This year’s Steel Awards, presented by the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (SAISC) and announced on 15th September, range from a railway station in Durban to the steel headgear for a mining ventilation shaft in Gauteng, from a pedestrian bridge in Cape Town to a King’s college in the North West, and from the Athletes Village in Maputo to a skywalk in Johannesburg.

The skyline of the Sandton CBD is rapidly evolving with progress on the extension to Sandton City Shopping Centre which saw the bold steel roof structure atop the new south east entrance court recently completed. The extension, currently under way alongside interior refurbishments, will add a further 30 000m² of retail space to the super-regional shopping centre and fortify its standing as one of Africa’s leading shopping destinations. Julie Hillary, general manager Sandton Region for Liberty Properties, which manages the centre, says the project is due to be completed before the end of this year.
