29.06.2012 Award nomination recognises Harsco's work on The Shard

Harsco’s involvement in the famous Shard project in London has earned the company a place on the prestigious list of award finalists at this year’s British Construction Industry Awards.

Harsco’s SAFESCREEN® perimeter safety screen system was used on the Shard as it offered the type of flexibility that could accommodate the great variations in the floor design, the width of the building’s faces and the cladding angles. However, the highly unusual design of this particular building posed some very challenging requirements for any perimeter safety screen system. This prompted Harsco to design a number of new components which would allow SAFESCREEN® to satisfy these requirements and still provide the high degree of safety and protection for the workforce which the project demanded.

The British Construction Industry Awards are designed to recognize outstanding achievement in the construction of buildings and Harsco’s entry for the Product Design Innovation Award category has clearly impressed the judges so far!

The award winners will be announced on 10th October 2012.
