2022 Facade Awards UK shortlist revealed!

It’s the moment you have all been waiting for… the shortlist for the 2022 Façade Awards UK has been revealed!

The live awards ceremony will be taking place on 4 November at The Midland Hotel in Manchester and will give those attending the opportunity to network and celebrate excellence in façades.

Gabriel Day, editor of RCI magazine, said: “As the industry continues to prosper and grow after the pandemic, it has yielded an overwhelming amount of high-quality of entries which we have received in our third year of the Façade Awards UK.  

“The outstanding diversity of the entries clearly shines a light on the complex workmanship and high-quality products involved on the individual projects. The bar was also very high for entries this year so if you did not make it into the shortlist, be sure to try again next year!

“The RCI team is very excited to be celebrating the Façade Awards UK this year after the fantastic ceremony back in 2021, when the industry came together for the first time in-person in a while to commemorate their achievements together.   

“We would therefore like to invite everyone who has entered the awards to attend the lunch in person.”
