Esperance Bridge wins Structural Steel Design Award

SH Structures attended this year’s Structural Steel Design Awards and were delighted that the Moxon Architects and Arup designed Esperance Bridge in Kings Cross was one of the winners. The bridge is the second we have delivered for the Kings Cross developer, Argent and the previous scheme, Somers Town Bridge also secured a Commendation back in 2018. The judges comment “An elegant, pragmatic solution that is carefully crafted and beautifully made. This pedestrian bridge adopts the alignment of a historic bridge with its design appropriately reflecting the site’s industrial heritage. Thoughtful detailing of the curved steelwork to create the three-dimensional sculptural balustrade fully exploits the properties of steel and the potential it offers.” The bridge was one of only five projects to secure an award from an original list of over forty outstanding entries.
