Press Release
Whin Hill Road, South Yorkshire

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 Residential Extension is Whin Hill Road, South Yorkshire.

Set within South Yorkshire’s hidden gem of a city, Doncaster, Whin Hill Road shows exceptional sensitivity to the conservation sensitive area as well as the landscape and surrounding neighbourhood. This extension demonstrates outstanding design skills, innovation and creativity in its extension and alterations. Using architectural elements, Whin Hill Road harmonises with the existing structure, and creates a visually appealing and cohesive result.

The LABC public service building control team from Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council have demonstrated excellent communication skills, both within their team and with project teams – making sure to be accessible, responsive, and able to effectively convey regulatory requirements and expectations. They collaborated well with project teams, architects, engineers, and contractors to ensure compliance and addressed any issues or challenges that arose.

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."
