Cape Town Stadium is Overall Winner of Steel Awards 2010
In a year in which some of the most outstanding entries since the inception of the Steel Awards were received, prompting Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (SAISC) executive director Dr Hennie de Clercq to say “perhaps the best ever”, Cape Town Stadium has been named the overall winner of Steel Awards 2010.
The SAISC hosted the Steel Awards, held concurrently in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town on the 15th September 2010. The Aveng Group was the main sponsor.
The judges said that the Cape Town Stadium was a magnificent structure with some of the best steelwork they have ever seen. “The execution of the steelwork, some of it fabricated locally and some of it imported, is testimony to the genius of the project team, which comprised engineers, fabricators and contractors from all round the globe in a collaboration of which they and the whole country can be proud.”
They added that this project has been an eye-opener to the excellence that can be achieved in the industry with lasting benefits for local industry generally. “The transfer of knowledge and skills will play a significant role in future projects,” they said. “In particular, the use of lighter steel structures - slender members and cable structures - will increasingly manifest itself in our industry.
