The Society of Façade Engineering is once again launching the International Award for Façade Engineering Excellence.

Following the success of the inaugural event in 2013 the Society of Facade Engineering has called for entries for Facade 2015, the second international competition designed to recognise, promote and reward excellence in this increasingly important element of building design and construction.

The 2013 International Award for Facade Engineering Excellence was won by Aedas Architects for the facade engineering work on Al Bahr Towers in Abu Dhabi.

Three awards will be presented: Façade of the Year 2015 – New build; Facade of the Year 2015 – Refurbishment; and an additional category Outstanding Facade Innovation 2015. The winners will be presented in December 2015 at the prestigious Glass Supper conference and dinner that attracts the highest echelon of facades-focused architects and engineers from around the world. This year the venue is the celebrated ‘Sky Garden’ in the City of London.

International applications are welcome from individuals, companies and project teams. The prizes will be awarded by a panel of judges that includes some of the foremost experts from the field of façade engineering and design to entries that demonstrate:

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. Entries can relate to projects that are agreed, under construction or completed.

Announcing the competition on behalf of the SFE, Competition Organiser Graham Hackley said: “The discipline of façades engineering has come of age and there is a wider recognition of the technical engineering and scientific underpinning that is required to be able to push the industry to new heights and levels of achievement. Some of the world’s most treasured structures are appreciated because of the key element of their façades.
