SSDA shortlist announced
The shortlist for the 54th Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA) jointly sponsored by the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) and Trimble Solutions (UK), has been announced.
The Awards have again seen a strong number of submissions and the 21 shortlisted projects once again showcase steel’s sustainability credentials, flexibility and versatility in a number of varying applications, spread across the UK.
The winners will be announced at an evening reception in London on 29th September.
BCSA Chief Executive Officer David Moore said: “The construction industry remains focused on delivering low carbon structures that meet the ever-changing demands of clients and the climate emergency. Structural steelwork is the original sustainable material that can be re-used and recycled time and time again. and still deliver efficient, practical, and flexible spaces that are both beautiful and cost-effective.
2021/22 has been another challenging year. In the autumn/winter of 2021 and early 2022 it looked like COVID-19 was largely under control and the lifting of restrictions would bring the economy back to pre-pandemic levels. However, the war in Ukraine resulted in significant increases in energy prices, supply issues for certain construction materials and inflation approaching 10%, but even with these trials the constructional steelwork sector remains buoyant and continues to provide low carbon, high quality structures for demanding clients.”
Steven Insley, Business Director – UK & Ireland, Trimble added: “In its 54th year, Trimble are once again delighted to continue to be associated with the Structural Steel Design Awards and are further inspired with the level of excellence in the use of this adaptable and sustainable structural material that they display.”
