Steel projects triumph at industry awards

Posted on by in News

Glasgow’s New Stobhill Hospital scooped the prestigious Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award at the British Construction Industry Awards 2010.

Working on behalf of main contractor Balfour Beatty Construction, Severfield-Reeve Structures erected 1,600t of structural steelwork for the project.

Commenting on the completed hospital, the judges said: “New Stobhill has brought dignity to civic design and delivery and has exceeded the client’s aspirations. There is an incredibly high level of design and it is built to a very high standard.”

With a total floorspace of 30,000m2, the hospital provides 2,000 patients with a modern healthcare facility which was delivered on time and to the £65M budget.

Ropemaker Place, London, another high profile steel framed structure, won the Major Project Award. This is a new 21 storey office block providing highly energy efficient and flexible space on a congested city centre site.

Severfield-Reeve Structures erected more than 5,000t of structural steelwork for this project.

The Civil Engineering Project Award went to the A40 Bridges Replacement project. This job included the construction of a new steel footbridge to span the busy dual carriageway. Steelwork contractor for this project was SH Structures.
