FROM the grand height of Grimsby’s Victoria Mills to the grass roots of Winterton Town FC, nine properties from northern Lincolnshire are vying for regional recognition.
The Humber and South Yorkshire Local Authority Building Control Building Excellence Awards return for 2018, with Forest Pines Hotel at Broughton home once again for the gala dinner celebration.
Projects from the South Bank are included in eight of the categories.
GS Kelsey, recognised for business excellence at the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce’s Northern Lincolnshire Business Awards in 2017, leads the way with three projects.
The company led by Matthew Robinson is up for Best Inclusive Building for Brigg Recreation Ground; Best Small Commercial Building for Winterton Town and Best Social of Affordable new Housing Project for Andrew’s Lane in Grimsby.
The latter is five contemporary homes for Shoreline Housing Partnership on a former garage site off Cromwell Road.
In that category it is pooled with fellow Scunthorpe business TG Sowerby’s six-home development for Ongo at Parkwood Avenue, on Westcliff.

More residential developments are included in the shortlisting with Keystone Architecture up for Best Individual New Home with 7A Church Street, Epworth; MF Developments nominated for
Best Small New Housing Development in Colton Street, Brigg and RW and JR Brooks for Bradley’s Manor Farm Mews in the Best 11 to 20 New Housing Development category.
Scartho’s Topcon Construction is shortlisted for Best Education Building for the new sixth form facility at Havelock Academy in Grimsby, with Engie’s complex overhaul of the recent North East Lincolnshire Council acquisition, Grade II listed Victoria Mills, in for Best Large Commercial Building. A £2.1 million investment has safeguarded the silo for decades to come after it was abandoned by the former owner and was declared unsafe two years ago, in with emergency measures invoked which led to residents of adjoining flats being evacuated.
Keiger Homes and Hyde Architecture are in the running for Best Partnership with a Local Authority Building Control Team.
Winners will be announced at the black tie event on Friday, May 18.
