Entries to the Society of Façade Engineering’s (SFE’s) Façade 2018 competition are now open. Its fifth international competition recognises, rewards and promotes excellence in this increasingly important element of building design, engineering and application.

The SFE is seeking entries from across the world, from individuals, companies and project teams. Façade contracts completed between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2017 – and not previously entered for the awards – are eligible. Prizes will be awarded by a panel of expert judges.

Entries should demonstrate excellence in technical design and research that has made a significant contribution to the discipline of façade engineering. The contribution may be demonstrated in the form of technical advances, innovations, or advanced engineering systems.

Three awards will be presented, for new-build, refurbishment and innovation. All entries should be received by 15 October, and the shortlist will be announced on 19 November. Winners will be revealed at the Glass Supper in December.
