Cromer Hospital scoops two building awards

Cromer and District Hospital has won in two categories in the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) East Anglia Building Excellence Awards.

The awards recognise projects that have been built to high standards and demonstrate innovation and sustainability in design. The hospital won in the two categories it was nominated for – technical innovation and community project. There were twelve categories covering various aspects of design, construction and use.

The ‘Community Projects’ award was presented to the hospital as the most impressive new, converted or refurbished community building completed in East Anglia that has been certified by LABC.

The ‘Technical Innovation’ award recognises organisations that have come up with a new or unusual way to overcome construction challenges.

Operations Manager, Helen Lloyd, and the Project Manager for the Cromer Hospital building project, Dale Jackson, attended the awards ceremony with representatives from Mansells, the contractors who completed the build.

Helen Lloyd, Operations Manager at Cromer and District Hospital said: “We understand it is the first time in the events history a building has won top prize in two separate categories! Mansells and the Trust are delighted and we’ll be putting copies of the winners certificate on display in the building.”

Norman Lamb, MP for North Norfolk, said: “I was delighted to hear the news of these well deserved awards. This is a fantastic new hospital in terms of the design of the building, the services it provides and the staff who work there.”

The building will now be entered into the LABC National Finals and the winners will be announced in a ceremony in the Autumn in London.
