BCSA Chief Executive Officer David Moore said: “Structural steelwork is the original sustainable material with the ability to be recycled and re-used time and time again to deliver structures that meet the low carbon demands of clients and the climate emergency.
“It is also able to deliver efficient, practical, and flexible spaces that are both beautiful and cost-effective. 2020/21 has been a challenging year with COVID-19, Brexit and supply issues but even with these trials the constructional steelwork sector has remained buoyant and continues to provide high-quality buildings and infrastructure for demanding clients.”
Trimble Buildings Regional Business Director Richard Fletcher added: “In its 53rd year, Trimble are delighted to continue to be associated with the Structural Steel Design Awards and are further enthralled with the level of excellence in the use of this adaptable and sustainable structural material that they display.”
