Design for Airport Terminal
The Corus Student Awards Structural Steel Design has been organised by The Steel Construction Institute, with the sponsorship of Corus, and is one of two popular Undergraduate Prize Award Competitions.
The objective of this competition is to encourage engineering design skills in the use of structural steelwork in an innovative structural solution. The brief has been formulated to encourage the entrants to realise the full structural, economic and aesthetic advantages offered by the use of both open and tubular structural steelwork profiles.
The competition is open to undergraduates.
The project brief has been finalised in consultation with course tutors and those actively involved in designing, detailing and constructing steel structures.
The brief this year is to prepare an outline design for a new airport terminal building and control tower. Entrants are expected to demonstrate individuality and flair in this competition, in addition to showing an understanding of structural design, and to communicate their ideas in a written report with calculations and drawings.
SUBMISSIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY All students intending to submit an entry for this competition should inform the academic tutor in charge of the project at their university, who should submit a Notice of Intent form (page 14) by Friday 18 January 2008. Completed submissions should be handed to the tutor in sufficient time to allow for the selection of the best entry from the university.
SENDING SUBMISSIONS TO THE SCI The chosen submission from each university must be received at the SCI by 4:00 pm on Friday 6 June 2008. Late submissions will not be accepted.
