The shortlist for The Structural Awards 2013 was released today by the Institution of Structural Engineers, celebrating achievement, innovation and excellence in the field of structural engineering. All kinds of structures are recognised, from skyscrapers and bridges to sports arenas and restoration projects.
It is a truly global shortlist, including entries from Germany, Georgia, China and even Antarctica, as well as many from the UK. The winners will be announced at The Structural Awards ceremony in London on 15 November 2013.
“Structural engineers make an absolutely vital contribution ensuring that our urban environments are safe and secure,” said Y.K. Cheng, President of The Institution of Structural Engineers, “yet their work often goes unrecognised.
“The Institution of Structural Engineers holds The Structural Awards each year to showcase the dizzying variety of challenging environments in which engineers work and the highly complex structures they help to raise.
“The aim is to recognise the astonishing range of skills that characterise our global profession, raise awareness among the general public, and encourage young people into exciting structural engineering careers.”
