It’s been a huge year for the world’s greatest industry.

The B1M received a great number of amazing entries for the Construction Story of the Year in 2023. There’s no shortage of inspiring, boundary-pushing work that is quite literally shaping the world around us.

Traditionally the construction sector hasn’t been great at shouting about itself, but we know that stories cut through more effectively than anything. So, together with Nemetschek, B1M set out to find construction’s most impressive and inspiring stories, lifting them up and using their success as a means to promote this fantastic industry. After much-deliberation amongst the expert judges  arrived at the longlist.

From this, three finalists will be selected and they will be revealed in three short video features at the beginning of October. Feedback when then be sought from the audience and the judges’ final thoughts to arrive at an overall winner, set to be announced on 16 November.
