SSDA shortlist highlights innovation

Posted on by in News

Corus and the BCSA have announced a shortlist of 24 projects for the 2008 Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA).

This year’s shortlisted projects come from around the UK and even as far afield as Barbados, and reflect the innovative application of steel across a wide range of construction sectors including commercial and leisure, industrial, education, residential, bridges as well as landmark public art.

David Lazenby CBE, Chairman of the SSDA Judging Panel, said: “As judges we regard the awards as a showcase for how constructional steelwork plays a vibrant, forward thinking and innovative part in the success of the construction industry.

“Diverse as the shortlisted projects this year are, regardless of whether a project has used five or 30,000t of steel, each one stands as testament to the skills and determination of highly motivated project teams working to achieve noteworthy results.”

The winners of the 2008 SSDA Awards will be announced at a black tie award ceremony taking place on 8 July 2008 at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The event will also include a retrospective of winning entries since 1969 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Awards.
