Emirates Stadium has been honoured in the 2007 Building Awards.

Arsenal's 60,000-capacity stadium scooped the Building Project of the Year Award while Sir Robert McAlpine, the company responsible for the £275million project, won Major Contractor of the Year.

Benny Kelly, construction director of Sir Robert McAlpine, was named Personality of the Year.

It is the sixth time the Emirates has been honoured since construction began in February 2004.

Other awards include Best Built Project Contributing to London's Future, Mayor's Award for Planning Excellence (both 2006 Planning Awards) and Best Mixed-Use Regeneration Project (Building Design Regeneration Awards 2006).
