North West and Yorkshire & Trent Master Builder Awards

Ted Hughes scoops award

The North West and Yorkshire and Trent regions came together to celebrate their awards at Norton Grange Hotel in Rochdale. The lively and well attended ceremony 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 invited to attend the ‘Build Your Business, Build Your Community’ conference, where industry experts outlined the assistance available to SME house builders.

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. Photographs from the event can be found here.
