The B1M have received a YouTube Creator Award for surpassing 100,000 subscribers on our award-winning channel.

The B1M’s success can be attributed to our agenda-setting content that continues to inspire viewers in their millions.
Highlights in the last year have included Hyperloop Explained – which amassed over 1.2M views and is now the world’s leading video on hyperloop; The Construction Robots are Coming – which explored the rise of robotics; Building on Mars – which was screened by NASA; Building a Skyscraper with 4D VR – an exclusive feature on London’s 22 Bishopsgate; 3 Construction Jobs That Don’t Exist (Yet) – which challenged concerns around the rise of technology, and; Norway’s $47BN Coastal Highway, which amassed over 2.4M views within six days of release.
In September, we partnered with Volvo to live stream the unveiling of their latest concept construction vehicles in Berlin.
