SSDA shortlist highlights steel success stories
The 21 projects shortlisted showcase steel’s flexibility and versatility in a number of different and varying applications.
The shortlist also reflects the wide geographical spread of steel’s appeal for a variety of projects ranging from stadia to education buildings, with entries also received for a variety of bridges, commercial developments and industrial facilities across the UK.
Chairman of the SSDA Judges David Lazenby said: “It is reassuring that the number of submissions for the Award scheme remains high, and that quality and interest of the projects is as strong as ever.
“One impression is that these days there are few easy projects and this means teams must work closely and constructively together.”
