The Façade Awards UK is brought to you by RCI

Has your façade engineering expertise shone on a high-profile project in the last year? Have your innovative solutions delivered outstanding results for a major client? If so, then now’s your chance to get the recognition you deserve, by entering the inaugural Façade Awards UK.

Brought to you by the publisher of RCI magazine in partnership with the Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA), the Façade Awards UK luncheon will be held on May 21, 2020 at The Park Royal hotel in Warrington, Cheshire.

The Awards seeks to raise awareness of the critical role façades play in modern architecture, and will reward excellence in façade design, as well as promote the creative and innovative use of products or materials.

If you’ve excelled on a project that’s demonstrated technical ingenuity, innovative design or advanced façade engineering, RCI wants to hear from you!

From innovative product design and materials used on a project, to the complexity of the installation, as well as individuals who have demonstrated excellence across the industry, the Façade Awards UK will recognise this through a range of criteria, which will be taken into consideration by the independent panel of façade experts.

Business benefits

Winning an award is not only an exceptional achievement, but it has proven business benefits for those who enter too. Research via RCI’s Pitched Roofing Awards has shown that those companies who have made it through the competitive selection process and onto the shortlist, or who have gone on to win an award, have experienced increased growth and have secured long-term business as a result of submitting an entry.

That’s why awards like the Façade Awards UK and the Pitched Roofing Awards stand out because they aim to recognise and celebrate both the quality of products and workmanship that have been carried out in these industries. They shine a spotlight on the finest workmanship from contractors and manufacturers, as well as the professionalism from individuals who go beyond what is asked of them. So, let’s unite and shine a spotlight on all the great aspects of the façades industry!
