A WHITCHURCH-based building company has won a regional award.

RS Burgess and Sons picked up the award for Best Individual New Home and came runners up in the ‘Best Local Builder’ in the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2019, held at the Telford International Centre on Friday, June 7.

There were over 200 guests in attendance from across the industry including teams from ProBuild 360, Shropshire Homes, Accord Housing Association and Lovell Partnerships.

Every year the LABC Building Excellence Awards showcase buildings and design teams that have faced complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints.

The awards also celebrate the success of innovative, smart solutions.

The night was presented by LABC Head of Network Change and Transformation Richard Scott and across the board there were 15 winners and 5 highly commended entries.

“It’s a real honour for us to win such a well-known and prestigious industry award especially against such stiff competition," said David Burgess, the managing director and owner of RS Burgess and Sons Ltd.

"It’s a testament to everyone involved from planning and design through to the final construction of the project.

“We could not have done it, if not for our amazing team and also Andy Hewitt and Rachel Saxty at ARH Architecture for the winning design.
