We were delighted to hear that the Olympic Velodrome has been awarded the 2013 IABSE ‘Outstanding Structure Award’, joining such luminaries as the Millau Viaduct and Gateshead Millenium Bridge.
The award is given to ‘the most remarkable, innovative, creative or otherwise stimulating structure completed within the last few years’. It’s an award which we’re very proud to have received here in the office.
If you’re interested in a bit more background on the design of the velodrome be sure to check out the project page. There’s an abundance of resources from videos of raising the tension cable roof to our recently awarded IStructE paper on the detail of the design from concept to construction.
