Steel sector’s quality highlighted by SSDA shortlist
The shortlist for the 45th Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA) has been announced by the British Constructional Steelwork Association and Tata Steel.
This year’s shortlist consists of 16 projects and reflects steel’s appeal with a variety of sectors ranging from offices/commercial, transport, energy, education and sports facilities and a variety of bridges, together with a theatre and a major tourist attraction.
David Lazenby CBE, Chairman of the SSDA Judging Panel, said: “The judges are conscious of trends over the years. It remains clear that closer and cooperative relationships within project teams (including the client) have never been more important, nor the need for a thoroughly professional approach to the training and qualification of people, and proper traceability of processes and materials.
“This year we again see a highly professional performance from the industry, with technical competence and careful management of the work. These are not achieved easily, but are key to the satisfaction of the client.”
The winners of the 2013 SSDAs will be announced at an evening reception at Madame Tussauds in London on 9 July.
