Construction in 2015
The best commercial project: The winner was 190,000 m² PTDC Logistics Center in Sipoo, Finland, by Freeway Consortium. The consortium was especially formed to collaborate on this project. In addition to modeling the structures, they used the models on site, monitored and managed the precast unit supply chain with the model and combined MEP and structural models.
The best public project: Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Midfield Terminal Building by China State Constructions Engineering Corporation has 18 unique steel arches that span up to 180 meters. BIM reduced project length and increased productivity, and clash check with Tekla prevented problems on site.
The best industrial project: The 85-meters tall Amager Bakke in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a modern waste-to-energy facility doubling as an 11-floor office – with a ski slope on the roof. MOE A/S used Tekla from the early concept creation to highly detailed design, and the software was utilized also for fabrication and erection planning.
The best sports and recreational project: Daytona Rising in the USA was submitted by the contractor Barton Malow, and includes contribution from many subcontractors. The race track stayed operational during the upgrade. In addition to structural modeling, the team utilized open BIM to plan and manage layout and for project logistics and supply chain management.
The best infrastructural project: Isoisänsilta (Grandfather’s bridge) by a project group with the same name is under construction. The team uses BIM data instead of printing documents for construction. Bidding requests were model-based, and all quantities have been extracted from the model.
The best small project: Mutant Trees by Apex Structural Design are eight 15-meter steel trees with a surface comprised of 500 triangular plates and supporting internal skeleton of tubes. The project started with the artist’s 3D model and Apex created the internal skeleton from the exterior surface.
Special recognition: At the Porvoo Oil Refinery Isomerization Unit A-Insinöörit used building information models and the digital assets of the existing structure and process equipment to design, plan and execute in a very tight schedule.
The winner of the public vote: For the beautiful Opera House at Downtown West Dubai, Eversendai Engineering LLC engineered, detailed, fabricated and installed the structural steel. The Tekla model provided information also for the acoustic engineering company.
The best student project: TongMyong University in South Korea submitted an integrated project model of an extensive building with complex geometry and multiple materials. They replicating an open BIM workflow, typically used for value engineering. Copied from tekla.com
