Somerset Building Control Partnership Building Excellence Award 2020

Somerset Building Control Partnership Building Excellence Award 2020

The 2020 Somerset Building Control Partnership Building Excellence Awards named YMCA Highbridge as the Best Large Commercial Project, in a win commended by principal contractor John Perkins Construction.

The awards celebrate construction projects and tradespeople across Sedgemoor, Mendip, Taunton Deane and West Somerset, where building control officers note instances of outstanding work.

The £3.1m YMCA Highbridge project saw the redevelopment of a Grade-II-listed hotel, which dated back to the 18th century but had been ravaged by fires and left derelict. The listed building restrictions remained in place and so the existing façade’s historical features were replicated, albeit within a modern and accessible building.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards 2018 – Most Considerate Site (£1-5m category)

Only one Most Considerate Site award is given out each year in the £1-5m size bracket, so it was a shock and an honour when Site Manager Hayden Pickett and the John Perkins team were recognised in such a significant way.

The winning project was the £2m+ extension and refurbishment of Hutton CE Primary School in Weston-super-Mare. John Perkins Construction was recognised for its community engagement, creative approach traffic management, and strength in getting the school’s students involved.
