The LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards showcase buildings and design teams that have faced challenges such as complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. The awards also call attention to innovative, smart and creative solutions that have been implemented in building projects in the South West.

Event highlights

In total there were 15 winners and 10 highly commended entries. Winning projects include: North Devon District Hospital (Best Public Service Building), Wakeham New Barn in Kingsbridge (Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion), Greatwood Camp in Bridgwater (Best Inclusive Building) and The Dunes in Perranporth (Best High Volume New Housing Development, pictured below).

Charity fundraising was for We Build the Future, a construction and built environment sector charity which raises funds to improve prevention, detection and treatment of cancer and support industry workers dealing with the impact of cancer. Over £2,500 was raised, thanks everyone!

Entertainment included a magician plus a caricaturist and the night was presented by Anna Thompson, Head of Business Development at LABC.

"These awards are different. They aren’t about good looks or fancy design (although many winners incorporate both). They are about quality and standards. No other building awards look at how well buildings are put together from start to finish and the skills and competencies of those who design and construct them. We are very proud of everyone involved – they show the way ahead for the industry."
Paul Everall CBE, Chief Executive at LABC
