PCMS Design - 2017 LABC Awards

Staff of Haddenham-based architectural design and project management team PCMS Design attended the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Central Region Awards ceremony in Milton Keynes in early May. This awards dinner is held each year to recognise and celebrate the very best construction projects in the public sector in a number of different categories.

This year, PCMS Design was a finalist in two awards categories. The first was Best Public Service Building for its work on a new Community Pavilion for Chinnor Parish Council. This large mixed use building, which opened in early 2016, incorporates changing rooms, a social hub including function room as well as a new Parish Council office. Since opening, the Pavilion has become a very popular and well-frequented facility in Chinnor.

The second finalist nomination was Best Educational Project for the firm's design and project management of a new three classroom block on the site of Biggleswade Academy in Bedfordshire, with some facilities specially designed for pupils with physical and sensory difficulties. The PCMS design included a distinctive barrel-vaulted zinc roof and bright, cheerful interiors.

Staff were honoured to receive these nominations and to attend the ceremony with clients, contractors and building control representatives involved in each construction project.

PCMS Design has its offices on Thame Road, from where it offers architecture and project management services for businesses, public sector and residential clients.
