The East Midlands Local Authority Building Control (LABC) building excellence awards 2016 are set to take place on Friday 10th June at the Athena in Leicester.
We are proud to have been selected as a finalist for the Best Educational Building Category, for the completion of Phase 1 of Riseholme Campus, a part of Bishop Burton College.
The project, completed in August 2015, involved the construction of a new educational campus, adjacent to the Lincolnshire Showground. Three buildings were constructed consisting of an Innovation Centre, Animal Science Centre and Workshop. External works were also carried out to form roads, car parking and paving as well as works in respect of hard and soft landscaping.
The scheme was secured as a result of Hobson & Porter’s long-standing relationship with Bishop Burton College, having successfully completed a number of previous projects. Since its completion, the business has also commenced work to deliver phase two of the scheme.
The ongoing collaborative relationship between the two firms has gone from strength to strength over the years, resulting in valuable two-way partnerships in construction and education.
The LABC Building Excellence Awards are aimed at recognising and celebrating all that’s good in the construction industry, taking account of multiple types of building projects of different sizes.
Particular attention is paid to outstanding craftsmanship, technical innovation, sustainability and high performance. Consideration is also given to the formation of special working relationships with LABC surveyors in respect of solving technical problems, using innovative products and creating new solutions.
The team at Hobson & Porter looks forward to the awards ceremony, anticipating a great evening for all attending. The winning projects for the East Midlands region will be shortlisted for the LABC Grand Finals, scheduled to take place in London later this year.
