The Local Authority Building Excellence Awards

LABC Awards 2021

The LABC Building Excellence Regional Awards are the largest business to business awards in the building control sector.  They celebrate buildings and design teams that have overcome the challenges of complex technical and construction issues.  They put the spotlight on innovative and creative building work completed in their region.

LABC Awards 2021

Every year we are proud to nominate a small number of the best projects and people we have worked with to the LABC SE Awards.  The Awards celebrate not only great design and build standards but teamwork, compliance with building regulations and several other aspects of the project and the project team.

This year due to the pandemic the Awards took on a slightly different format. Instead of hosting the LABC SE Awards presentation at the Grand Hotel in Brighton, the judging took place virtually. LABC has now organised a grand final in London in January 2022, when all regional winners will be invited to attend to hear the national winners announced.

The results are in!

We are delighted that three of our nominees won their Award categories at the LABC SE Awards. All our winners deserved their place, which is testament to the quality and standards achieved by those involved. As a building control Partnership, we are proud to work with construction professionals who have a real passion for what they do and consistently achieve the highest standards. We will be crossing our fingers for everyone at the Grand Finals in January.
