SSDA shortlist highlights teamwork

Corus and the BCSA have announced a 22 strong shortlist of projects for the 2009 Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA), the 41st year they have been held.

The shortlisted projects reflect the geographical spread of steel’s appeal for projects large and not-so-large, including single storey and multi storey buildings, bridges and other structures. The sectors of the construction market represented by shortlisted projects include sports, airports, commercial, leisure, retail, education, industrial, energy and transport.

David Lazenby CBE, Chairman of the SSDA Judging Panel, said the judges were impressed this year by the diversity of project selected for the shortlist, as well as their very high quality. He said: “Once again steel has shown that it is the construction material of choice, to achieve outstanding results, with responsiveness, economy and satisfaction to the client.

“The judges have been particularly impressed by the constructive teamwork which has contributed so much to the success of all these steelwork projects. Well done to all concerned.”

The winners of the awards will be announced at a reception at the Science Museum, London, on 9 July.
