At the Nationale Staalbouwdag 2014 (Steal Expo) Rotterdam Centraal was chosen as winner in the category commercial construction. The prize was awarded to the whole project team of Rotterdam Centraal: the clients (ProRail and Gemeente Rotterdam), architects (Team CS), structural engineers (Ingenieursbureau Rotteram and ARCADIS) and builders (Iemants and TBI Rotterdam CS).
From the jury report we can quote: â€œThe result of this comprehensive renewal of the station must be praised in many ways. The jury acknowledges the award for the clear-cut use of the material steal. Especially the roof over the track, with its purely industrial look, is of exceptional quality and offer a nice spatial atmosphere. Steal has also been utilized to solve logistic difficulties during construction. The projectâ€™s complex composition was only possible in steal. This has been executed virtuouslyÂ from an integral concept for a large scale restructuring of international standing on a limited footprint. The work of the constructor, and the coordination between underground and above ground, deserve all the credits.
