Slough Borough Council picked up three building gongs at the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) excellence awards.

The Curve, the council’s iconic flagship library and cultural centre was named ‘Best public service building’ at the central region awards ceremony in Milton Keynes. It was built by Slough Urban Renewal, the partnership between the council and Morgan Sindall.

Dharmesh Modi, from Morgan Sindall, took home a site agent of the year award for his role in The Curve.

Bidvest Food Service won a ‘highly commended’ for the best large commercial building.

Regional winners in each category have been automatically shortlisted for the LABC national awards.

Councillor Zaffar Ajaib, commissioner for housing and urban renewal, said: “We are absolutely delighted The Curve has been recognised as the best public service building in the region.

“The Curve has transformed the town centre of Slough and has triggered further regeneration as well as providing fantastic services for the community in a truly state of the art facility.”

Andy Howell, SUR general manager added: “The SUR team is delighted that this truly impressive and ultramodern building is providing a great space for the community and local business. We look forward to it featuring in the national awards in November.”
