We are delighted to announce the winners of the Structural Awards 2022.

The Structural Awards celebrate the very best projects from the global structural engineering community. From a shortlist of 41 projects – including national landmarks through to cleverly-designed smaller structures – ten winning projects were selected.
 

Following the introduction of new judging criteria this year, winning projects all exemplify creativity and professionalism in response to society’s changing requirements. Judges assessed against four key criteria: 

• Process (technical innovation) 

• Profession (professional advocacy) 

• People (social value) 

• Planet (environmental impact) 

The highlight of the evening was two projects jointly winning the Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence: HYLO (a transformative retrofit project) and The Arc, Green School (for its ambitious structural use of bamboo). The judging panel, led by former IStructE President Professor Tim Ibell, were deeply impressed by the solutions developed by structural engineers AKT II and Atelier One.
 
On HYLO, AKT II added 13 new storeys on top of an existing 16 storey building; effectively cashing in on previous carbon footprint to save carbon on the extension. On the Arc, Atelier One used research, creativity, and use of local raw materials, to deliver a spectacular project with natural materials at its heart.
 
Commenting on this year’s Awards, Professor Tim Ibell said:
 
“We’ve seen a truly remarkable set of submissions this year and I’m hugely encouraged, not only by the calibre of entries but how structural engineers worldwide are stepping up to the huge social, economic and environmental challenges society currently faces.”
