Finalists have been announced for the Housebuilder Awards 2017.

The Housebuilder Awards are the industry’s own awards brought to you by Housebuilder magazine, the Home Builders Federation (HBF) and in partnership with NHBC.

Now in their 13th year, The Housebuilder Awards recognise innovation and excellence and have become the most coveted in the industry.

Success in these prestigious awards enhances a company's reputation in the eyes of customers, the government, the Homes and Communities Agency and local authorities. With the planning system encouraging communities to have more say on who builds what in their area, tangible demonstrations of housebuilding excellence and quality are more important than ever. A Housebuilder Award provides that.

Winners will be announced at a glittering black tie event on Thursday 2 November at the InterContinental London - The O2.

The hotel stands out in the buzzing Greenwich Peninsula, enjoying spectacular Canary Wharf views and the O2 arena just steps away.

All finalists have priority booking until tickets go on general release on Monday 17 July.

Demand is high for this 'must attend event' so book now to guarantee your place.
