The redevelopment of London Bridge station has won the prestigious ‘Building of the Year’ accolade at this year’s AJ100 awards held at an exclusive gala dinner and awards ceremony in the Tower of London.
Designed by Grimshaw Architects, and containing striking architectural metalwork manufactured and installed by SAS International, London Bridge station was the ‘natural winner’; commended for its sustainability, ingenuity and modest grandeur.
Judges praised all those involved in the design and installation, using the project’s superior design and delivery as an example of construction at its very finest. The judges celebrated Grimshaw’s original design, explaining it ‘reconnects the tissue of the city’, in what has now become a core civic environment for London’s population.
Speaking on SAS International’s crucial involvement in the London Bridge station project, Construction Director, Rik Lenney said: “We are delighted London Bridge station has won another incredible accolade. An outstanding achievement for all those involved”.
