The Iron Market, Haiti has been shortlisted in The Institution of Structural Engineers, Structural Awards 2012.
"The restoration of the Iron Market is a heart-warming story of how a structural engineer can play a key role in delivering societal value. Faced with limited resources and difficult conditions, the structural engineer demonstrated sound yet novel engineering judgement to develop solutions appropriate to the context, enabling a severely wounded building to once again stand proud as the central hub of activity in the community."
