The Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA) have recognised and rewarded many of the best examples of ambition and innovation in our built environment. Now celebrating their 51st year, the 2019 Awards, jointly sponsored by the British Constructional Steelwork Association and Trimble Solutions (UK) Ltd, continue that great tradition.
This year’s collection of entries once again demonstrates UK excellence in steel fabrication, design and construction.
Again, there has been a high number of quality entries and this year has seen a greater variety in the types of projects entered. Scales of entry ranged from the largest sports building projects, through prestige city and regional office buildings, to smaller educational and leisure projects and footbridges.
Twenty projects made the shortlist, from which judges presented five awards, six commendations and four merits at a gala ceremony held in London on 1 October, where it was announced that Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s new stadium (pictured above) was the 2019 SSDA Project of the Year.
The SSDA’s cross-industry judging panel includes: chairman Chris Nash, Bill Taylor and Oliver Tyler representing the Royal Institute of British Architects; Richard Barrett representing the steelwork contracting industry; Paul Hulme representing the Institution of Civil Engineers; and Sarah Pellereau, Professor Roger Plank and Julia Ratcliffe representing the Institution of Structural Engineers.
