The Institution of Structural Engineers is pleased to announce that 50-52 Sloane Square has been shortlisted as a nominee for the 2012 structural awards.
50-52 Sloane Square is an exuberant late Victorian building essential to the conservation area and considered world-class restaurant real estate. The building holds four floors of flats above a restaurant at ground floor and basement.
To meet the modern demands for high-end restaurant space engineers used the latest techniques and highly engineered materials to ‘pick up’ the building, in order to lower the basement whilst four stories of apartments remained occupied.
Further shortlisted entries involve some remarkable constructions worldwide including: The London 2012 Olympic Stadium, UK; Titanic Belfast, UK; Adidas Laces, Germany; Al Hamra Firdous Tower, Kuwait.
This year’s entries saw nearly 100 projects submitted and close to 60 shortlisted in 11 categories, the diverse range exhibiting the exceptional work of structural engineers across the world.
Structural Awards’ judge and Institution President John Nolan commented:
“The calibre of entries for the Structural Awards 2012 was outstanding, and it was an enormous privilege to be part of the judging panel. There were more entries this year than ever before and with such high quality across the board, selecting the shortlisted projects was extremely tough.”
Launching in 1968, the awards are now in their 44th year and remain a testimony to how the structural engineering industry continues to raise its standards globally.
The 2012 winners will be announced on 2 November at the Marriott Grosvenor Square, London and the event promises to live up to its reputation as a great evening of celebration for everybody involved..
