Telford-based builder M&S Taylor has been announced as the winner of the LABC West Midlands Building Excellence Awards for their three-bedroom home built in Newport. The scheme was praised for the quality of the work and the way the builders worked with the buildings regulations officers and were always on hand to answer questions. 

Additionally, Dave Fletcher of Morris Property in Shropshire has been named as the construction professional of the year for a non-residential project for a factory scheme in Telford. Judges felt that Fletcher stood out as he managed to balance the needs of the client with complying with the building control requirements while showing excellent building practice overall.
