LABC Building Excellence Awards 2021 winner: LABC Newcomer of the Year
More than 750 leading construction industry figures attended the LABC Building Excellence Awards at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel to acclaim best practise, quality and standards in construction.
These were the first Building Excellence Awards since 2019 following the global pandemic and LABC has revised the awards to focus more on professional skills and competence – dividing the awards into two: ‘people’ and ‘places’.
A panel of industry experts judged a list of the highest quality projects and teams from around England and Wales to showcase solutions to complex technical or construction issues, site constraints, technical innovation and the building control professionalism that leads to safe, sustainable and high quality construction projects.
LABC is delighted to announce the LABC Newcomer of the Year winner is Jarred Parisi, East Cambridgeshire District Council.
The judges were impressed by Jarred’s career path and commitment to learning. Jarred joined the LABC network in 2018 as a temp before being employed as an apprentice surveyor. When working in Building Control he realised he had a passion for surveying. He wants to learn at every opportunity, gets on with his job in a professional and courteous manner and is popular with staff and clients. Jarred embodies the LABC ethos that training and development can help someone develop a career for themselves. He is halfway through the building control surveying degree and continues to develop each day.
Congratulating Jarred, Lorna Stimpson, LABC Chief Executive said,
“These new style awards reflect LABC’s new focus on skills, quality and competency and reflect the best in construction from a technical perspective. Jarred has worked tirelessly throughout an extremely difficult year to continue learning and progressing in his career within local authority building control."
