By: Admin | Posted on: Thursday October 31, 2019

The Statue of Unity – the world’s tallest statue in India, has been selected for the 52nd Structural Awards 2019. The Structural Awards showcase best engineering projects across the globe.

Most of the shortlisted projects demonstrate how using state-of the- art technologies, such as BIM (building information modelling), can be used to help foster sustainable approaches in the built environment. Following strict judging criteria, shortlisted entries were selected for excellence, creativity and innovation, as well as elegance and detailing. Sustainability, economic viability and value for money were also core considerations.

Chair of the judging panel, Professor Tim Ibell says, ‘Our profession has again demonstrated extraordinary innovation over the past year. The 2019 shortlist offers many great examples of the ingenuity, creativity and skill of structural engineers worldwide. As the guardians of public safety, structural engineers ensure that buildings and bridges can withstand all kinds of loading, but issues such as creativity and sustainability are at least as important in these awards.’ The final results will be announced on 15th November 2019.
