More success in regional building awardsPublished Friday 20 July 2018
The district council and building industry professionals are celebrating after scooping an accolade at a prestigious awards event.
The LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Building Excellence East Midlands awards, held on Friday 6 July 2018 at the Athena conference centre in Leicester and hosted by TV and radio presenter Nicki Chapman, saw one of Harborough District Council’s nominations recognised by the judges.
Winner in the category of the Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development was Billesdon Sheltered Accommodation which involved the combined talents of Pelham Architects and Geda Construction (pictured with their award).
The award recognised the project’s collaborative approach and how it complemented the existing character of the area.
It was one of four nominations put forward by Harborough District Council for this year’s LABC awards.
Aaron Hughes, general Manager at Geda Construction, said: “We are delighted that this scheme has received the recognition it deserved for its high quality design and construction. A great team effort by all involved and rightfully recognised.”
Cllr Jonathan Bateman, Harborough District Council's portfolio holder for environment and regulatory services said: “Congratulations to all involved in this stand-out project; this is a brilliant result and builds on our successes in these awards in previous years.”
