Build It Awards 2016 Winners: All the winners of this year's coveted Build It Awards

26th September 2016

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.
