LABC Building Excellence Awards 2023 winner: Construction Specialist of the Year

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 Construction Specialist of the Year is Chris Jones of Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd.

Chris is a dedicated individual with a keen eye for detail and a diligent nature. Described as ‘an absolute joy to work with’, Chris has an immense skill for identifying future design issues that may affect compliance and works to keep the lines of communication to the Building Control team open, ensuring well thought out and quick decision making is made on site to improve efficiency.

Chris commented on the pride that he feels when people move into the properties he has worked on and finds fulfilment in knowing that these buildings contribute positively to the lives and communities they serve.

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."
