We are delighted to reveal the shortlist for the Structural Awards 2018, featuring 53 entries selected from 115 projects.
Chair of the Structural Awards Judging Panel, Professor Tim Ibell, comments:
“This year we’ve received an unusual and imaginative collection of entries, from sculptural monuments by renowned artists through to a cricket stadium dubbed the ‘Lord's of East Africa’. The shortlist gives a fantastic overview of what’s going on in the structural engineering community on a global scale, highlighting the ambition, imagination and expertise of our profession. We’re delighted to have seen many more new firms entering their work for consideration in our unique celebration of structural engineering excellence.”
The Structural Awards are the world's foremost celebration of structural engineers as innovative, creative design professionals and the guardians of public safety.
For over 50 years, the Structural Awards have showcased the world's most cutting edge engineering achievements. Past winners include iconic structures such as the Sydney Opera House, the Pompidou Centre and the Severn Bridge.
All entries are reviewed by a panel of world renowned judges who are truly passionate about structural engineers’ contribution to society as design professionals.
Our twelve principal categories emphasise structural characteristics and technical expertise rather than the type of structure, allowing for projects of any scale to enter.
Winners will be announced on Friday 16 November at The Brewery, London. The ceremony is a highlight of the industry calendar and a fantastic networking opportunity.
The Structural Awards are organised by The Institution of Structural Engineers, the world's largest membership body dedicated to the art and science of structural engineering
