ASBP Awards 2021 – And the winners are…

Every year, the ASBP Awards aim to showcase exceptional commitment to delivering sustainability communicated through building projects. For the 2021 Awards we have taken a different approach, shining a light on transformative ideas and the people behind them.

We were delighted to showcase six fantastic finalists at the 2021 ASBP Awards online ceremony on Thursday 25th February, who had been whittled down by our judges from a stellar longlist of 12. We were delighted with the quality of submissions again this year and it was incredibly difficult for our judges to decide on the finalists and winners! We’d like to say a big thank you to all of our applicants for submitting an entry and hope to see a submission from you again next year.

The finals ceremony was a truly inspirational event, with a diverse line-up of finalists all seeking to address the climate emergency and the ASBP’s “Six Pillars of Sustainable Construction“, via the creation of forward-thinking initiatives, knowledge sharing, new guidance, circular business models and low carbon product solutions.

Our judges could not split their two favourites so awards were given to two entrants this year. Plus, our audience had their say and voted for the ‘People’s Prize’. You can check out the winners below!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Dylan Jones, Phoebe Oldfield and the @woodlabproject team for manufacturing the fantastic awards this year. The sculpture-like awards work on a theme of tension and balance, and are made from local Ash & Cherry from regional woodland thinnings.

Finally, thank you to our sponsors for supporting this year’s awards:

A message from Dylan Jones, Wood Lab Project –

“The 2021 ASBP Awards were made at the Caerphilly Borough Cwm a Mynydd timber project workshop based in Aberbargoed and funded through the Welsh Government RDP – @woodlabproject.

Working on the theme of tension and balance, the awards reflect on the past year through its construction and invites the winners to engage with the piece.

Made by project manager Dylan Jones and MA design student Phoebe Oldfield from local Ash & Cherry, these awards demonstrate what can be made from regional woodland thinnings.

Congratulations to this year’s winners and hope they will appreciate and enjoy!”
