Steel projects star at 2020 BCO awards
Projects that used a steel-framed solution have won accolades at this year’s British Council for Offices (BCO) annual awards.
Split into five regions covering the entire UK, the BCO awards have six categories consisting of Commercial Workspace; Corporate Workspace; Refurbished/Recycled Workspace; Fit Out of Workspace; Projects up to 1,500m2; and Innovation.
In the London region, the Brunel Building (pictured) won the Commercial Workspace category, and 160 Old Street was the winner in both the Refurbished/Recycled Workspace and Innovation categories.
In the Midlands & Central England region, 50/60 Station Road, Cambridge won the Commercial Workspace award. Situated in the heart of the city’s CB1 masterplan, this state-of-the-art development required 2,000t of steelwork, which was erected by Billington Structures.
The Fit Out of Workspace category in the South of England and South of Wales region went to the BBC Wales building in Central Square, Cardiff. The 2,100t steel frame for this important scheme was erected by Severfield.
Forming the initial phase of the Bothwell Exchange development, 122 Waterloo Street in Glasgow, won the Corporate Workspace category in the Scotland region. BHC was the steelwork contractor for this project.
