New T-pylon structure impresses competition judges | National Grid

The original judging panel behind the new T-pylon design has visited National Grid’s training academy in Eakring for a first glimpse of the fully-constructed towers.

Since the international design competition (organised by theDECC, RIBA and National Grid) was held in 2011, work has progressed rapidly, resulting in a family of six T-pylons spanning a small part of the Nottinghamshire countryside.

Director of Green Planning Studio Ltd, Ruth Reed, was one of the original Judges for the competition in 2011 to find a new design to replace the traditional Lattice Pylon. Ruth is featured in the National Grid video above and is pictured right in the photograph
