The IStructE annual awards recognise the work of the world’s most talented structural designers and their contribution to the built environment and are considered to be pre-eminent within the industry.
“We believe structural engineers have a key role to play in delivering sustainable development through integrated thinking, design excellence, efficient material usage and mindfulness of water, site and the local community,” Dr Bassam Burgan, SCI Deputy Director said.
“We are therefore very pleased to be the 2006 sponsors of the Institution of Structural Engineers’ David Alsop Sustainability award,” he added.
The IStructE Structural Awards 2006 will be held at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf in London on 8 November. For more information go to website: www.istructe.org.uk
As part of its activities to support sustainable development, the SCI will also be the official sponsor of the Building Group Sustainable Awards ceremony 2006. This event takes place at the London Park Lane Hilton Hotel, on 20 November.
