Enter and celebrate the best in the most sustainable structural solution

The 2015 Structural Timber Awards were hailed a great success by industry leaders and innovators from across the timber construction sector and the 2016 event is set to build on this success. With two new additional award categories and a judging panel made up of renowned industry experts - organisers are preparing to receive a record number of entries as the awards grow in recognition and prestige.

The awards provide one of the most effective platforms for targeting the timber industry, presenting the ideal opportunity to maximise industry exposure and penetrate this economically important market. The Structural Timber Awards will reward outstanding projects, innovative products and dynamic people - all promoting excellence in structural timber across the UK. Across key sectors of construction, the Awards will showcase innovation, celebrate best practice and recognise expertise in timber technology and the ways it contributes to an attractive, energy efficient and sustainable built environment. The 2016 Awards will be presented at a high profile dinner on 19 October 2016 at The National Conference Centre, Birmingham.
