West Yorkshire welcomes back the LABC Building Excellence Awards in 2019
The LABC West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards took place at the Cedar Court Hotel, Leeds/Bradford on Friday 7 June 2019. More than 200 guests attended from across the industry including representatives from Wates, Kier and Esh Construction.
The LABC Building Excellence Awards celebrate buildings and design teams that have faced complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. The awards reward the success of innovative, creative solutions across the West Yorkshire region:
- Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council
- City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council
- Kirklees Council
- Leeds City Council
- Wakefield Metropolitan District Council.
Winning projects this time round ranged from Empire Works (Best New Housing Development) and the Springfield Sixth Form Centre (Best Educational Building) to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (Best Commercial Project, pictured below). In total there were 21 winners and 3 highly commended projects and individuals – see the full list of award-winners on this page.
Fundraising on the night was for Yorkshire Air Ambulance – over £2,000 was raised on the evening. A big thanks to everyone that donated, your generosity is much appreciated!
LABC Deputy Chief Executive Lorna Stimpson presented the awards ceremony whilst comedian John Martin and magician Andy Taylor provided the entertainment.
"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
