The shortlist for the annual Structural Steel Design Awards has been announced by the British Constructional Steelwork Association and Steel for Life.
Held each year to showcase and highlight the appeal of using structural steel in construction projects, this year’s awards feature a range of stunning buildings across the UK.
From the highly distinctive The Curve in Slough, The Leadenhall Building in London and Central Square in Leeds through to a stunning staircase for the Wellcome Collection and West Croydon Bus Station, the 17 finalists offer a stunning representation of a wide range of structural steel buildings. The Structural Steel Design Awards demonstrate some of the ways in which structural steel can be used to create highly distinctive buildings, in projects covering everything from education buildings and infrastructure facilities, through to commercial developments, electricity pylons and bridges.
