Olympic Aquatics Centre roof among the winners at steel design awards

The Legacy Roof which spans the London 2012 Olympics Aquatics Centre is one of four Award winning entries in this year’s Structural Steel Design Awards, which were announced at a special ceremony at London’s Imperial War Museum yesterday (8 July 2010).

The three other new structures that the judges felt equally worthy to stand alongside the iconic Olympic structure are Audi West London, the Infinity Footbridge in Stockton-on-Tees, and Dublin Airport Terminal 2.

The awards are now into their 42nd year, recognising the excellence achievable in structural and architectural design with the use of steel. Judges selected the Award winning entries from a shortlist of 17, all of which scored highly in efficiency, cost effectiveness, aesthetics, sustainability and innovation.

Judges Chairman David Lazenby said the 2010 entries compared well with those of any year since the awards scheme was launched in 1969.

“In challenging situations, the teams involved in all of the shortlisted schemes have acted in concerted efforts to produce some outstanding results. This year has brought forward a great demonstration of the industry’s strength and capabilities,” said Lazenby.
