Neil Read, Building Control Group Leader at Cornwall Council, said: "Cornwall’s nominations for the awards this year were chosen from the many high quality projects which were built in conjunction with the Council’s Building Control team, and to be shortlisted is recognition that the project is completed to the highest standard. We always work closely with our customers to provide the assistance required to deliver successful projects and then reward the results.”

Award sponsors Home and Build, FMB, InstaGroup, Jewson, Polypipe Terrain, TLX, LABC Acoustics and LABC Warranty presented trophies to the winners, who were drawn from more than 200 nominations. Architects, designers and contractors, including large and small developers endorsed by respective local authority building control teams, were among the nominees.

It was a fantastic night, made all the better due to fact that Cornwall Council Building Control nominations scooped 2 winners and 2 highly commended awards.

The awards acknowledge the essence of good buildings and demonstrate the strong partnership between Building Control and customers in a positive way to innovate and provide creative solutions.
