Awards 2012

The International Galvanizing Awards recognise the innovative use of galvanized steel by architects, engineers and steel constructors. These awards have been held in conjunction with the industry’s global forum – Intergalva 2012.

Projects were entered through the national and regional galvanizers associations across the world. In total, 46 projects were entered and the winning project was judged through a voting procedure involving all those associations that submitted entries.

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.

This year two projects were identified as joint winners.

In addition to the overall winning projects, Highly Commended projects for each country were noted for their excellent use of galvanizing. These projects are presented in this brochure together with the winning projects.

They are excellent examples of the growing use of galvanizing in architecture and civil engineering across the world. We hope that they will serve as an inspiration to others.
