Organisers of #Build17, the biggest house building expo in the north west, have hailed this year’s event a “phenomenal success”.

Hundreds of would be self-builders, developers and people planning on extending, renovating, buying or selling attended the #Build17 event on Saturday last at Watson Hire in Letterkenny.

Supported by AIB, the event was designed to connect anyone planning a build project with a team of leading industry experts.

Build17 spokesperson, Garry Clarke, of Lanigan Clarke Solicitors, said this year’s event had surpassed the inaugural event in 2016 and that plans for a 2018 expo were already underway.

“We had always hoped that this year’s event would match that of last year, both in terms of numbers and support within the community. The #Build17 team is delighted to say this year’s event proved to be a phenomenal success.

“Hundreds of people were able to access the very best self-build advice from experts who are the very best at what they do. The team look forward to building on the success again next year.”

Mr Clarke said the Build team would like to thank all those who attended the event, as well as AIB and Watson Hire.
