The Bude Light in Cornwall, a 10m high coloured concrete sculpture by Carole Vincent, is just one of 17 projects awarded Certificates of Excellence by the Concrete Society. Said to be the first use of fibre optic lighting in concrete, the slender cone shape was cast in sections and assembled around a hollow core. Other winning projects include the Great Glass House at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Lloyd's Register of Shipping HQ in London and no less than four stations on the Jubilee Line Extension. Three of these projects will win special awards at the Concrete Society's annual dinner in London on 16 November. This year's awards are sponsored by John Doyle.
