Easton Helsinki is the winner of Tekla BIM Awards 2017!

The level of Tekla BIM Awards 2017 competition was extremely high. There were many projects that had potential to win. After a long consideration about the model and the use of the model information in the construction processes, the jury agreed on the winner unanimously. The jury paid attention especially to model-based cooperation and versatile use of model information in preparation, manufacturing and construction phase. Additionally, the use of the model by the owner and the end-users of the building was appreciated.
