CIOB company member Buildfifty5 Living scooped a Federation of Small Business (FSB) Award for Innovation 2024, for the West Midlands.

The firm won the award for its innovative approach to procurement, sustainable building practices and customer service.

Established five years ago, Buildfifty5 Living is based at the e-Innovation Centre on the Wolverhampton University campus in Telford. The Innovation Award is presented to businesses where bold, new business models and innovative products are delivering dramatic results. 

“We are thrilled and honoured to receive the FSB for Innovation in the West Midlands,” said Kieran Danby, director at Buildfifty5 Living.

“Recognition for being innovative in business – not just within the construction industry – is testament to the hard work and creativity of our team, who continuously strive to be different in construction and housing delivery.”

In May, the company will progress to the UK national awards in Blackpool, where it will compete
with fellow award winners from across the country in other categories for the national award. 

Buildfifty5 Living is actively seeking brownfield development opportunities and refurbishment sites. By repurposing underutilised land and revitalising existing structures, its mission is to create affordable, sustainable housing solutions at the heart of communities in need.
