The Build It Awards celebrates the very best 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.
Every year we receive hundreds of outstanding entries and 2017 was no exception. 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, Best Self-Build Architect and Best Renovation / Extension Architect.
The winners of the 2017 Build It Awards, in association with BuildStore, were announced at a gala ceremony hosted by comedian Marcus Brigstocke.
