Housebuilder Product Awards 2015

Housebuilder Product Awards 2015

The Housebuilder Product Awards 2015 winners and highly commended were announced at a gala lunch at Edgbaston Stadium on Thursday 25th June.

The winners were announced on June 25 of the Housebuilder Product Awards 2015, recognising excellence and innovation in the products and services supplied to the housebuilding industry.

The victors were named in nine categories at a lunchtime ceremony at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, appropriately hosted by cricket commentary legend Henry Blofeld.

Best brand new product was won by Ripstaal UK’s Klick and reveal board which enables the easy forming of right angle corners in paper faced plasterboards without disturbing the original paper face of the board.

Hanson’s New Jetfloor won the Best building fabric product while NHBC’s foundation depth calculator was named the Best site product.

Other winners include James Hardie Industries, Polypipe Ventilation, Donaldson Timber Engineering, SIG Insulation, British Sugar Topsoil and Hotpoint.

Full details are in the July/August edition of Housebuilder magazine


The nine winners go forward as finalists in this year’s Housebuilder Awards to be held at The Tower Hotel in London on Thursday November 5.


Congratulations to all winners and highly commended.
