The Federation of Master Builders

Midland & South West Master Builder Awards

The South West and Midland regions came together to celebrate their awards at the impressive Warwick Castle. The location was ideal for honouring the calibre of this year’s entries and winners, with the 2017 Awards having been the fiercest and most highly entered Master Builder Awards yet. Before the ceremony attendees were treated to a fantastic private tour around the castle grounds, learning about the chequered (and bloody) history of the castle and its many owners.

Awards were presented by Gary Lewis, National President of the FMB, who was impressed with the winning projects. The winners of each category will now go forward to the National Finals in September, with the chance of taking home the coveted title of Master Builder 2017. Pictures from the evening can be seen here.
