Build It Awards 2016 logo

Each year the Build It Awards celebrates the latest and greatest self build and renovation projects in the UK, as well as rewarding excellence and innovation amongst the products and services available to self builders and renovators.

As always, we received a raft of outstanding entries this year. The judging panel, consisting of Build It magazine editor Chris Bates and a range of industry experts, whitled down the submissions to produce a shortlist and finally the winners you see below.

The key categories were voted for by Build It magazine's readers and website users, including Best Self Build or Renovation Project and Best Self Build Architect.

The winners of the 2016 Build It Awards, in association with BuildStore, were announced at a gala ceremony hosted by comedian Tim Vine.
