Construction industry award for Storyhouse project

8 May 2018

A successful partnership involved in the construction of Storyhouse in Chester, including Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Building Consultancy team, Kier Construction and Ellis Williams Architects, has won regional recognition.   

The North West Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards saw Storyhouse in Chester win the extremely competitive ‘Best change of use of an existing building or conversion’ category.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “I’m delighted that the professional work of our Building Consultancy team has been recognised.

“This is a fantastic achievement. The LABC awards recognise excellent building and design and celebrate the results that can be achieved by designers, contractors and clients working closely with their local authority building consultancy team.” As a regional winner the project will now go through to the grand final – a flagship event in the industry’s calendar – which will take place in London in November this year.

If you would like Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Building Consultancy experts to be part of your development’s team please call Gary Shields, Building Consultancy Manager on 01606 288701 or email:
