Gloucester firm wins award for creating charity base

The conversion and extension of a property for the Barnwood Trust charity has been awarded the best small commercial project at the Local Authority Building Control West of England Awards.

The £3million refurbishment at Overton House in Cheltenham was carried out by Gloucester construction company EG Carter & Co to provide headquarters for the mental health and disability charity.

It included the demolition of a 1970s extension to the Victorian villa and large-scale structural alterations to create a fully accessible facility and workspace.

EG Carter associate director Mark Harries said: "We are extremely proud to have been awarded the prize of West of England LABC best small commercial project.

"This type of award demonstrates great design and fantastic quality in construction and can only be achieved by a collaborative effort by the entire project team."

The virtual awards ceremony considered not only the visual impact, but the challenges in meeting or exceeding building regulations, outstanding craftsmanship, innovation and problem solving, sustainability and high performance, site and project management and inclusivity.
