About us

We praise local homebuilders for improving our communities.

The Cowgills Homebuilder Awards is the event for small to medium sized homebuilders to come together to celebrate and recognise the excellent work that takes place to meet the country’s growing need for new homes.


Awards done differently.

The first of its kind not just in the North West but in the UK. Specifically acknowledging the hard work being undertaken by SMEs to meet the region’s housing requirements.

All categories are open exclusively for entry by SMEs with the awards focusing on the work being completed by homebuilders and developers in the North West.

To maintain the integrity of the awards, sponsors are not eligible to enter.


Our charity partner is the UK’s children’s charity the NSPCC.

The NSPCC  provides children and young people with the support they need to thrive through therapeutic services, national helplines, groundbreaking research and campaigning for change.

The North West Homebuilder Awards will be a not for profit event, with all proceeds made on the evening going to support the great work that the NSPCC does.

The Event

Created to recognise and promote the fantastic work that North West SME homebuilders complete. 

The evening is completely different to the traditional black tie and dinner event, taking a more casual and exciting approach. Think really good quality sharing platters and Haçienda vibes.


Sponsorship for the 2023 awards is open.

Sponsoring the North West Homebuilder Awards offers a fantastic opportunity to position your brand alongside a prestigious, high profile and exclusive event that champions the hard work being undertaken by SMEs to meet the region’s housing requirements.
