Neath Port Talbot Enjoys Success at Regional Building Award

A company based in Neath Port Talbot has come out top in the South Wales Regional Finals of the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2012.

The awards ceremony, hosted by television presenter Jason Mohammad, was held on Friday 20th April at The Vale Resort, Hensol.

It was announced that Seven Oaks Joinery, and its SupaWall panel system, had beaten off stiff competition in the category for Best Technical Innovation.  The SupaWall system was used by sister company Hale Construction in the recently completed development at Station Road in Port Talbot.

Paul Davis, Neath Port Talbot Council's Building Control Manager said: "The government has set very ambitious targets to reduce CO2 emissions in the construction industry.  It is increasingly difficult for developers to meet these targets using traditional methods of construction.  It is pleasing to see a local company leading the field in developing more sustainable methods of construction." 

He added "I would like to offer my congratulations to Seven Oaks on their achievement and wish them well for the national awards."

As winners of the South Wales Regional finals, Seven Oaks will now go onto represent both Neath Port Talbot and Wales at the National Finals to be held in London later this year.
