Celebrating SuDS: the susdrain SuDS Awards 2022

Join us for our third bi-annual susdrain SuDS Awards 2022. This celebratory event will showcase outstanding SuDS projects across the UK and will announce our SuDS Champions of 2022.

This year the Awards will be a hybrid event, with susdrain members, Awards finalists and Champion nominees gathering at our venue in Sheffield and a live broadcast of the event via MS Teams. There are still a few places available to attend in-person, but anyone can join us online (choose in-person or online when booking).

susdrain SuDS Awards 2022
Since 2018, susdrain has been celebrating outstanding SuDS projects and recognising SuDS Champions who are instrumental in delivering exceptional SuDS. The Awards provide a platform to share the good practice, multi-beneficial SuDS, and recognise high-quality planning, design, construction and maintenance of sustainable drainage. The ‘overall winner’ Award will be presented to the scheme which is most effectively delivering SuDS that provide multiple benefits. Click here for more information about this year's entries.

susdrain SuDS Champions 2022
SuDS are often implemented due to the ability of a single champion or outstanding team to inspire, inform and influence others, share good practice, and deliver SuDS. This award will be presented to individuals or a team who have demonstrably gone ‘the extra mile’ to deliver and encourage the uptake of SuDS.

The Champions will be decided by public vote and announced on Thursday 14 July 2022. Join us to discover who will be your SuDS Champions from the following categories:
  1. Established SuDS professional
  2. SuDS rising star
