The Society of Façade Engineering (SFE) has called for entries to the third in the series of its international competition that is designed to recognise, reward and promote excellence in the key discipline of façade design, engineering and application.
The Society has called for entries to be submitted immediately for FAÇADE2016, with a closing date of October 31, 2016.
Created, managed and judged by some of the world’s leading exponents of façade engineering and design, previous winners include projects from Abu Dhabi, Canada and the UK, with finalists including projects as far afield as China and Australia.
For 2016 the winners will be announced at the Glass Supper on December 1 at the historic and architecturally renowned Gibson Hall in the City of London.
Three Awards will be presented in 2016: Façade of the Year – New Build; Façade of the Year – Refurbishment; Façade of the Year – Innovation.
International applications are welcome from individuals, companies and project teams, and any façade contract practically complete between December 21, 2014, and December 31, 2015, and not previously entered in an SFE competition will be considered for the awards.
Prizes will be awarded by a panel of judges made up of experts from the field of façade engineering and design to entries that provide a clear demonstration of excellence in technical design and / or research that has made a significant contribution to the discipline of façade engineering in the development of technologies, product designs, systems or buildings.
The contribution may be demonstrated in the form of technical advances, innovations or advanced engineering systems that result in practical design solutions for the completion of a project. Full entry criteria is available on the competition website
