The Build It Awards, in association with Buildstore, celebrates all aspects of self build and renovation – from the very best completed projects through to innovative products and outstanding service from suppliers.
Build It magazine’s annual awards scheme features over 25 categories, garnering hundreds of entries that cover every major aspect of a home building project.
So you’ll find everything from inspiring architecture and amazing real-life builds through to high-performance structural systems, glazing, heating & renewables, cladding options, smart home technology and more.
Three of the Build It Awards’ headline categories are open to a public vote by Build It readers and website users. The 2019 voting will open later this year.
Best Self Build Home or Renovation 2019
Best Self Build Architect or Designer 2019
Best Extension / Renovation Architect or Designer 2019
The remaining categories are decided by our judging panel, chaired by Build It magazine editor, Chris Bates. The judges scrutinise every entry in detail to create an exceptional shortlist, before ultimately casting their votes to crown individual category winners.
The Build It Awards 2019 winners will be announced at a gala ceremony in London in November, with simultaneously coverage online and on social media.
Full details of the winning projects, products and services will be published in the following edition of Build It magazine.
Our mission with the Build It Awards is to help you identify the very best products and services for your self build, home renovation, extension or conversion project.
The judges scrutinise everything from design and the level of support companies offer, through to performance, lifestyle benefits and value-for-money.
