Taylor Wimpey is one of the largest homebuilders in the UK operating from 24 regional offices across England, Scotland and Wales. We build a wide range of properties from one and two bedroom apartments to five bedroom houses.
Our aim is to build homes and communities that our customers will love, and that add to, and improve the local area. We achieve this by listening to and working closely with our clients, local authorities and local communities.
Buying a home is a significant financial and emotional investment and we aim to deliver a great product and service that goes beyond our customers’ expectations.
The Judging Panel (which may be subject to change) is expected to comprise:
Pete Redfern Taylor Wimpey, CEO
Nick Rogers Taylor Wimpey, UK Director of Design
Kevin Belsham Taylor Wimpey, UK Sales and Marketing Director
Glenn Howells Glenn Howells Architects, RIBA Adviser

Joanne Wallis and another representative from RIBA Competitions will attend the assessments to document the competition process and provide procedural support.
Various advisory panels will also contribute including future home purchasers.
In the event of a Judging Panel member being unable to continue to act through illness or any other cause, Taylor Wimpey, in consultation with the RIBA, reserves the right to appoint an alternative Panel member.
Winners & Prize Money
It is intended that five teams will be selected to proceed to the second Stage. Each shortlisted team who submits a stage two entry will each receive an honorarium of £6,000 +VAT with an additional £10,000 winner’s prize fund.
The winning entrants will be formally appointed to prepare working drawings in preparation for the building of the prototypes. The prototypes will be built and showcased in England, Wales and Scotland. Should the prototypes prove successful, negotiations may continue with the successful party to create further additions to the 2020 wider portfolio of homes.
