House builders who have used BDA-member brick extensively across multiple UK residential developments may enter this category.
Alongside evidence of sound architecture and craftsmanship, the house builder must demonstrate outstanding contribution to the industry, evidenced by apprenticeships, training, quality assurance, sustainability and commitment to health and safety.
Three separate images, each an example of an individual project, must be submitted alongside a business description that accounts for the ways in which the business meets the above criteria.
Projects which constitute a clearly identifiable Phase of a larger scheme will be considered to be complete if, the Phase is fully accessible and habitable.
Projects must have been completed within the last three years, and substantially use BDA-member bricks.
This year the House Builder category is sponsored by Forterra.
Forterra is a leading UK manufacturer of a diverse range of trusted clay and concrete building products. From its nine brick manufacturing facilities, with a production capacity of over half a billion bricks a year, the company produces some of the industry’s best-known clay brick brands, including the original London Brick, Butterley, Ecostock and Cradley - products that have been used in the building of more than a quarter of Britain’s homes and some of its most iconic buildings.
The company is embarking on a significant project that will see its Desford plant become the largest and most efficient brick factory in Europe, deploying state of the art levels of automation to deliver market leading efficiency and sustainability.
