The Workshop Theatre is proudly sponsored by the STA

Build It Live offers a range of free workshops, each presented by leading suppliers and specialists, with a focus on specific problems and choices that self-builders and renovators face every day. Our workshops aim to answer your burning questions and help you progress your project. Topics include everything from the benefits of ICF, energy efficient building solutions and real self builder stories, to how much your dream home will cost to build.
