Civicance Ltd, a wholly owned Cheshire East company, had 29 finalists in total across 15 different categories, more than any other authority in the North West region, with 3 overall winners and 2 Highly Commended.

This fantastic achievement highlights the commitment to Building Excellence in the area, and the benefit of strong reliable working relationship between industry professionals and Local Authority Building Control.

Managing Director Ian Bunn said: “Every year the contribution to the awards from the Cheshire East region demonstrates the quality of the area. Everyone involved shows a true commitment to build quality and deserves this recognition. Our local LABC team take great pride supporting each and everyone and wish everyone luck for the National awards”

Councillor Ainsley Arnold, cabinet member for housing, planning and regeneration, said: “This council recognises the high standards achieved by architects, designers and builders and it is fitting that those companies and individuals should also be recognised at regional and national level.

“I congratulate the winners and those short listed and say a big thank you to the Civicance team for the professionalism with which they manage building control and standards in this borough.”
