PRACTICE
ORIAM WINS STRUCTURAL STEEL DESIGN AWARD

We are delighted that Oriam, sports performance centre in Edinburgh has won a Structural Steel Design Award.  The judges comments were:

'Two parallel vaulted forms spring from a central spine; the larger one covers a football pitch, whilst the smaller covers a sports hall. The elegant lightweight steel trusses resulted from a collaborative effort by the designers and contractor, with the construction methodology informing the roof structure and supports from which it springs.

Striking and effective steelwork.'

Marcos and Eve, Project Leader and Structural Engineer on the project were at the ceremony to collect the award, along with Angus Cormie from JD Pierce Steel Fabricators.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the project - Reiach and Hall, Bowmer Kirkland, JD Pierce and Heriot Watt University.

Fingers crossed for the BCIA awards next week and the Structural Awards in Novermber!
