The Tall Buildings Conference and Tall Buildings Award Ceremony will be taking place at 99 City Road, London on 13 May 2020, with entries open until Friday 28th February.
The event will provide unique insight into the engineering feats that are shaping the UK’s city skylines, and recognising excellence in the sector.
Tall buildings present unique challenges. Innovation is happening at pace and unique design and engineering solutions are being developed to maximise space in city centres where demand is high, requiring elevated solutions to provide more homes and commercial space.
Following on from the conference and exhibition, on the evening of 13 May, the inaugural Tall Buildings Award Ceremony will take place to celebrate innovative technologies, projects and people.
With fourteen categories, the Tall Buildings Awards will celebrate the best commercial, residential, mixed-use, sustainable and retrofit projects, as well as the best tall building interior fit-out, MEP services, facade engineering and building technology innovation. On top of this, industry pioneers will be celebrated with awards recognising the best project manager, client, contractor, architect and engineer.
These awards offer the opportunity for ground-breaking construction project and inspirational pioneers to take centre stage and gain recognition for excellence in the high-rise sector. The submission deadline is Friday 28 February 2020. Entering the awards is completely free and finalists will be showcased in the newly launched Tall Buildings Magazine.
