From a football stadium and Wimbledon No.1 tennis court, to a footbridge and a seal viewing hide, the recent Structural Steel Design Awards offered a fantastic insight into the versatility of steel construction.
The Project of the Year prize was won by Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s New Stadium ; an incredible building constructed on a site which overlapped much of the land taken up the old White Hart Lane ground. Featuring a sliding pitch, steel was central to the structural design of the new stadium which as a 62,000 all-seater capacity.
London’s Coal Drops Yard also won an award; a shopping outlet which was recently opened in King’s Cross, Coal Drops Yard has a curved steel structure which spans the space between to restored Victorian buildings to provide an impressive roof structure. Greatham Creek Seal Hide in Middlesborough was recognised for providing a legacy structure for those who visit the popular destination for those wishing to photograph and view the area’s abundant seal and birdlife population. Lightweight yet highly durable and corrosion resistant, the Greatham Creek Seal hid strike fits the coastal landscape perfectly.
These are just a few examples of the steel construction projects awarded prizes in the 2019 Steel Design Awards. We think they showcase perfectly the versatility, flexibility and durability of steel.
