Construction News special highlights steel awards
The latest Steel Spotlight report, available in this week’s Construction News, focuses entirely on the Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA).
Published in association with the British Constructional Steelwork Association and Tata Steel, the 11 page special report showcases the 47th SSDA held last week at One Great George Street, London.
Each of the five award winning steel projects is featured in length along with shorter articles on the three commendations and two certificates of merit.
The five winning projects were Moorgate Exchange, London; First World War Galleries, Imperial War Museum, London; Derby Arena; Merchant Square Footbridge, London; and Island Pavilion and Footbridge, Wormsley.
Commendations were awarded to three structures: Greenwich Reach Swing Bridge, London; Milton Court, Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Heathrow Terminal 2B.
Certificates of Merit were awarded to two further structures: Weathering Steel House, Putney and Kew House, Richmond.
The SSDA scheme was instituted in 1969 to recognise the high standards of structural and architectural design attainable in the use of steel and its potential in terms of efficiency, cost effectiveness, aesthetics and innovation.
The Awards aim to promote the innovative use of steel by rewarding outstanding projects to stand as an example to others.
The Awards are run annually and are open to structural steelwork projects both in the UK and overseas, which use steel predominantly sourced from Tata Steel and which employ a UK or Irish steelwork contractor in their construction. Projects must have been completed in the two years prior to the year of entry.
The Construction News Steel Spotlight Structural Steel Design Awards 2015 will be available from tomorrow (Friday 10 July) at: www.steelconstruction.info
