Commendation At The 2018 Structural Steel Design Awards!

Billington Structures are proud to have received a commendation at the 2018 Structural Steel Design Awards (SSDA), 50th Anniversary for Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre.

The awards presentation evening was held on Wednesday 3rd October at the Banqueting House in London, and we were delighted that this highly innovative flue tower received a commendation.

The Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre is one of the first buildings to take shape on the central London development, which sets the scene for eclectic and unique architecture.

Although it didn’t come up on top, this is still a fantastic achievement by the entire design team as there were 21 projects running in the shortlist.

The judges had the following comment on the project:

“This project forms the gateway to a new and rapidly developing quarter to the east of London and is a remarkable addition to the heavily urban landscape, both during the day and at night. Steel is used with grace and with flexibility for the future in mind. The collaboration between artist, designers, steelwork contractor and this enlightened client has resulted in a holistically coherent and notable project”.
