The Structural Excellence Award comes to over 10 years since 2006. It aims to promote excellence in structural engineering demonstrated through the design and construction of buildings and structures completed in the last two years.
There are two categories of entries, namely Projects and Research & Development (R&D). To follow the Government guidance of keeping social distance, Organizing Commitee has special arrangement this year. Jurors have given marks based on the submissions with no presentation required. On 19 February 2022, an assessment meeting has arranged for Jurors to have discussion and making final decision. Project Awards were decided with amphasis on Engineering Approach, Integration, Innovation / Creativity and Unusual Features, Buildability / Constructability / Safety, Energy Effciencey / Sustainbility / Seviceability / Economy and Aesthetics. R&D Awards were selected to the importance to Engineering Application, Theoretical background, Innovation / Originality and Future Impact.
Starting from 2021, a YouTube channel has been created. Videos of all Grand Award projects will be posted there in order to raise public awareness of the Structural Excellence Award and increase exposure for all the Grand Award winners.
Videos for Structural Excellence Award 2022 will be posted soon. All members are welcome to subscribe the channel, like and share the videos by scanning below QR code.
