by msecadm4921

Corus Bi-Steel has announced its joint sponsorship, with the UK Government’s National Security Advice Centre (NSAC), of the 2007 IHT award for Security in the Public Realm.

The Institution of Highways & Transportation (IHT) award for Security in the Public Realm seeks to recognise excellence in the development and application of security systems in the public realm, to counter established and evolving threats.

The IHT Awards cover the highways and transportation sector across eight disciplines, including; Accessibility, Health and Safety at Work, Innovation, Technological Application, Effective Partnerships, Road Safety, Urban Design and this newly announced Security in the Public Realm category.

What they say

Alistair Haydock, IHT President says: "Homeland security is an issue of prime concern in the current UK climate, and we are happy to welcome Corus and NSAC on board as sponsors of the award for security in the public realm. Bringing personnel and asset protection into the 21st century, both organisations are leading the field in encouraging superior security and protection technologies."

Dr Jurek Tolloczko, Corus Bi-Steel General Manager, adds: "With today’s society facing a range of security threats, protection against explosive blast has become a crucial requirement for many new and existing structures. Bi-Steel is pleased to be working with central Government to support this award which we believe recognises the need to develop ever more sophisticated protective security solutions that can be deployed during heightened times of security risk or installed as a permanent measure."

Corus Bi-Steel designs, manufactures and installs protective structures and perimeter and stand-off protection products. Its steel/concrete composite panels are, it is claimed, easily and rapidly deployable, and can be used for entire structures or specific security and defence applications.


The deadline for entries to the IHT Awards 2007 is January 31. For information on the eight award categories and to download an electronic entry form:
