Our Central London Stone Stair received a Commendation at The Structural Awards 2015 ceremony held on the 13th of November, 2015. Steve, Andy and Alex were delighted to collect the commendation for this "entirely stone structure whose graceful and naked honesty demonstrates the engineer's understanding of stone, of complex structural forms, and the need for very clever jointing!"

Commenting on the project the judges said "This project presents an intellectual interplay of solidity and flexibility, facilitated through the skill of the structural engineer. The consideration of the erection sequence in combination with the painstaking, calculated prediction of forces led the judges to draw parallels with a three-dimensionally creative game of chess, in which the progressive move and countermove of load and deflection are skilfully played out in order to checkmate gravity."
