The LABC Building Excellence Awards showcase buildings and design teams that have been faced with complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. In addition, the awards celebrate the success of innovative, creative solutions across the five regions in the South East: Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Event highlights

Altogether there were 14 winners and five highly commended projects and individuals – visit this page for the full list and pictures.

Some of the winning projects from the night included Noakes Meadow in Ashford (team pictured below), a property built to fully meet building regulations requirements regarding wheelchair user accessible dwellings (Part M4 (3)) and a cave at Greyfriars Vineyard in Surrey, built to store and age a quarter of a million bottles of wine.

Charity fundraising was for We Build the Future and donations amassed to over £3,300 thanks to a silent auction and cash donations. Thanks to everyone who donated! We Build the Future, a charity chosen by LABC President Dave Sharp, support people working in the construction and built environment sector who face the challenge of dealing with cancer in their lives.

Presented by LABC's Head of Business Development Anna Thompson.

Entertainment was provided by Sarah the silhouette artist, David a magician and the band Lipstick and Beatniks.

"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
