15 schemes from the Yorkshire region are through to the 2018 LABC Building Excellence Awards Grand Final in London, one of the most recognised events on the building industry’s calendar.

The Yorkshire judging panel had a difficult job selecting the final nominees from the North and East Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards, the South Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards and the West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards.

The judges looked at attention to detail and evidence of a positive working relationship with Building Control.  Robert Harper said “This year’s awards saw some exceptional quality, very interesting and carefully designed projects. It’s great to see this event grow each year and for the nominations to attract recognition at both local and national level to celebrate the quality of work that is evident in North and East Yorkshire and throughout the Yorkshire region”

The awards are an opportunity for the industry to celebrate good practice. Winners demonstrate how positive working relationships with local authority building control teams achieve high quality, sustainable buildings. The awards are unique because they recognise how this cooperation improves building standards and professionalism across the industry.

The schemes which were selected from North and East Yorkshire are:

Best extension or alteration to an existing house – The Old Vicarage, Felixkirk
Best individual new home – Potterhill, Coulton
Best change of use – Atcost House, Thornton le Clay
Best Public Service Building – Spurn Point Visitor Centre
Best inclusive building – The Dairy, Eastburn Farmhouse, Leyburn
Best commercial building scheme – RNLI, Bridlington

The Grand Finals will take place on Friday 9 November 2018 at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel, London.  We wish all the nominees from our region the very best of luck!
