Statue of Liberty Museum - 2018 Tekla North America BIM Awards

This new museum features precast concrete panels and glass facade that faces Lady Liberty. With this design, patrons of the museum are always able to see the statue. The structure also features a large stair in the front that leads up to a green roof for a unique vantage point of Lady Liberty. The island required special shipping parameters which required all panels were capable to be shipped on a barge to the site. The project also has a lot of steel interface so there was a requirement to be able to share reference models to ensure the steel structure and precast panels aligned perfectly. The complex shape and design elements of the project made it difficult to visualize the final project. All of these challenges were solved with Trimble solutions: Tekla Structures for detailing and SketchUp rendered augmented reality models which offered the project owner a unique experience by seeing the project using the Microsoft HoloLens.
