The Bricks are less than a week away and we’re putting the final touches together to make this year our best award celebration yet.

On Wednesday 17th October we’ll be at Sushi Samba in London, celebrating the best in the house building industry. The Bricks recognises and rewards the exceptional work of developers, builders, contractors and housing associations who go the extra mile, regardless of size, to deliver quality in construction. Not forgetting the hard work and dedication of individuals behind the scenes also involved in the development projects.

Over 3,000 developments were eligible at the start of the nomination process and we can’t wait to meet, greet and congratulate the shortlisted finalists to The Bricks.
