Martin Weavers has won the regional round of the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Site Supervisor of the Year Award after being nominated by North Norfolk District Council.

Martin works for Norfolk Homes and was recognised for his outstanding work as site supervisor during work for 145 dwellings in Roughton Road, Cromer in partnership with NNDC.

Cllr Sue Arnold Cabinet Member for planning policy said: “Our building team was incredibly impressed by Martin: the way he understood the facets of the job, the potential and actual challenges and his consideration of the bigger picture. His positive and can-do attitude was noted by everyone who worked with him.

“This is a well-deserved award and we can only wish Martin the very best of luck as he now goes through to the national awards later this year.”

The LABC East Anglia Building Excellence Award for Site Supervisor of the Year recognises an individual who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure an outstanding working relationship with the local authority. Included in the criteria for the award there must be evidence of build quality and control on site; evidence of technical awareness, good communication and management of safety; and evidence of particular issues or problems resolved.

Martin received his award at a ceremony in Cambridge in June and will now go through to the national awards in London which will be held at The Westminster Park Plaza on 28 November 2016.

Another NNDC-nominated project, Church Farm Barn, Ingham was a finalist in the regional Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion category. The barn, owned by David and Debra Ames, was restored and converted to a high standard by local builders G J Allard & Son, retaining many original features yet incorporating modern technology in the form of a ground source heat pump and insulation.
