HOUSEBUILDER AWARDS 2020 - NEW ENTRY INFORMATION - PLEASE READ

In light of the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus crisis and in line with the majority of people’s current working situation, Housebuilder Media has taken several measures to make the entry process for the Housebuilder Awards simpler.  By postponing the deadline by a month to June 1st and allowing all entries to be emailed to us this year, we encourage everyone to take this opportunity and put forward their best examples of housebuilding excellence.

CALL FOR ENTRIES  - ENTRY DEADLINE POSTPONED  TO  JUNE 1st  2020

The Housebuilder Awards are the industry’s own awards, brought to you in association with the HBF and NHBC.

Success in these prestigious awards will enhance the reputation of your firm in the eyes of your customers, the government, Homes England and local authorities.
