On Friday night Barnfield Construction hosted a table at the LABC North West Building Excellence Awards 2019 and we are delighted to pick up the Best Large Commercial Property ‘highly commended’ award for the Thwaites project!

Well done to all our partners and subcontractors who worked on the project.  Below is the official press release from the Local Authority Building Control (LABC):

The LABC North West Building Excellence Awards took place at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Friday 26 April 2019. A drinks reception was followed by welcome speeches, a three-course dinner and the awards ceremony.

The LABC Building Excellence Awards showcase buildings and design teams that have faced complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. The awards also celebrate innovative, smart solutions across the North West region of England.

Event highlights

On the night there was a total of 14 winners and 10 highly commended entries including Jodrell Bank (pictured below) which was a winner of the Best Large Commercial Project category. You can take a look at all of the award-winners on this page.

Fundraising at the event was for We Build the Future – LABC President Dave Sharp’s charity of choice for 2019. We Build the Future help workers in the construction sector beat cancer and they promote health and wellbeing in order to help reduce the risk of people developing cancer in the first place. £4,482 was raised in total including the money collection and silent auction. Well done to everyone who donated!

Entertainment included a band called Stringer Jones and the Bosstones who played during dinner and there were casino tables after the awards ceremony.

“These awards are different. They aren’t about good looks or fancy design (although many winners incorporate both). They are about quality and standards. No other building awards look at how well buildings are put together from start to finish and the skills and competencies of those who design and construct them. We are very proud of everyone involved – they show the way ahead for the industry.”

Paul Everall CBE, Chief Executive at LABC
