LABC North West Winners & Highly Commended 2023

News
North West Awards 2023
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 trades people who go the extra mile because of the pride they have in their work.
Lorna Stimpson, LABC
