Shining examples of excellence in building design and construction across North Kesteven are being put forward for regional awards.

Building on North Kesteven District Council’s own Building Control Awards, all eight projects will now compete in the regional Local Authority Building Control awards this summer, which honour designers, developers and builders.

NK Building Control Unit manager Paul Weldon said: “It is easy to be blasé about it, but as a council we want to recognise the real stars, celebrate innovation and excellence and to show the appreciation of residents for good buildings which make a positive difference in making North Kesteven a great place to live.”

Among the award winners were: Best educational building - for Branston Community Academy extensions and alterations carried out by Newman Moore of Sleaford. Best social or affordable housing development - for Northfield Road, Ruskington, 13 new homes built for NKDC designed by Chaplin Farrant, built by D Brown Construction. Best extension or alteration to an existing home - for 7 Leasingham Lane, Ruskington, designed by Rick Smith and built by Roy Fraser. Best new housing development (Large) – Winton Rd, Navenby, nine detached bungalows designed by Barrie Williams Design and built by NDC Group.

The unit is already looking out for examples of good practice to put forward for awards in 2015.
