Building Excellence Awards 2016

The PumpHouse Barry

The restoration of Barry’s historic Pumphouse has won the Building Excellence Awards 2016.


The Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards celebrate all that’s good in the construction industry. The awards aren’t really about aesthetics, instead they look for other vital elements in the creation of excellent buildings: outstanding craftsmanship, technical innovation, sustainability and high performance.

Loft-co are the pioneers of loft living and have re defined live/work spaces. This prestigious development has become Barry’s first purpose built live/work apartments in a truly iconic building. A number of the historic original features have been left to create inspirational living and working spaces. The development is brilliantly located for easy access into Cardiff City Centre, the M4 motorway and there will be bars, cafés, restaurants, shops, health and leisure facilities available within short walking distance.
