Trimble announced today the winners of its Tekla Global BIM Awards, a biennial competition showcasing the world’s most impressive structural construction projects. Unfortunately no winners this year from the Benelux. During the previous edition in 2016 Oostingh Staalbouw won the Global BIM Award in the Sport and Recreation category with the project ‘Sportcampus Zuiderpark’.
The competition, which began in 1999, welcomes projects that exhibit innovation and push the boundaries of structural engineering and BIM. Over 140 projects entered the competition, which included winners of Tekla regional BIM Awards from 36 countries. A committee of five industry experts – Christian Jahn, Elbert O. Speidel, Marina Korol, Craig Garrett, and Jari Heino – selected the winners. The selection committee evaluated the 16 finalists based on an assessment of collaboration, implementation, innovation and constructability.
