Neath based Hale Construction has beaten off stiff competition to come out on top of the pile at a recent building industry awards.

The Local Authority Building Control (LABC) South Wales Building Excellence awards were held on Friday 17th April at the Vale Resort in The Vale of Glamorgan.

Jonathan Hale, Managing Director at Hale Construction said:

“We strive to deliver an exceptional product for our customers, and we are thrilled that these efforts have been recognised by LABC once again.”

Hale Construction was named as overall winners in the category of “Best LABC Partnership” for a range of developments delivered across South Wales.

Paul Davis, Building Control Manager at Neath Port Talbot, said:

“Hale Construction has been a commercial partner of ours for some years. They always deliver a quality product and are committed users of the LABC Partner scheme which allows them to submit all their applications for Building Regulations approval to Neath Port Talbot for their work, wherever it is based in England or Wales.”

Jonathan Hale added “The LABC Partner scheme makes perfect sense to us. Our work is approved and inspected by local authorities, but importantly, as a local company we are able to use a local building control team for our Building Regulations applications. We have one point of contact and the whole process is seamless.”

Nicola Pearce, Head of Planning at Neath Port Talbot said:

“The LABC Partner scheme model is one of collaboration that many other service areas should take note of. Through collaborative working, a Neath based company has worked with Neath Port Talbot as the lead authority and has been able to deliver quality affordable housing across South Wales.”

As winners, Hale Construction will now go forward to compete in the national awards to be held later in the year.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
