Cape Town airport wins award

Bryco-Gutco JV has won the Architectural, Building and Construction – Projects category of the Stainless Steel Awards programme, sponsored by Rimex Metals (UK) Ltd. The prize was awarded for the use of stainless steel at the International Arrivals terminal of Cape Town International Airport. Aesthetic considerations, along with stainless steel’s high wear resistance and zero maintenance properties were all factors that influenced the judges’ decision. Also among the finalists was Studio 9491 of Hisar (India), for its renovation of the reception and main administrative offices at Jindal Strips factory in Hisar. The client is one of the largest integrated producers of stainless steel in India with a passion for the material. Hence the dominant element of the design concept was the extensive and innovative use of stainless steel in various forms and finishes. Another finalist was Lewis Levin Architects, for the use of stainless steel to build a louvre screen for Metro Mall Towers in the central business district of Johannesburg. As part of a revitalisation programme the Johannesburg Metropolitan Trading Company commissioned a new building to house a taxi rank and market. The building makes innovative use of 3CR12® which, though more expensive to produce than a traditional steel surface, was viewed it as more durable and ultimately more cost-effective.
