British Airways i360 by Jacobs wins the Supreme Award for Structural Excellence

We are thrilled to announce that British Airways i360 by Jacobs has won the Supreme Award for Structural Excellence at the Structural Awards 2017.

The scheme firstly won the Award for Tall or Slender Structures. This was awarded for structural engineering excellence in projects where height or slenderness presented a particular structural challenge in the design and construction.

The judges then selected a scheme for the Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence from the twelve principal award categories. British Airways i360 by Jacobs was the finest example of excellence in structural engineering design.

The judges commented:

”An illustration of the art and science of the structural engineer working to produce a result that delights at all levels”
