Welcome to the Builders' Merchants Awards 2022
The builders’ merchant sector is one of the most dynamic in the construction industry and the Builders’ Merchant Awards will once again give you the opportunity to tell your peers - suppliers, customers and fellow merchants alike – why you are the best in the business.
The 2022 Awards will see trophies presented to those business and individuals who have gone beyond the expected. Whether this is through personal development, new initiatives to create a better and more diverse company or are striving to better their business in every area they can, then we want to hear about it.
It does not matter whether you are an individual, a one-branch merchant or have 50 or more branches, if you have done something exceptional this year then our judges want to hear about it.
Following industry feedback after the 20th Anniversary Builders’ Merchants Awards, the Specialist Merchant categories for the 2022 Awards have been slightly changed to include an Award for the Civils Merchant of the Year, and the Timber Merchant of the Year category has been reintroduced.
The 20th Anniversary Feedback Questionnaire also highlighted that 99.9% of respondents preferred the credibility of an Awards ceremony that is judged by industry peers; those people that they respect and the industry holds in esteem, which is why our judging panel has been expanded upon to include a wide and diverse mix of respected people from the industry. Entries must be received no later than Friday 26 August 2022, but do not delay.
Start working on your nomination now and you could be standing up in front of your industry friends and colleagues at our 21st Awards ceremony – again held at the magnificent Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge, London on Friday 25 November 2022.
