The 29th Irish Concrete Society Awards

By The Helpful Engineer / On / In Various

The Aviva Stadium, Dublin

I had the pleasure of attending the annual Irish Concrete Society Awards last Saturday night, in the Conrad Hotel, Dublin. It was a very enjoyable night spent catching up with friends and meeting new people.

The overall award and best building award for 2010 went to the new Aviva Stadium, Dublin. This project beat off stiff competition from 23 other projects for the Overall award. Among these were the new Criminal Courts of Justice, The Grand Canal Theater, The Harry Blaney Bridge and many others. The main award results are below:

John Sisk and Sons Limited deserve special mention for being the main contractor on two of the three award winning projects.  A photograph of each winning project is below. I wonder what the nominations for the 2011 awards will be?

The Irish Concrete Society Main Award Winner for 2010, The Aviva Stadium, Dublin
The Irish Concrete Society Infrastructural Award Winner for 2010, Structure B11, Cratloe, Limerick
The Irish Concrete Society Elemental Award Winner for 2010, The columns at Kilsaran Showroom and gardens
