Tekla Global BIM Awards 2013 winners
Total BIM category winner:
Puuvilla Shopping Centre, Finland
- Founded on piles, the frame is built with reinforced concrete pillars, hollow-core and cast-in-place slabs and pre-stressed concrete beams, with interconnecting steel pillars and beams.
- Structural design and precast detailing are done by modeling and steel roof structures and facade elements are modeled with Tekla. Architectural, MEP, electricity, and sprinkler design is done by modeling and the existing structures are laser scanned and an inventory model is created.
- Very tight element erection schedule and combining new and preserved structures.
- Many parties worked on the project using Tekla Structures.
Engineering category winner:
Tesco Sheringham, UK
- General design model for Tesco supermarket
- BIM allowed the design team to combine the architect’s and mechanical engineer’s 3D models along with their own steel, timber and reinforced concrete model created in Tekla.
- Model coordination Architect, HVAC and detailers.
Steel category winner:
Patinoire de Gap - Rink of GAP, France
- Renovation of an old skating stadium, keeping the existing timber structures erected in the early 70s.
- The structure is now a mix of timber, steel and concrete. Concrete was used to stabilize the overall structure. The structure includes circular concrete columns.
- The overall geometry is complex, in addition to environmental constraints, existing structures, property boundaries, red zone limits and the nearby stream. The Tekla model allowed to model all the materials including all the cladding and facade material.
Precast category winner:
Kalasatama Fiskari and Fregatti residential buildings, Finland
- The model contains: piled foundations, detailed and reinforced concrete elements, load-bearing structures and thermal insulation and brickwork.
- The most challenging part of the structural design has been the geometrically complex architecture of the façade.
- The architect was also using BIM, which allowed for comparing the models early in the project.
- As the design has progressed, we have always had an up-to-date architectural model available, which we have used as reference in our own design.
Cast in place category winner:
BB&T Ballpark, USA
- A near “total BIM” project, initiated & executed by sub-contractors.
- Not a landmark structure but impressive model based project delivery.
- Concrete contractor modeling for collaborative planning, procurement & pour process.
- Concrete structure + 100% of the reinforcement modeled in detail.
- Communication between Wayne Brothers & Harris Steel employed IFC rebars.
- Layout points used to keep up with design changes & the coordination of as-built information.
- Model coordination with Tekla BIMsight of structural steel, underground utilities, civil surfaces and structural and architectural design models.
Web vote winner:
Baku Olympic Stadium, Azerbaijan
- A monumental project for the Republic of Azerbaijan where major multinational firms cooperated.
- The structure consists of the following structural material:
- Bowl: Precast concrete stand.
- Beneath bowl: Reinforced concrete/ steel rakers.
- Roof: Steel truss / steel-concrete composite column.
- External wall
- Column: Exposed concrete.
- Roof: PTFE-02 (polythylen tetra flouride ethylene).
- Traffic ring: Stone tile
- Communication with the principal designers in Seoul, South Korea, and New York was a success story using BIM tools.
- Precast, reinforced concrete, main and secondary steel structures were all modeled using Tekla Structures 19.0.
Student category winner:
Hotel Katajanokka, Finland
- Course project at Aalto University School of Engineering.
- The students were taught how to use a building information model, and the model was used for demonstration.
- The hotel is six storeys high with an impressive, almost 20 meter long ledge.
- The foundation and frame structure were modeled with Tekla Structures.
