New Steel Construction have released their Annual Review of highlights from 2017. Which provides a highly deserved showcase for the astonishing depth of UK design, fabrication and construction skills used on steel projects of all shapes and sizes.
Within the Annual Review it includes the SSDA Awards, which has just celebrated its 49th year. Some of the projects included were worked on by STRUMIS users, so we would like to use this opportunity to showcase some of the brilliant projects that our customers have worked on.
Project Of The Year
The Leadenhall Building, London
Architect: Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners
Structural Engineers: Ove Arup & Partners
Steelwork Contractor: Severfield
Main Contractor: Liang O’Rouke
Client: CC Land
Commonly referred to as the Cheesegrater. The Leadenhall Building was designed as a wedge shaped structure in order to meet the client’s aspiration for an outstanding City of London landmark tower.
The steel design is said to allow the floors to be exceptionally open, with views in every direction and spans of up to 16m.
"The use of steel is fundamental to the value of the building. It is visibly integrated into the architecture to an extent that is highly unusual for a skyscraper, creating a powerful tectonic quality,” says Arup Director Nigel Annereau.
