The Broadway Centre is representing the Yorkshire Region in the grand finals of the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Awards in London on November 28.
Bradford Council’s Building Control Team are delighted that their work with the project team for the Broadway shopping centre clinched them the regional title for the Best Large Commercial Building.
There will be ten regions represented in the national finals including Yorkshire.
The awards recognise the excellent work by building control teams that work with building owners, home owners, architects, plan drawers, developers, building contractors and other professionals to ensure buildings are safe, healthy and efficient to meet the standards set by building regulations.
There are many categories for the awards such as best small and large new housing development, best small and large commercial development, best new individual new home and best extension or alteration to an existing home.
The Broadway development won the Yorkshire title for the quality of the building work and the excellent working relationship between the developers, architects and the Council’s Building Control team and officers from across the Department of Regeneration. This relationship continues in the work to further develop Broadway with restaurants and a multi-screen cinema.
Coun Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, said: “It’s really good to see our building control team be rewarded for all their hard work and dedication in bringing to fruition this amazing centre that has transformed the city centre’s shopping offer.”
Ian Ward, General Manager at The Broadway, said: “The Broadway has gone from strength to strength in the 12 months since it opened, due in no small part to our relationship with Bradford Council’s Building Control Team and their ongoing support.
“We are delighted to be representing the Yorkshire Region in the grand finals of the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Awards, and this nomination is testament to the hard work of the teams involved.”
