Structural Excellence Award 2012
The Structural Excellence Award (formerly Structural Awards) aims to promote excellence in structural engineering demonstrated through the design and construction of buildings and structures completed in the last two years. The first award was held in 1998/1999 and this year is the fourteenth event. On 17 March 2012, the Judging Panel short-listed seven finalists. Following site visits and project presentations on 21 April 2012, awards were decided with emphasis on engineering approach, innovation/unusual features, buildability, sustainability/durability, energy efficiency/environmental consideration and aesthetics.
There are two categories of entries, namely Hong Kong Projects and Mainland/Overseas Projects. Grand Award of Hong Kong Project goes to the Tin Shui Wai Public Library cum Indoor Recreation Centre, and Grand Award of Mainland/Overseas Project goes to the China World Tower, Beijing.
