Cold War museum scoops European Award

Posted on by in News

Steelwork contractor S.H. Structures was in Luxembourg on 13 September to collect a prestigious European Steel Design Award for The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford’s new National Cold War Collection project.

The steel-framed building, designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects, houses a unique collection of historic aircraft and other exhibits relating to the Cold War era.

The awards, which this year received entries from 19 countries, are presented every two years by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) and acknowledge the creative and outstanding use of steel in architecture and construction.

“This was a great project to work on as we were involved in the early design development of the structure. This collaborative approach, led by the architects, enabled us to influence the design and bring both financial and programme benefits to the scheme,” said Tim Burton, S.H. Structures Sales & Marketing Manager.

The £9M project opened to the public during February 2007.
