Steel’s flexibility highlighted by SSDA shortlist
The 12 projects shortlisted showcase steel’s flexibility and versatility in a number of different and varying applications.
The shortlist also reflects the wide geographical spread of steel’s appeal for a variety of projects ranging from leisure facilities to high-rise commercial developments, with entries also received for a variety of bridges, and a major tourist attraction.
David Lazenby CBE, Chairman of the SSDA Judging Panel, said: “Even in the difficult times which the industry has been experiencing, the Awards’ submissions have been exciting, innovative and of genuinely high quality.
“The selected shortlist of 12 projects has been visited and subjected to the usual close scrutiny by the judges. I am confident that the industry will appreciate a worthy and impressive raft of winners.”
