 These  awards recognise the people of the UK’s Build To Rent industry who are the day to day ambassadors  of our high standards of customer service and community building and sector growth. We intend these awards to champion best practice  and help foster a culture of sharing  across the UK’s fastest growing property class. 

The BTRs will be the most recognised and celebrated people awards in the sector.  

We are keen to encourage as many entries and nominations as possible. This is your opportunity  to highlight the contribution that your staff, colleagues and friends  are making to the success of your organisation or the development of the sector.
