Tekla Global BIM Awards 2011 winners

BIM category winner

Manskun Rasti, Skanska Finland’s head office in Helsinki, was acknowledged for the most complete use of BIM from the beginning to the end of the project. This Skanska project was praised for the extensive use of the BIM and collaboration aspects, as well as the use of IFC for project collaboration and communication for combining the models from different project parties.

“Skanska has done pioneering work by utilizing a highly detailed building information model at every step of the building and construction process with outstanding results,” said the jury. “Building information modeling was used in an exemplary way for maximized collaboration. The project was managed based on the model, with all disciplines utilizing the modeled building information.


Steel category winner


The winner of the steel category, the Peace Bridge located in Derry, Northern Ireland, was modeled by Rowecord Engineering. According to the jury the Peace Bridge is an extremely unique and demanding project which stands out for its shape and complex geometry. The model is impressive not for its size, but in the way it has been used throughout the project.


Concrete and other category winner

The Urban Superway, in Southern Australia by Bianco Precast, was selected as the winner in the Concrete category. The project is the biggest single investment ever in a South Australian road project and the state’s most complex engineering road construction project to date.

According to the jury, the complexity of the project geometry was very impressive. The model was highly detailed including all rebar and post tension strands. This project is even more impressive when considering that the customers are new Tekla Structures users and only had two weeks of training prior to starting the project.


Special recognition

The Holmenkollen Ski Jump project by Cowi and Lecor Stålteknik received a special recognition from the jury for being an extremely impressive project with a unique and complex structure. The model was used throughout the project, also for the erection process.
