Wiltshire Council Building Control team wins national award
Wiltshire Council's Building Control team has won the Best Partnership with Local Authority Building Control award at the LABC Building Excellence Awards
Wiltshire Council's Building Control team has won the Best Partnership with Local Authority Building Control award at the LABC Building Excellence Grand Final, held in London on Friday 28 January.
The awards celebrate the achievements and building control work carried out by local authorities in the UK.
The team was recognised for its successful partnership with Aspire Defence since 2003, particularly their work together on two MOD contracts to provide new and enhanced service accommodation for troops. After a decade of success, the team has also worked on the return of troops from Germany to Wiltshire.
Nick Botterill, Cabinet Member for Development Control and Strategic Planning, said:
Well done to everyone on the team. They have built up a great relationship with Aspire Defence, which has led to 475 new buildings and 192 refurbished buildings being delivered across four garrisons, all delivered on time and within budget and to a high-quality standard.
It's great to get such fantastic recognition for all the amazing work our teams do, and we look forward to continuing this great partnership.
Lorna Stimpson, LABC Chief Executive said:
The strength of this partnership has been built on trust and respect and fostering a real team spirit to achieve success.
The team was also nominated for three other categories:
- LABC Warranty Site Manager of the Year
- Best Social Housing Development
- Best Non-Residential New Build
The Building Control team is available to give practical advice on how a development can meet building regulations, which are the legal minimum requirements for the design and construction of buildings. This helps to ensure the health and safety of those in and around buildings and prevents builders from operating using unsafe practices. For advice and support, people should call 0300 456 0113.
