The Scandia-Hus team are always honoured when a self-builder chooses to include us in their dream house journey. We’re lucky enough to have worked with a number of customers on outstanding projects that have gained industry recognition for the quality of their build, design, teamwork and sustainability. The following are examples of the types of awards that we have been involved in over the past few years:
- Shortlisted: LABC Building Excellence Awards 2020
The project ‘Little Mew’ near Plymouth in Devon, is a contender for the South West Best Individual New Home Award. This bespoke property is a stunning example of contemporary architecture whose construction on a sloping site produced many challenges. The difficulties were resolved by a complex engineered retaining wall and entry to the property over a bridge. Little Mew is an innovative design, creating a clever solution to a challenging site.
The project ‘Old School Cottage’, the traditional style chalet bungalow featured in one of our recent case studies, has been shortlisted for the South East award. To read the case study, please click here.
Winners for the awards will be announced in September 2020.
The traditional style Scandia property Lee and Amber Wilmot built in West Sussex featured in Build It magazine’s December 2018 issue and was selected from a list of 72 as being one of the best Self Build homes in Britain.
Six projects were put forward for the accolade of “Best Self Build or Renovation” from those appearing in the magazine over the previous 12 months.
The stunning Scandia built within the South Downs National Park was shortlisted for ‘Best Timber Frame Home’ at the Build It Awards 2019.

The property featured in our case study “Contemporary Architecture in a Cranleigh Back Garden” was commended by Waverley Borough Council at the Waverley Design Awards this year. ‘The Hus’, as it has been so aptly named, received the commendation in the ‘New Residential Building’ category at the awards in March.
