Awards success for local building projects

Awards success for local building projects

Three projects involving our building control team (Southern Building Control Partnership) won awards at the LABC SE Awards Finals held at the Grand Hotel in Brighton last week.

Nominations to these prestigious annual awards are carefully selected and submitted by council building control teams across the South East. Aimed at celebrating excellence in construction, innovation, standards of workmanship and team working, the awards help build stronger relationships with architects and contractor/developer clients, as well as raise the profile of building control.

Community project, Oakhall Church in Caterham, won the Best Public Service Building Award. Constructed on the site of a derelict office block, the building control team ensured the church’s plans for its new home met the building regulations and the requirements for access, fire and safety, as well as regularly monitoring work on site throughout the build. The new church building includes a large multi-use auditorium, office space, classrooms, accommodation and nursery together with ample parking. Contractors Westridge Construction and project managers Chawton Hill were commended for their high standards and proactive approach.

Others winners were:

  • Holly Bush View Oxted: A development of three executive homes designed and built by Croudace Portland. The site manager for this project was Highly Commended in the Construction Professional category for his role in the build.
  • The Mansion at Sondes Place, Dorking: A meticulous conversion of a Georgian mansion that had fallen into poor condition into luxury homes by Guy La Costa and his team at Twist.
