Milton Keynes Council has won two prestigious honours at the LABC Building Excellence Awards for its work converting a barn and for the building of a new school.

The awards - held in Milton Keynes - saw the council’s Building Control Team take the Central region award category for ‘Best change of use of an existing building or conversion,’ for Granary Barn at Weston Underwood, and with the council’s Capital Team, also won the category for ‘Best education building’ for Brooklands Farm Primary School.
