East Devon projects shortlisted for Building Excellence awards

Every year the LABC SW Region holds the Building Excellence Awards which celebrates the best construction projects from around Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset. There are several different categories ranging from best new house and best new conversion to best new commercial project and best accessible building.

The judging process examines the quality of the design and construction including how any site or design difficulties were overcome and the extent of any technical or design innovation incorporated into the build. Nominations also need to demonstrate that they worked closely with their Local Authority Building Control team to ensure excellent levels of compliance and each application must be endorsed by their local Building Control team.

This year the following projects have been shortlisted for the South West finals :

Best small housing development - East View Cottages, High Street, Honiton

Best high volume new housing development - Horizon, Budleigh Salterton

Best social or affordable new housing development - Horizon, Budleigh Salterton

Best individual new home - Lyme Bay House, Beer

Best inclusive building - Windsor Square, Exmouth

Winners from each category are automatically entered into the LABC National Awards.

The awards have grown over recent years to become a hugely popular event bringing valuable opportunities for nominees to showcase their projects, network and market their businesses.

This year the awards ceremony is taking place on Friday 1 July at:

Holiday Inn
Armada Way
Plymouth, PL1 2HJ
