All competing projects have been published on our website, and the public voting period to decide the people’s favourite has closed. The winners will be announced in June and the winner’s luncheon will be organised for July depending on the government guidelines at this time.

The winners of the UK competition* will be entered into the Tekla Global BIM Awards which will take place in 2022.

*The Tekla Structural Designer Award is UK and Ireland only.


Every year the winners of each category are invited to join us for a celebratory lunch where you can enjoy a day out from the office with delicious food, outdoor activities, and networking amongst other award winners.* In addition to the celebratory lunch, each winner will receive an engraved trophy for your cabinet and a framed certificate for your wall. As well as benefiting from the publicity created by Trimble’s promotion of the awards.

*Awards luncheon ceremony dependant on government guidelines surrounding COVID-19. If the luncheon cannot take place an alternative prize will be offered.


Our judging panel will be looking for:

► Collaboration between multiple participants, use of IFC and open BIM.

► Innovation through solving challenges with Tekla Structures or Tekla Structural Designer, perhaps a multi-material aspect or complexity of geometry.

► Have you used our Tekla Warehouse content? Perhaps you have written your own API to solve problems you were faced with.

► Most importantly the cool factor - Uniqueness of the project and creativity in the project execution.

All projects entered are reviewed by our judging panel who then decide on the winners of each category. Alongside this, there is a public vote which allows the public to review and vote for their favourite project entry.


In 2020 it was fantastic to see two of our UK category winners being recognised in the Global BIM Awards. Mason Navarro Pledge received a Special Recognition for their Tekla Structural Designer entry on Twickenham Riverside Development Bid and Solve Structural Design winning the commercial category with their project ‘One Nine Elms’.
