Celebrating SuDS: the susdrain SuDS Awards 2022

Join us for our 3rd bi-annual susdrain SuDS Awards 2022. This celebratory event will showcase outstanding projects across the UK and will announce our SuDS Champions of 2022.

This year the Awards will be a hybrid event, with susdrain members and Awards finalists gathering at our venue in Sheffield and a live broadcast of the event via MS Teams.

susdrain has been providing reward for outstanding SuDS projects and recognising SuDS Champions who are instrumental in delivering exceptional SuDS since 2018. The Awards provide a platform to share the best SuDS that havec been implemented over the last four years, recognising high-quality planning, design, construction and maintenance of sustainable drainage.

We have increased the number of Awards categories to nine this year to reflect the growing SuDS community and breadth of work being undertaken. The ‘overall winner’ Award will be presented to the scheme which is most effectively delivering SuDS that provide multiple benefits.
