We were extremely pleased to receive a notification from LABC that our recently completed Park Lane project has been shortlisted for ‘Best Individual New Home’ in regional LABC Building Excellence Awards 2017 – click here for further details


The LABC Building Excellence Awards reward excellent buildings, outstanding companies, and partnerships and individuals that go that extra mile.

Projects are judged on:

  • High levels of compliance with building regulations
  • Effective working relationships with LABC surveyors
  • Outstanding craftsmanship
  • Technical innovation
  • Sustainability and high performance
  • Ability to solve technical problems with creative solutions
  • Use of innovative products and the skills to overcome difficult site conditions

Our project was conceived as a near-zero-carbon dwelling and we worked hard to produce a design that satisfied our clients desire to have a modern, sustainable home, within the constraints the site presented us; these ranged from the Green Belt cutting across the site, the site bordering a conservation area to having a historic stone dwelling in close proximity and contending with an incredibly high water table during construction.

Chloe Ellison of LABC remarked that ‘competition has been stronger than ever this year and being shortlisted is a great accomplishment’.

We have our fingers crossed for our clients that the project will win the regional award and go on to be entered into the Grand Finals later in the year. It is recognition of the time, effort and expense that they have invested into building their new home.

If you are thinking about building your own home please get in touch for some friendly advice on planning, designing and creating a project that will exceed all your expectations – it may even win an award one day …
