Winners announced at 53rd Structural Steel Design Awards
Four projects were Award winners at this year’s Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA).
The four winning projects at the 53rd annual SSDA were 100 Liverpool Street, London; Hams Way Footbridge; Pooley New Bridge; and Glasgow Queen Street Station.
From an initial shortlist of 20 projects, all of this year’s entries once again scored highly in terms of sustainability, cost-effectiveness, efficiency and innovation, with seven schemes getting Commendations and four collecting Merits.
Chairman of the Judges, Chris Nash said: “This year there was a wide range of projects entered for the scheme. Scales of entry range from the largest prestige city office buildings to beautiful bridges.
“The judges were particularly interested in projects that reflected a re-use of existing structures, and this year the commitment to examining the real impact of construction on carbon use by deep analysis by some practitioners was impressive and welcome.”
Trimble Solutions UK once again partnered the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) for this year’s SSDA.
Trimble Solutions UK National Sales Manager Steven Insley said: “Trimble are delighted to continue to be associated with the SSDA and are further enthralled with the level of excellence in the use of this adaptable and sustainable structural material that they display.
“The past year has challenged the industry and wider society in ways we have not previously experienced. The ability of the industry to continue to deliver projects of this quality in an ever-changing world, leveraging technology for design for manufacture and assembly, is truly inspirational.”
British Constructional Steelwork Association President Mark Denham added: “The SSDAs show how vibrant and resilient our sector is, and they reinforce the UK’s position as a world leader in steel construction.”
