New market wins awards

Have your say

A NEW market building in a South Yorkshire town has swept the board at regional construction awards.

The new oak-framed Penistone market building achieved a series of honours at the South Yorkshire and Humber LABC Building Excellence Awards.

The building won first place in its class for best Community Project and the winner of winners award, selected as overall victor from all classes.

It was up against strong competition, including the £15.3 million Sheffield Crucible theatre refurbishment and the £18m Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience building in Broomhill.

It will now enter the national finals in London later this year.
