“Originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the Space Needle is an international icon of the Pacific Northwest and a symbol of Seattle. Now the famous landmark has won the Engineering News-Record’s Project of the Year for Best Renovation/Restoration and we are delighted that SPS was an important piece of the overall winning formula. The scheme, known as the Century Project, was a $100m renovation and significant redesign that has preserved the Space Needle’s legacy by creating a new visitor experience. “
