SFE Façade of the Year Competition


2020 Competition Cancelled

It is with much disappointment we would like to announce that the Society of Facade Engineering's Competition ‘Façade - Project of the Year’ has been cancelled this year.

This decision has not been taken lightly but is a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting economic climate.

We will however ensure that the 2021 competition will be BIGGER and BETTER than ever before so please follow our updates and watch this space.

That’s not all… we have something special for you coming soon!
