Today, the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) reveals the 2023 Structural Awards shortlist, featuring 35 of the world’s most outstanding building projects.
Arup’s York Guildhall Refurbishments has been shortlisted. The project encompassed the restoration and redesign of York Guildhall, a complex comprising Grade I, II*, and II listed buildings. Extensive yet sensitive alterations and structural repairs were undertaken, making the building suitable for use as an inclusive and versatile venue.
All entries have been judged by a panel of experts led by a new chair – Professor John Orr, Professor of Structural Engineering at Cambridge University and a Chartered member of IStructE. The panel used four key judging attributes that exemplify excellent structural engineering achievements. These are: Planet (environmental impact), People (social value and impact on end-users), Process (technical innovation) and Profession (collaboration and advocacy).
The winners will be announced at an awards party on 10th November 2023 in London.
