Published in association with the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) and Steel for Life, the SSDA special features an article on each of the five Award-winning projects: Tombola HQ, Sunderland; Coal Drops Yard, London; Wimbledon No.1 Court; Taplow Riverside Footbridge; and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, New Stadium, which also received the Project of the Year accolade.
From an initial shortlist of 20 projects, this year’s entries once again scored highly in terms of sustainability, cost-effectiveness, efficiency and innovation, with six schemes getting Commendations and four collecting Merits.
Chairman of the SSDA Judges, Chris Nash said: “This year there has been a greater variety in the types of projects entered for the scheme.
“Scales of entry range from the largest sports building projects, through prestige city and regional office buildings, to smaller educational projects. This year, we also saw an increase in high-quality leisure sector projects and footbridges.
“There are jaw-dropping achievements here, and beautiful gems. I believe everyone involved in the steel construction industry should be proud of what has been achieved, and I trust that the SSDAs reflect the quality of the achievement.”
