PCMS Shortlisted for LABC 2014 Building Excellence Award

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

 High Res Photo from Awards Ceremony IMG_2213We are delighted to have been in the running once more for a Central Region LABC Building Excellence Award, reaching the top four in the educational projects category.

LABC is a member organisation representing local authority building control officers in England and Wales, and each year they run a series of regional awards to recognise high quality design and construction work.

This is the third year running that PCMS Design has been nominated for an award. Two years ago, our design and project management of a first floor extension to The Lawns in Biggleswade appeared in the ‘Best Sustainable Building’ category, and last year’s entry in the ‘Best Educational Building’ category was for the creation of a new reception classroom for Laburnum Lower School in Sandy.

This year, PCMS Design was once again nominated in the ‘Best Educational Building’ category for the design and project management of a new single storey free-standing reception classroom building at Southill Lower School near Biggleswade. The School is in a Conservation Area, and therefore had to follow strict design guidelines on a site with limited space. The attractive brick and tile building has high levels of insulation and is easy to run and maintain.

The awards event took place at Jury’s Inn, Milton Keynes on 16th May when the achievements of local firms striving for excellence in construction projects were recognised.
