A North Kesteven District Council (NKDC) spokesman said its ‘commitment for excellence extends to ensuring the highest levels of safety and quality within the built environment’.

Through the Building Control Unit, NKDC works to ensure health and safety of all people in and around buildings, their welfare and convenience, and promotes energy efficiency and full accessibility to all.

Presenting the awards on the night was Coun Richard Wright, leader of NKDC. He said: “It’s great to celebrate the hard work and dedication builders, architects and owners put into projects supported by our Building Control Unit and to celebrate the examples of building excellence across North Kesteven.”
