The Façade Awards UK, which is now in its second year, returns on Friday 19 November, 2021 at The Midland Hotel in Manchester, to recognise and reward outstanding examples of façade design and promote the creative and innovative use of products or materials.

After a successful virtual event, we are delighted to be launching the 2021 awards, so if you think you have excelled on a project that has demonstrated technical ingenuity, innovative design or advanced façade engineering, we want to hear from you!
