Design awards shortlist

The range and versatility of steel is demonstrated in the shortlist for the Structural Steel Design Awards, announced in January.

Chairman of the judging panel David Lazenby CBE said: “There is a good spread of entries ranging from domestic houses to town centre developments, and bridges from moveable pedestrian structures to main line railway crossings. The standard was remakably high.”

Mr Lazenby, who takes over as chairman from Professor Patrick Dowling, and RIBA representative Robin Booth are joined this year by four new panel members. They are Gerry Hayter of the Highways Agency; Joe Locke, recently retired from William Hare; Martin Manning, a director of Arup; and Christopher Nash, Managing Director of Nicholas Grimshaw.
