Innovation highlighted in SSDA shortlist

Posted on by in News, SSDA Awards

Corus and the BCSA have announced a 17 project shortlist for the 2010 Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA), the 42nd year they have been held.

The projects shortlisted reflect the geographical spread of steel’s appeal for jobs large and not-so-large, including single storey and multi storey buildings, bridges and other structures. The sectors of the construction market represented include transport, energy, education, leisure and industrial.

David Lazenby CBE, Chairman of the SSDA Judging Panel, said: “Structural steelwork demonstrates success yet again, as the material of choice. In these tough times the entries to the SSDA show great imagination, professionalism and service to the clients.

We are starting to see work related to the 2012 Olympics, but there are less of the “little gems” that we always hope to reward.

In challenging situations, the teams involved in these really exciting schemes have acted in concerted efforts to produce some outstanding results. 2010 has brought forward a great demonstration of the industry’s strength and capabilities.”

The winners of the awards will be announced at an evening reception at the Imperial War Museum, London, on 8 July.
