North Lincolnshire Council scooped two awards at the South Yorkshire and Humber Building Excellence Awards.
Winner of Winners at the ceremony was the council’s state-of-the-art Pods leisure centre after winning the award for Best Community Project.
The council was also a joint winner with C R Parrott Consultants Ltd in the category for Best Partnership with a Local Authority – a partnership that has seen more than 400 projects successfully completed.
An audience of 250 people representing the building industry from across the Humber and South Yorkshire region attended the awards ceremony at the Forest Pines Hotel near Scunthorpe on Thursday 19 April.
The awards recognise excellence in building and high standards of workmanship. There are 11 categories and building projects can range from small domestic extensions through to large-scale commercial buildings.
Winners are eligible for nomination in the National Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Awards held in London later in the year.
The event was sponsored by Sandtoft Tiles and Flamehold Fire Protection Solutions, together with national sponsors LABC New Homes Warranty, Local Authority Building Control Acoustics, Polypipe Terrain, Roger Bullivant and Sustainable Building Solutions.
Other North Lincolnshire projects that received highly commended awards, were:
Mr and Mrs Manaley for Endell Drive, Kirton Lindsey, in the Best Individual House category
Keigar Homes Ltd for The Orchard, Thorn Lane, Goxhill, in the Best Small Housing Development (2-10 units) category
T G Sowerby Developments Ltd for Maple Leaf Mews, Quebec Road, Bottesford, in the Best Small Housing Development (2-10 units) category
Mr and Mrs Asquith for The Old Mill, Melton Ross Road, Barnetby le Wold, in the Best Commercial Building under £1million category.
Cllr Nigel Sherwood, cabinet member for Highways and Neighbourhoods at North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“The evening was a huge success and enjoyed by all.
“With the event being held in North Lincolnshire for the third time, it was also a good opportunity to promote the area.
“The quality of the projects reflects the high standards of construction and design in the area. I would like to thank all the people that attended the event, the sponsors, the nominees and the winners.
“As well as rewarding these fantastic projects and developing awareness of Local Authority Building Control, the awards helped raise a healthy sum for the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. I hope next year’s event will be just as successful as this year, if not more so.”
