Ideas for a better built environment


it's been a difficult year...

The past 6 months have been a difficult time for us all, and the long-term effects of the Covid-19 crisis on our families, colleagues and wider industry are yet to be fully realised.

The situation, albeit unwanted, has presented many of us with an opportunity to re-assess our priorities and actions. There is hope within the climate movement that we will indeed ‘build back better’.

As proven by our diverse and pioneering membership, there are already many practical solutions out there to help solve the climate crisis. However, progressive thinking and radical ideas are required at all levels, from policy to grassroots, to accelerate the transition to net zero.

We need to utilise the innovate thinkers, the can-doers and get people on board with the energy and know-how to get things done. If we can do this, then we can continue to build on the momentum for change that has been growing over the past few years.


Every year, the ASBP Awards aim to showcase exceptional commitment to delivering sustainability communicated through building projects.

For the 2021 Awards we are taking a different approach.

We want to shine the light on transformative ideas and the people behind them. Ideas for which the time has come. In essence, we want to showcase your lockdown epiphanies, personal insights, innovative idea, or radical action. Whatever you plan to do differently post-Covid-19 that did not seem possible or appropriate before.


To apply, share your insight with us in no more than 250 words of text.

Applicants’ ideas will be judged by the ASBP Board and the shortlisted entrants will be asked to record a short video which will be compiled into a promotional video and shared widely (so no patentable innovations please!).

We would like your contribution to be framed withing the aspirations of the ASBP’s “Six Pillars of Sustainable Construction”. The winning contribution will be asked to present at the ASBP’s Healthy Buildings Conference and Expo 2021 in February next year.



Since the ASBP Awards launched in 2019, we’ve had 12 fantastic finalists and a number of winning projects in all shapes and sizes. We’ve also given awards to innovative building products and systems referenced in the awards submissions.
