Winners of the 2023 Structural Awards announced

Date published

We are delighted to announce the winners of the Structural Awards 2023, in a celebration of some of the world’s most impressive structural engineering achievements.

The Structural Awards celebrate the very best projects from the global structural engineering community. From a shortlist of 35 projects – including national landmarks through to cleverly-designed smaller structures – eleven winning projects were selected.

The highlight of the evening was the announcment of the coveted ‘2023 Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence’. This was awarded to Canadian-based structural engineering and timber construction firm, StructureCraft for its work on The Nancy Pauw Bridge in Banff, Alberta, Canada.

The 80m bridge spans the Bow River, connecting the town’s Central Park to its Recreation Grounds, and pays tribute to Nancy Pauw, a well-known Banff resident and keen cyclist.

Judged according to four core attributes: Planet, People, Process and Profession, this year’s overall winner perfectly encapsulated IStructE’s increasing focus on the societal and environmental role of structural engineers.

The prestigious award not only recognises a commitment to sustainable construction but also showcases StructureCraft’s impressive skill and ingenuity.

Commenting on this year’s winners, Chair of the Judging Panel and Chartered Member of the IStructE, Professor John Orr says, "A massive congratulations to the StructureCraft team. Its work on the Nancy Pauw Bridge not only demonstrates the vital and important work structural engineers perform, but it showcases their unique problem-solving skills and ability to deliver structures which impact positively on social and environmental issues."
