DEADLINE EXTENDED - Friday 20th March 2020

Welcome to The Façade Awards


The inaugural Façade Awards UK, an event brought to you by the publisher of RCI magazine, that rewards excellence in façade design, has been postponed, following the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Due to take place on May 21, 2020, at The Park Royal hotel in Warrington, Cheshire, the Façade Awards UK will now take place on November 12, 2020 at the same venue.

Nichola Farrugia, editor of RCI magazine, said: “This was not an easy decision to take. We have been building momentum to this event for a very long time, and there were many people looking forward to what was going to be an outstanding occasion.

“However, the health and wellbeing of our guests was always paramount. Given the uncertainty surrounding the spread of the virus and the risk it poses to some members of the population, we felt there was no real option but to postpone.

“We remain committed to delivering what will be a truly remarkable event later in the year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors behind the awards for their support in moving the date to later in the year.”

To ensure that you’ve had time to adjust to new ways of working and still submit your awards entries without penalty, we have extended the entry deadline to Thursday 30 April, 2020.

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

Registration for the Façade Awards UK must be submitted online here, but don’t delay! Start working on your nominations now to ensure you can stand up and be counted among your peers. 

We’ve received some amazing entries already, so we can’t wait to see yours!

The inaugural RCI Façade Awards UK, is a unique event tailored to provide acknowledge and reward excellence for those working within this dynamic sector.

Never before has the industry had the opportunity to be a part of a niche awards ceremony, which identifies all external products associated within the façade sector. The awards categories are open to all manufacturers and their contractors, so no matter how big or small the project is, we welcome your entry to be carefully analysed by our panel of independent judges, and be in contention to win an award for one of our 12 categories.

Award ceremonies create a fantastic buzz, pre, during and post event, and as such, provide manufacturers with an excellent opportunity to obtain kudos amongst their peers, by partaking in one of our comprehensive sponsorship packages available. These packages provide a detailed marketing programme in the run up to the event, brand awareness during the day, and even after the awards within our post event winners brochure, which will announce all the winners and sponsors within the June issue of RCI magazine.

The Façade Awards UK is truly something our industry can and will be proud of, so if you would like to be a part of and support this specialised event, please contact Tony Brown for sponsorship opportunities.
