The Beach residences and Premier Inn building in Worthing has won an award.

The Beach Hotel & Residences, home to the new Premier Inn and a range of luxury apartments on Worthing’s seafront, took home the accolade for Best High Volume Housing Development in the LABC Building Excellence Awards on Friday.

The project was delivered in partnership by Westbrooke Developments Ltd, ECE Architecture Ltd and Roffey Homes.

Adur and Worthing Building Control Partnership managed the project’s building control.

Jane Eckford, director for customer service at Adur and Worthing councils, said: “This is a fabulous achievement for our seafront, and particularly for the council’s building control team. Bringing a nationally recognised hotel brand to Worthing was a win in itself and we can take great pride in having the wider development commended. The team are very dedicated to working with developers to achieve our joint ambitions for the town. We’d like to send our congratulations to Westbrooke, ECE and Roffey Homes.”

The award comes in the South East regional category, with the winners progressing to compete nationally against winners from other parts on the country.

The Building Excellence Awards focus on the vital elements that create excellent buildings, such as technical innovation, sustainability and performance, as well as working relationships which produce creative solutions.

Nominated for Best Individual New Home: Byde a Wee, Mill Lane, Worthing (RDA Construction Sussex Ltd, P B Properties)

Nominated for Best Small New Housing Development: Ship Street, Shoreham (Bramber Construction, James Breckell Architects)
