The Society of Façade Engineering (SFE) are relaunching the awards this year with new categories celebrating the key discipline of facade design, engineering and application.
Following the success of previous year’s competitions, the award categories have been expanded to include Project of the Year, Young Façade Engineer of the Year, Product of the Year and Lifetime Achievement.
The Façade 2022 Design and Engineering Awards recognise and reward excellence and achievements in façade engineering, raising the profile of, and drawing attention to, the importance of this discipline in modern architecture. Previous winners have included the Bloomberg HQ in London, and the Morpheus hotel in Macau, China.
On launching the entry for this year’s awards, SFE Chair Chris Aspinall commented:
“I am delighted to see the return of the SFE Façade Design Awards. This unique event acknowledges innovation, ingenuity and excellence in façade design and products. It also provides an opportunity to shine a light on the rising stars and to recognise those who have made a significant contribution to the façade industry. We’re also delighted to be joining forces with the ZAK World of Façades Conference in London this year. Together we are championing the best in services and products to construct safe and sustainable building façades.”
The event, taking place on 3 November 2022 at the Hilton Park Lane, London, will bring together close to 1000 professionals from across the globe and will represent one of the largest gatherings for the sector.
The awards will take place after the conference and will be judged by an expert panel and be presented at the high-profile dinner, attended by leaders across the industry.
The closing date for entries is 06 June 2022. Any Façade Contract practically complete between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2021 will be considered for the awards.
The SFE, a division of CIBSE, brings together those involved in the façade industry, to advance knowledge and practice in façade engineering, promoting good practice and ensuring that today’s increasingly complex building facades meet the many and varying performance criteria.
