RIDBA launched the RIDBA Building Awards in 2017. Formerly known as the Farming and Agricultural Buildings Awards (FAB Awards), the new and improved awards remain the highlight of the industry calendar.
The 2017 finalists demonstrate the diverse range of projects that members are involved in, and the quality at which their work is finished to. RIDBA members are at the forefront of innovation, and show just what this industry can do. Whatever the project, from schools to barns, RIDBA members can provide quality workmanship and innovative solutions.
The RIDBA Building Awards celebrate the best in rural and industrial buildings delivered by members over the past two years. Taking place every two years, we are next open to entries in September 2018, with the award taking place in March 2019.
The 2017 winners were announced at an awards ceremony in March 2017 at the Radisson Blu hotel in Cardiff. The black-tie event, with a three course dinner was hosted by TV presenter and wildlife expert, Kate Humble.
