the coveted national awards.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we’re unable to hold regional award ceremonies this year but will be holding one national award ceremony celebrating ‘People’ and ‘Places’ which will take place in London on 28 January 2022.

It’s not all about looks! We consider other important factors including:
- The challenges you faced in meeting or exceeding building regulations and how you overcame them
- Effective working relationships with LABC surveyors
- Outstanding craftsmanship
- Innovation and problem solving
- Sustainability and high performance
- Site and project management
- Inclusivity - where applicable is there evidence of an inclusive approach that exceeds part M
Who can enter (and other useful information)?
Entries can be submitted by anyone involved in the project, including contractors, architects, clients and local authority building control surveyors.
All entries will be endorsed by a local authority building control surveyor.
