Winners announced at 54th Structural Steel Design Awards
Five projects were Award winners at this year’s Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA).
The five winning projects at the 54th annual SSDA were 1 Triton Square, London; Bombardier Maintenance Hangar, Biggin Hill; Esperance Bridge, Kings Cross; Lord’s Cricket Ground, Compton & Edrich Stands Redevelopment; and Tower of Light, Manchester.
From an initial shortlist of 21 projects, all of this year’s entries once again scored highly in terms of sustainability, cost-effectiveness, efficiency and innovation, with six schemes getting Commendations and four collecting Merits.
Chairman of the Judges, Chris Nash said: “Again, this year there was a wide range of types and scale of projects entered for the Awards. Schemes ranged from the largest prestige city office buildings to beautiful footbridges.
“We were particularly interested in projects that reflect a commitment to reducing lifetime carbon use.”
Trimble Solutions UK once again partnered the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) for this year’s SSDA.
Trimble Business Director UK & Ireland Steven Insley said: “In its 54th year, Trimble are once again delighted to continue to be associated with the Structural Steel Design Awards and are further inspired with the level of excellence in the use of this adaptable and sustainable structural material that they display.
“The scale, scope and complexity of the projects submitted are a great example of what can be achieved through digitalisation in the structural steelwork industry, enabling the design, detail, manufacture, and construction of such impressive structures.
“The quality of the projects on display here also underlines the capabilities of the project teams here tonight, who clearly know how to get the best out of steel.”
British Constructional Steelwork Association President Mark Denham added: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and what amazes me is the consistently high quality of projects we produce in the UK and Ireland despite everything we’ve all had to endure. It really does illustrate the strength and resilience of our steel construction sector.”
