Structural engineer awards 2007 shortlist

The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) has announced the shortlist for the Structural Awards 2007. A record 151 projects were submitted this year, with 46 projects making the shortlist.The 151 projects were entered against 11 awards categories, and from these 46 have been shortlisted. The categories are designed to reflect the breadth of projects for which structural engineers are responsible. The Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence is awarded to the finest example of structural engineering design from the winners of these main categories; the winner of the Supreme Award 2006 was the Sungai Prai Bridge (Malaysia) by Dar Al-handasah Consultants.

Professor David Nethercot, Chairman of the Structural Awards Panel, commented: "Judging this year's record number of entries hasn’t been a task; rather it has been a pleasure. We have had designs submitted from all corners of the world, from organisations of greatly varying size and scope and have seen structures configured to meet all manner of design requirements."

The winning and commended projects for the Structural Awards 2007 will be announced at the gala awards ceremony on Wednesday 14th November 2007 in London.
