Building & Design Quality Awards 

In January 2000 we introduced our Building and Design Quality Award Scheme. We felt it was time that local builders and developers working in the Bath & North East Somerset area should receive recognition of the high standards of workmanship and project management our surveyors see everyday. It was important that excellence in the design of buildings was also recognised and hence the scheme incorporates a design award.

Both the Building and Design awards cover different categories of building and types of work, such as domestic extensions, commercial/public buildings, works to a listed building and new housing.

Building Quality Award - This scheme rewards those builders who work to the highest standards, taking into account important matters such as health and safety, compliance with building regulations and customer satisfaction. Building Control Surveyors will make additional notes when they make their normal inspections to ascertain if a project is suitable for an award. The winners will receive their award at a ceremony held each year.

Design Quality Award - Suitable projects submitted to the Council's Building Control Section will be chosen for short listing by officers from the section. Schemes may also be put forward by the owners and/or agents submitting projects and by members of the public. An independent, and suitably qualified panel will carry out short listing and final judging. As with the Building Quality award, an award ceremony will be held annually.

We would like to thank the BATH STONE GROUP for sponsoring the awards.

Previous winners from the past few years can be viewed below.

If you have any queries or wish to nominate a scheme please contact Philip Mansfield, Group Manager Building Control. Tel: 01225 477541 or email building_control@bathnes.gov.uk  

The only qualifying criteria for entry into the years awards are that the scheme has the benefit of a Bath & North East Somerset Council building regulation application and that the scheme will be complete by the end of October.
