Best structural innovations of the year
What do you think of when you put structures and innovation together? The institution of structural engineers released the shortlist of the Structural Awards 2014 where the winner will be announced on 14th November. As designers and manufacturers of small specialist structures, we were interested to take a look at the project categories and nominations to acknowledge the exceptional work put in by the structural engineers and architects and share our first impressions on the unique, innovative solutions. It has to be said that each structural innovation is extremely inspiring, with all nominations proving that there is no limitation to design and the ability to produce such structures using modern technology.
The Infrastructure of Transportation Structures category is highly impressive and the new spiral staircase at Somerset House and the sculpture at Heathrow Airports terminal 2 in London caught our eye. We look forward to finding out winner is soon.
