Billington shortlisted for the 2018 Structural Steel Design Awards!
Billington are delighted to announce that they have once again been shortlisted for the 2018 Structural Steel Design Awards!
Alongside fierce competition and 21 other projects, Billington are proud that project Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre has been deservedly recognised and shortlisted. The Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre is one of the first buildings to take shape on this development and sets the scene for the eclectic and unique architecture of the rest of the development. The Energy Centre will house technically advanced boilers to heat the thousands of new homes and businesses to be built on the Peninsula and will serve the largest residential new-build district heating system in Europe.
Billington has erected 345 tonnes of galvanised steel for the flue tower, which has been formed with five ladder frames each placed 4.5m apart.
Although several challenges were presented due to the complexity of the design and build, a unique structure has been produced which forms part of a highly anticipated central London development.
The awards presentation evening takes place on 3rd October 2018.
