The 2019 Structural Steel Design Awards were held on Tuesday 1 October. This was the 51st year for the award ceremony, which is dedicated to showcasing the amazing achievements that can be created from structural steel – with a focus also being on the architectural design.
All 20 entries on the shortlist were scored highly for each projects ‘efficiency, cost-effectiveness, aesthetics, sustainability and innovation’.
The Tottenham Hotspur project also received an award for ‘Project of the Year’.
Our Chiswick Park Footbridge project received a commendation from the judges too.
Also shortlisted for an award were Severfield projects Aga Khan Centre in London and Ely Southern Bypass.
Severfield is extremely proud to have worked on these iconic projects, having been fortunate to provide a large range of services on each, including; overall design input, temporary works design, innovative edge protection systems, fabrication and erection of steelwork.
To win three of the five awards, along with the ‘Project of the Year’ award and a commendation is an exceptional result for us and is testament to the dedication, support and remarkable skills of every one of our employees involved.
Chairman of the Judges, Chris Nash said “Again, there has been a high number of quality entries to the Awards Scheme. This year there has been a greater variety in the types of projects entered for the scheme. Scales of entry range from the largest sports building projects, through prestige city and regional office buildings, to smaller educational projects. While there are no residential projects this year, we see an increase in high quality leisure sector projects and footbridges.”
He went on to say that “There are jaw-dropping achievements here, and beautiful gems. I believe everyone involved in the steel construction industry should be proud of what has been achieved, and I trust that the Structural Steel Design Awards reflect the quality of the achievement”.
