LABC Building Excellence Awards 2023 winner: Best Non-residential Extension, Alteration or Conversion

Press Release

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 Best Non-residential Extension, Alteration, or Conversion is Ince Benet, Merseyside.

Located just 10 miles from Liverpool City Centre, Ince Benet presents a formerly derelict unit brought back to life, transformed into a retreat and place of worship. The quality of workmanship on this project was exceptionally high and the design successfully preserves the essence of the original building whilst making it virtually unrecognisable from its previous structure.

The LABC Public Service Building Control Team at Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council worked tirelessly on this project and kept excellent communication with the project teams. The architect, contractor and building control effectively became one team with a single goal, which has contributed to the success of the Ince Benet project.

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."
