This year’s SSDA awards has seen the largest amount of entries to date with the quality of the entries still remaining high as ever, this is incredibly reassuring for the SSDA’s future.
The British Constructional Steelwork Association Ltd and Tata Steel have the pleasure of inviting entries for the 2016 Structural Steel Design Awards Scheme.
The objective is to celebrate the excellence of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland in the field of steel construction, particularly demonstrating its potential in terms of efficiency, cost effectiveness, aesthetics and innovation.
David W. Lazenby CBE – Chairman of the Judges, comments
“It is reassuring that we have seen an increase in the number of submissions for the Award scheme this year, and that the quality and interest of the projects remains as high as ever.
One strong impression is that these days there are few easy projects. For reasons of technical difficulty, timetabling or late-evolving scheme requirements, there are very few projects that do not present great challenges. This means that the teams must work closely and constructively together, and the importance of a well-committed and collaborative client cannot be overstated.
We have a good geographical spread, as well as a broad range of types of project. With two major sports arenas,school and university buildings, and exciting works in museums and national memorials, the usual areas are well represented. But we also have important energy schemes, commercial and residential rehabilitations, as well as five exciting footbridges. Altogether they represent a major contribution to the built environment.
In a real sense they are all winners. But the final list of projects to receive Awards, Commendations and recognition of Merit, reflect the strength and diversity of the industry.”
But what’s reassuring for STRUMIS is that an outstanding 43% of the winners from all categories are STRUMIS users.
In fact there isn’t a category that doesn’t have a STRUMIS user within it.
