Regional success for local building projects
07 June 2016
High quality construction work carried out in Bridgend County Borough has been recognised at the South Wales regional Local Authority Building Control Awards.
The new Celtic Court health and wellbeing centre in Tremains Road, Bridgend, won the accolade for ‘Best inclusive building’ in recognition of it being fully accessible for any wheelchair users, and it will now go forward to be considered for national honours at the Welsh leg of the awards which will be held later this year.
A second project – the construction of two new homes at The Retreat in Porthcawl – had been shortlisted in the ‘Best small new housing’ category and was highly commended.
Councillor Ceri Reeves, Bridgend County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “The LABC Building Excellence Awards recognise the workmanship and technical innovation that goes into constructing buildings of an outstanding standard.
“All of the construction projects that won honours at our own Bridgend County Borough building excellence awards in March were considered at these regional awards and I would like to congratulate everyone involved with Celtic Court. It is an outstanding new building that meets customer needs and it will be a strong contender at the national awards in October.”
