Brilliant building at the West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards!

West Yorkshire winners Building Excellence Awards

The West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards 2018 took place last Friday night in the Cedar Court Leeds/Bradford Hotel 2018.

Local authority building control employees celebrated alongside construction professionals, designers and architects at this glittering event hosted by LABC's own Lorna Stimpson.

Why have the LABC Building Excellence Awards?

The awards recognise excellently constructed buildings from a technical point of view - they are not necessarily given to the "prettiest" building, although some of our finalists' buildings are beautiful as well as technically brilliant.

We appreciate the technical challenges construction and design teams face and these awards celebrate how they've faced up to and overcome them thanks to great working partnerships and technical know-how.

Winners this year ranged from a timber-framed chalet style individual home to the restoration of the stunning Georgian Grade I-listed cloth hall, Piece Hall.

LABC's Chief Executive Paul Everall said, "The awards are an opportunity for us to celebrate some of the very best in construction in England and Wales, recognising the high level of quality and skill we can and do reach in the UK."
