Neo Bankside awarded commendation at SSD Awards

The prestigious award ceremony, held at the Museum of London, celebrates the excellence of structural and architectural design attainable in the use of steel and its potential in terms of efficiency, cost effectiveness, aesthetics, sustainability and innovation.

NEO Bankside is a striking residential development on a 1.5 acre site located next to the iconic Tate Modern Gallery on the banks of the River Thames. The award-winning project, a joint venture between Native Land and Grosvenor and designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, is one of the most sought after addresses in London.

The 217-apartment development comprises four separate pavilions providing new public routes from Southwark to the riverfront. The pavilions themselves are characterized by an elegant structural steel bracing system designed by Waterman Structures. The bold and repeating diagonal pattern of external steel bracing used on all four buildings performs a crucial structural role to help unify the site.

The judging panel commented: ‘‘this project is outstanding in its rigour and attention to detail. Intelligently conceived, designed and beautifully built, it is clear that the whole team was immersed in every aspect. The prominent elliptical external structural bracing has a refined architectural quality. The elegant stair/lift cores are a delight. Impressive quality achieved on a design and build project.’’

The renowned development has transformed the unique South Bank site into a vibrant community with shops, restaurants and public spaces.
