E G Carter & Co Ltd were delighted to be shortlisted for the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2019. The event took place at the Crowne Plaza Plymouth on Friday 24 May 2019 and had over 350 guests come through the doors representing many companies across the industry.

The LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards showcase buildings and design teams that have faced challenges such as complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. The awards also call attention to innovative, smart and creative solutions that have been implemented in building projects in the South West.

Paul Everall CBE, Chief Executive at LABC said "These awards are different. They aren’t about good looks or fancy design (although many winners incorporate both). They are about quality and standards. No other building awards look at how well buildings are put together from start to finish and the skills and competencies of those who design and construct them. We are very proud of everyone involved – they show the way ahead for the industry."

E G Carter & Co Ltd had three housing projects shortlisted in the awards for Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development. They were:

  • Land at Northwick Road,Mark
  • Olivier Close, Burnham On Sea
  • Land at Rhode Lane, Bridgwater

Sadly, none of these projects won but to be shortlisted was a huge achievement.

Phil Barnes, Associate Director said “Even though we didn’t win the award for Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development we are delighted to have three schemes shortlisted for this category. Not only does this recognition highlight the hard work and commitment of the project teams, it demonstrates that we are consistently delivering homes to be proud of. We would like to say a big thank you to the team for their hard work”.

In total there were 15 winners and 10 highly commended entries.
