Oxford University Central Building Excellence Awards

It's been a strange and unsettling year and we're gutted that we haven't been able to hold the LABC Building Excellence Awards Regional and Grand Finals events in the offline world in 2020. However, we're very pleased to be able to announce the winners and highly commended from the Central region awards, nonetheless.

I firmly believe that one of the best ways to see more good work is to praise building excellence and publicly acknowledge companies, designers, site managers and trades people who go the extra mile because of the pride they have in their work.

The 2021 awards

Unfortunately because of COVID-19 we've had to announce our regional winners later than usual this year and there therefore won’t be a Grand Finals for 2020.

However, we’ll be in touch with details of how to enter the 2021 awards when they’re open for entries.

Hello there

Apologies for the delay in replying to this one - we've been reviewing our plans.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic the LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards have been cancelled for 2021. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will update this page should the situation change.

Kind regards
Julie, LABC
