Commenting on the shortlist, BCSA Director General Sarah McCann-Bartlett said: “The structural steelwork sector has evolved significantly since the SSDAs were launched in 1969, however one constant has been the ability of steel to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective solution for a building or structure, while also providing practical, flexible and beautiful spaces. As the original offsite framing material, structural steel is now looking to the future to deliver a more complex level of design for manufacture and assembly.”

Trimble Solutions (UK) Managing Director Richard Fletcher added: “The projects shortlisted once again celebrate our world class structural steel industry within the UK and Ireland. At the forefront of technology within construction, our industry continues to deliver projects of high complexity and scale through data driven design, manufacture, assembly and erection.”
