The first ever Making Better Homes Awards have been created by Jewson to celebrate the incredible work that our industry is doing to build more sustainably.

From eco-friendly new builds to making existing homes more energy efficient, we are recognising those who are helping shape a greener future.

The winner of each category will receive a trophy and £1,000 in Jewson credit with runners-up getting £250 in Jewson credit.

There is still time to vote for your favourites, here are a few images to whet your appetite…


The Paddocks is nominated for Best use of renewable energy in a project. Field View is a new build family home designed with sustainability in mind.


Nominated for Best building fabric in a project, Peckham House in South London is a cost-conscious but design-led overhaul of a dilapidated 1950’s house. Cost effective and hard-wearing ‘self-finished’ materials were priorities for the build.

The stunning Harris hideaway (pictured, below) on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides is in the running for Best sustainable project of the year. The grand-design holiday home with great eco-credentials melts into its beautiful surroundings.


Munoz House is shortlisted for Best building fabric in a project. The large contemporary house used unconventional methods to help keep costs lower. An imported Columbian staircase and recycled coffee husk and plastic decking helped increase its eco friendly nature.
