2009 Awards

The European Galvanizing Awards recognise the innovative use of general (batch) galvanized steel by architects, engineers and steel constructors. These awards have been launched this year in conjunction with the industry’s global forum – Intergalva 2009.

Projects were entered through the national galvanizers associations that are members of EGGA. In total, 37 projects were entered and the winning project was judged through a voting procedure involving all EGGA member countries.

Projects were evaluated for their effective and innovative use of galvanizing in architecture and civil engineering, as well as the functionality and aesthetics of the structure. Special attention was also given to demonstration of the contribution of galvanizing to sustainable construction. The entrant’s approach towards galvanizing and its incorporation in the design stages was also considered important.

In addition to the overall winning project, nine Highly Commended projects were noted for their excellent use of galvanizing. These projects are presented in this brochure together with the winning project. They are outstanding examples of the growing use of galvanizing in architecture and civil engineering across Europe. We hope that they will serve as an inspiration to others.
