Winners announced at 55th Structural Steel Design Awards
Five projects were Award winners at this year’s Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA).
The five winning projects at the 55th annual SSDA were Battersea Power Station, London; Copr Bay Bridge, Swansea; HYLO, London; One Centenary Way, Birmingham; and Stockingfield Bridge, Glasgow.
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 three collecting Merits.
Jointly sponsored by the British Constructional Steelwork Association and Steel for Life, the SSDA’s were announced at an evening reception at Christ Church Spitalfields Venue in east London.
Referring to the SSDA shortlist, British Constructional Steelwork Association President Gary Simmons, said: “The scale, scope and complexity of the projects are a great example of what can be achieved by our steel construction industry, even in challenging times. I would like to congratulate each and every project team for your outstanding achievements.
“I suspect that many of the schemes being celebrated here this evening have benefitted from the early involvement of the steelwork contractor.
“And since one of my aspirations during my term as BCSA President is to raise the profile of the steelwork contractor within the larger project delivery team, what better opportunity than tonight to raise this before an audience of main contractors, engineers, architects and enlightened clients.”
