Well done to all our winners in the Grand Finals 2019!
The LABC Building Excellence Awards Grand Finals took place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London on Friday 8 November 2019. 840 guests attended the black tie event which was hosted by multi award-winning comedian and Mock the Week regular Milton Jones.
The LABC Building Excellence Awards focus on the very best in technical innovation and construction quality, helping to raise the level of construction quality across England and Wales. Employing creative solutions in order to improve sustainability and energy efficiency and cooperative team working are examples of the criteria we use to choose which of our regional winners go on to win or earn a high commendation at these national construction awards.
There were 15 winners and three highly commended entries which were chosen by a panel of construction industry experts. Winning projects include Sherwood Forest RSPB Visitor Centre, the SS Great Britain in Bristol and Coal Drops Yard in King's Cross (pictured below). You can see all of the award winners here.
Attendees included representatives from Galliford Try, Kier, Make Architects, Morgan Sindall, ID Architecture and Willmott Dixon.
LABC's charity of the year, We Build the Future, who help support construction workers with cancer, will benefit from £5,000 raised on the night, bringing the total raised so far this year to £46,000. Thanks to everyone for your generous donations!
"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
