Construction projects in Telford delivered in partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council have scooped plaudits at a glittering awards ceremony celebrating building excellence.

Telford & Wrekin Council’s Building Control team worked closely with architects, construction companies, sub-contractors, and housing associations on a number of schemes recognised in the Midlands final of the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Regional Building Excellence Awards 2017.

The team nominated six development schemes and two builders for the awards, the largest business-to-business awards in the building control sector, which were held at Telford International Centre in June.

A residential home extension in Leese Close, Telford, was highly commended in the Best Extension or Alteration category and the Oakwood Extra Care Facility in Wellington received the same accolade in the Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development.
Dave Franklin, from McPhillips in Wellington, was the winner of the Residential Site Agent of the Year award and went forward to the London national final in November 2017.
