Tekla UK BIM Awards 2012 entries
400kV HIS access platform

This project is considerably more complex than usual platform structures due to the complexity of the HIS structure. Multiple platform levels, a crowded foundation, limited design information and...

Bethnal Green Memorial

The mould formation and reinforcement design has been particualrly difficult and has required many hours of careful co-ordination between the architects software and Tekla Structures with the...

Blacon Crematorium

One of the biggest challenges on this project was the accurate site positioning of the purlins. As each purlin attached to the supporting glulam rafter at a unique angle/position then the supporting...

Ewijkbrug bridge refurbishment

All these BIM interoperability techniques helped to make the model more understandable, reduced time by increasing workflow and reducing potential clashes occurring on site...

Feature stair, Bond Street

The timber handrail was CNC machined directly from the Tekla model to ensure maximum accuracy. The treads were granite also manufactured from templates created by the Tekla model...

Goodwood Festival of Speed

S6mm thick metal shapes that are then rolled up and joined into three dimensional objects. The result is a lightweight and extremely strong and rigid thin-shell structure...

Jarrold footbridge

The bridge is supported at the two abutments and on two slender stainless columns which accentuate the impression of the bridge floating over the water. At each abutment there are two...

Leeds Arena

With so many sub contractors providing major elements of the structure that required prefabricated connection to interface on what was to be a complex geometry, it was clear that a BIM...

Mining conveyor

The project was around 50 tonnes and had 20 metre gantry frames within its 290 metre length. There are many trestles along its length and the editing and manipulation tools helped with...

National Museum of Qatar

The key challenges for the design resulted from the highly complex geometry of the disc interaction. No two discs are the same; no two discs intersect each other in precisely the same way...

Reading station redevelopment

Canopy fixings to the transfer deck were coordinated by the exchange of IFC files between the two softwares, enabling efficient workflows and ensuring best fit. The complexity of the...

St Helens footbridge

The bridge arches required some extremely complex fabrication for each of the base plate connections. Before any steelwork arrived on site, however, we liaised closely with Galliford...

The Emirates Air Line, London

We used the Tekla software to export lines and face information for our surveying team to create manufacturing jigs and provide accurate quality assurance survey info to the client...

The Shard

The timber handrail was CNC machined directly from the Tekla model to ensure maximum accuracy. The treads were granite also manufactured from templates created by the Tekla model...

Magnox ILW ISF, Berkeley

The structural engineers model was imported using the industry standard open IFC format into Tekla Structures and used this as a base to produce the cast in-situ reinforced concrete details...
