Companies Build for Success

Pembrokesire builders and designers were praised at the recent South Wales regional finals of the 2017 Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Excellence awards.

Entrants from Pembrokeshire won three awards at the event and were highly commended in a further three categories.

The builders represented Pembrokeshire following their success at the local awards.

Geraint Williams Building Contractor of Blaenffos won the South Wales award for the best local builder or traditional craftsman for various developments across Pembrokeshire.

Butler Wall Homes won the South Wales award for the best small new housing category for the Water’s Edge development at South Beach, Tenby.

BAM Nuttall Limited was also victorious on the night taking the award for best public service building for the new St Davids Lifeboat Station.

All three will now represent South Wales at the Welsh awards to be held in Cardiff later in the year.

The LABC awards were set up 14 years ago to help raise standards in the construction industry. They celebrate excellence achieved through high building standards, technical innovation and sustainable designs.
