The finalists of the 4th annual ASBP Awards have been announced, with 9 entrants invited to present at a ‘hybrid’ awards ceremony, taking place on Thursday 17th February at the EDGE Showroom in London and online on Zoom.
The competition was particularly strong this year and our judges had the unenviable task of reducing the longlist of 26 to just 9 finalists. We would like to say a huge thank you to all those that took the time to enter. Click here to find out more about all the fantastic entries longlisted this year.
The 2022 ASBP Awards are our biggest yet, with entries welcomed across three categories including exemplary sustainable building projects, innovative products and forward-thinking initiatives. Submissions were judged by members of the ASBP Board, who have expertise from across the construction industry, and assessed against the ASBP’s “Six Pillars of Sustainable Construction”.

However, if you are unable to join us live on the day, we do not want you to miss out!
For a limited time we have opened online voting so you can vote for your favourite entries before the ceremony. You have until Wednesday 16th February to check out the finalists below and pick your winner in each of the three categories – Projects, Products and Initiatives.
To help you decide, we have published new case study posters for each of the finalists.
The Old Fox Yard
The project involved the restoration, refurbishment and adaptation of a Grade II listed timber framed 17th century coaching inn. The design approach was to creatively preserve, integrate and showcase its heritage value while pioneering sustainable construction techniques. The result is a modern working environment with a historical fabric & natural materials that accommodates the needs of a growing business.
SNUG Forest Road
The Forest Road SNUG home is the first of its kind. An offsite, custom-build, net zero-carbon home, built with the community, that challenges the idea of what a ‘house’ is. The SNUG is a two-storey 44m2 1 bedroom, 1 person home, with a small footprint to fit neatly into back gardens or leftover plots, helping provide affordable new homes and improve urban areas.
Zetland Passive House
The Zetland Passive House project is the UK’s first certified EnerPHit Plus building. Originally built in 1894, this Passivhaus project is intended to provide a blueprint for retrofitting the UK’s 8 million pre-1930’s, hard to treat homes. Using natural, breathable materials and reusing all the recoverable, original fabric, the project is a pioneering example of sustainable low carbon retrofit.
Canongate Block 2
Sarn Passivhaus Development
Accsys transforms fast-growing, certified sustainable wood through a proprietary acetylation process, which increases the already naturally-occurring acetyl content of wood, to produce Accoya wood. This reduces the ability to absorb water, making it more dimensionally stable and extremely durable. The result is a high performing product with sustainability credentials that exceed those of man-made, resource intensive alternatives.
Agile's Innovative Housing Solution
Agile’s innovative, rapid, housing solution is high-quality, space-compliant, low-carbon and affordable. By unlocking land that’s free and “hidden in plain sight”, they eliminate costs, putting keys in front doors for social rent, shared ownership and open market. Built using an MMC panel system and renewable materials including UK timber, each home embeds 27 tonnes of carbon.
RMF Eco Range
The RMF Eco range is in the simplest terms a reused raised floor panel that has been saved from landfill, cleaned, randomly tested and re-installed into the category B office fit out market. RMF work closely with demolition contractors across the UK to obtain raised flooring being stripped out of projects, identify what the system is and whether it has a reuse potential or not.
Brouns & Co Linseed Paint
Proplex ClosedLoop Re-manufacturing Scheme
Thermo Hemp Combi Jute
OneClickLCA Pre-verified EPD generator
Accurate product carbon data is needed to measure embodied carbon at a building level. The classical approach to developing an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is slow, expensive, and hard-to-coordinate. OneClickLCA’s solution makes EPDs accessible by slashing development time and cost. With more EPDs powering sustainable choices they aim to help decarbonise construction
People Powered Retrofit
People Powered Retrofit is an initiative developed to offer an end-to-end owner occupier deep retrofit service in the Greater Manchester area, from advice and assessment through to design, procurement, quality assurance and evaluation. The initiative is a collaboration between research and design practice URBED and community energy organisation Carbon Co-op.
Structural Carbon Tool
In March 2021, the Institution of Structural Engineers launched the Structural Carbon Tool, an open-source Excel-based carbon estimator, developed by Elliott Wood Partnership Ltd. The purpose of the tool was to enable structural engineers from any size of company to estimate, then reduce the embodied carbon of their designs.
