Ecology wins Best Self Build Lender at Build It awards

1 December 2020

We’ve been recognised in the Build It Awards 2020.

Ecology was the winner in the Best Self Build Lender category. This category aims to recognise excellence when providing mortgages for self- and custom-build.

The award reinforces Ecology’s role as a leading supporter of self- and custom-build in the UK for nearly 40 years. In the submission to the judges we highlighted our commitment to our ecological mission and the Society’s role in supporting the green recovery as well as details of Ecology’s self-build and renovation mortgages and our support for the self-build sector more generally.

The judges were impressed by our mortgage range and high profile support of NaCSBA (National Custom and Self-Build Association). In addition 100% of our borrowers surveyed in Build It’s self-build survey indicated that they would strongly recommend us to a friend.

Our ecological mission means that our objective isn’t the provision of lending itself. Instead we are interested in the positive environmental impact of our mortgages. This makes us uniquely committed to supporting borrowers throughout their project to ensure they can realise their vision of a sustainable self- or custom-build.
