"I really enjoy seeing these projects," said
The Tekla Global BIM Awards 2018 winners include:
Eversendai Engineering L.L.C.
"Tekla Structures is a potent tool due to its powerful 3D modeling capabilities and flexible open API options," said Sreenivasa Rao Vipparla, general manager of design and engineering at Eversendai. "BIM management with
Luminary, a 21-floor building with luxury apartments, business, office and parking space, was a challenging complex structure that required a high level of collaboration among its designers, builders and fabricators. With a real-time connection between the design office and precast fabricator, an on-site BIM kiosk and extensive mobile use, the teams involved were able to work together seamlessly and efficiently.
Hinkley Point C – United Kingdom
Hinkley Point C is a new nuclear power plant on track to begin providing low carbon energy to 6 million homes in 2025. This project is one of the largest construction projects in the world, involving over 300 detailers, 3000 workers and 3 million tons of concrete. To keep things running smoothly, Atkins has used BIM to the fullest for this paperless construction. Using Tekla Structures, Atkins has provided a fully integrated 3D reinforcement model as part of the detailed design packages.
Trafikplats Vega –
ELU Konsult AB
Trafikplats Vega, a cast-in-place traffic interchange with five bridges and retaining walls, was a complex project that was designed and constructed without paper drawings. ELU modeled and constructed the complex design using Tekla Structures, and even developed their own components to fit their unique needs.
Arup & PDC Group
Station La Glaciere –
With Station La Glaciere, Baudin Chateauneuf was faced with a big challenge: they needed to construct an identical replication of the staircases of the Metro station line No. 6 within an extremely tight timeline. Using Trimble and
Fatih Yesevi OKUR, Ebru KALKAN, Ergün ERDOĞAN, and Rufai DEMİR –
BlackSea-TORM, an Expo fair building concept design that celebrates sustainability, was developed with an integrated project delivery (IPD) mindset. The students behind the project demonstrated innovative uses of BIM through interoperation, utilizing a variety of other tools together with Tekla Structures. Using a Tekla Open API, they also created a customized "Rufer," a semi-parametric connection detail, for the roof's MERO system.
