The UK Tekla Awards celebrate the success of projects modelled using Tekla software in the UK and Ireland.

The awards create an opportunity to showcase your work, publicise your company and acknowledge and reward the hard work of the project team. Projects of all sizes, complexity and that demonstrate collaboration and innovation are welcome.


The program of local and global Tekla Awards has been running for many years to recognise the hard work, innovation and pride that Tekla customers put into their work.

The UK Tekla Awards 2018 winners will progress to the Global Tekla BIM Awards 2018 alongside the winners from the 2017 UK Awards.


Each year the winners of the UK Tekla Awards are invited to join us for a celebratory lunch where you can network with other winners, perhaps take part in an outdoor activity, and enjoy a delicious lunch away from the office in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition to lunch you will receive a trophy for your cabinet, a certificate for your wall and we will create a press release for your use, as well as benefiting from the publicity created by Trimble’s promotion of the awards.

All category winners are submitted to the Global Tekla BIM Awards 2018.


The deadline for entries is 6th April 2018 so please submit your project as soon as possible. All competing projects will be published online, and there will be a public voting period to decide the peoples favourite. The winners will be announced in May and the winner’s lunch will be organised for June.

The winners of the UK competition will be entered into the Tekla Global BIM Awards which take place autumn 2018.


We will be looking for: collaboration between multiple participants and use of IFC and open BIM; challenges solved with Tekla; perhaps a multi-material aspect or complexity of geometry; and most importantly the cool factor - uniqueness of the project and creativity in the project execution.

All projects entered are opened up to review by the public, who then vote for their favourite.


The closing date for entries into the UK Tekla Awards 2018 was Friday 6th April. This was your opportunity to promote your project, so think about what you want to say before you start. What is unique or innovative about the project? Why did it work well? How did you company or the project team benefit from the model?


The Tekla Awards has a special category for students. Entering your project to the competition is a great way to highlight your talent in civil and structural engineering or construction management. The competition offers students a way to showcase their skills among the most iconic projects in the industry.

The student projects may be carried out individually or in teams of maximum five members.
