A total of 20 projects have been shortlisted for the 53rd Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA).
The winners are set to be announced at an evening reception in London on 28 September.
The SSDA 2021 shortlist is:
David Moore, chief executive of the British Constructional Steelwork Association which is organising the awards, said: “Structural steelwork is the original sustainable material with the ability to be recycled and re-used time and time again to deliver structures that meet the low carbon demands of clients and the climate emergency. It is also able to deliver efficient, practical, and flexible spaces that are both beautiful and cost-effective. 2020/21 has been a challenging year with covid-19, Brexit and supply issues but even with these trials the constructional steelwork sector has remained buoyant and continues to provide high-quality buildings and infrastructure for demanding clients.”
Richard Fletcher, regional business director, Trimble Buildings, which is sponsoring the awards, said: “In its 53rd year, Trimble are delighted to continue to be associated with the Structural Steel Design awards and are further enthralled with the level of excellence in the use of this adaptable and sustainable structural material that they display. The past year has challenged the industry and wider society in ways we have not previously experienced. The ability of the industry to continue to deliver projects of this quality in an ever-changing world, leveraging technology for design for manufacture and assembly, is truly inspirational. Good luck to all those shortlisted.”
