“Events such as this are important as they recognise and
showcase superior design and workmanship and this undoubtedly helps
to raise standards in the construction industry. I was delighted
that the event was so well supported again this year.
“The standard of entry for these awards is always high. I would
like to congratulate everyone who was nominated as this in itself
is a great achievement and testament to the quality of their work.
I would also like to offer my best wishes to the winners when they
represent Neath Port Talbot in the Welsh regional finals.”
Paul Davis, Building Control Manager at Neath Port Talbot
“The construction industry does not always attract positive
media coverage, so it is pleasing to see our industry in Neath Port
Talbot come together to celebrate excellence achieved in the last
year. These awards are for everyone, with nominations ranging from
local builders through to national contractors.”
The event, held at The Towers Hotel and Spa, was hosted by local
celebrity Kevin Johns and sponsored by local companies Greenbuild
Consult, Vale Consultancy, Solar Plants and Nolan Windows.
