This year a new award category has been added, the Major Project Award, for buildings with at least 1,000 square metres of Schüco façade. This is in addition to the existing ten categories covering project types including education, cultural, health and leisure buildings; commercial and mixed use; residential developments; individual houses; sustainability, steel, and refurbishment and adaptive reuse projects.

Every year an Overall Winner is selected by the judges and, in 2020, a People’s Choice category was introduced with the winner selected by fellow nominees on the day of the award ceremony.

This year’s judging panel welcomes new additions Holly Galbraith (Níall McLaughlin Architects), Barbara Weiss (Barbara Weiss Architects) and Anna Wendt (Buro Happold – Integrated consulting engineers and advisers).

Winners will be announced from the shortlisted nominees at a celebration lunch to be held at the Cutty Sark, London on 29th June 2023.

Nominees will first enjoy a drinks reception on board London’s largest luxury paddle steamer. Tower Bridge will open for the boat before it proceeds up the River Thames to take guests to the Cutty Sark where television presenter and architectural designer, Charlie Luxton, will host the awards lunch.

The deadline for entries is 26th April. For full details and to enter the awards visit
