Winners of 2023 Façade Awards UK revealed!

Following hundreds of entries, a shortlist of projects, and a judging day where a panel of industry experts deliberated on the finalists, the winners of the Façade Awards UK 2023 have finally been announced.

Now in its fourth year, the awards, founded by RCI magazine, celebrates the achievements of façade contractors, manufacturers and suppliers who demonstrate an outstanding level of technical ability, an excellent quality of work, and showcase the superstars of the industry who have gone unnoticed, until today.

Twelve champions were crowned at the sold-out ceremony on Friday 3 November at The Midland Hotel in Manchester, which was hosted by professional hockey player and TV personality Sam Quek.

“Congratulations to all our winners,” said Gabriel Day, editor of RCI. “Your hard work and dedication have shown that, despite challenging circumstances, excellence can be attained.

“The quality of this year’s entries from across the UK was exceptional and included an increasingly outstanding quality of projects. Congratulations to every finalist and winner – you and your teams have demonstrated excellence to reach this stage, and while not everyone was able to win a trophy, you should all be proud of your achievements. Thank you for sharing your projects with us.”
