The LABC Building Excellence Awards are all about the essence of good buildings.
The finalists are not judged on architectural beauty, but on the "Excellence" shown from a construction and technical building control point of view. The awards recognise not just buildings but celebrate their design and construction teams that have overcome technical issues, difficult sites and found innovative and creative solutions.
Architectural photographer David Millington was commissioned by Eric Wright Construction to photograph both the projects. The architects for St. Mary's College and Great Harwood Health Centre were IBI Nightingale.
