LABC Building Excellence Awards 2023 winner: Best Individual New Home

Press Release
Above Town, Devon

More than 900 leading construction industry figures attended the LABC Building Excellence Awards at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London to celebrate best practice, quality, and exemplary standards in construction.

The LABC Building Excellence Awards focus on professional skills and competence, as well as exemplar projects with categories for ‘People’ and ‘Places.’

A panel of industry experts judged a selection of the highest quality projects, professionals, and teams from around England and Wales to showcase solutions to complex technical or construction issues, site constraints and technical innovation. The awards highlight the vital contribution public sector building control teams make as part of the project team, ensuring safe, sustainable, and high-quality construction projects.

LABC is delighted to announce that the WINNER of the Best Individual New Home is Above Town, Devon.

‘Embedded' upon the Dartmouth hillside, Above Town is a refined property with thoughtful details and a structure robust enough to withstand the severity of its coastal environment. The complexity involved in the design and construction of this new property was a challenge for the small-scale local contractor as this was their most intricate project to date. The end result is a beautifully crafted property, only realised through the sheer determination and collaboration of the team involved.

The LABC public service building control team from Devon Building Control Partnership have demonstrated their knowledge and professionalism throughout the Above Town project. Their friendly and approachable attitude paired with their responsiveness to requests and pure professionalism, placing emphasis on free CPD events to ensure professionals are kept up to date with ever evolving building regulations are what really stands out in this local authority building control team.

Congratulating the whole team on their success, Lorna Stimpson, LABC Chief Executive said:

"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 tradespeople who go that extra mile."
