The winners of the Tekla Global BIM Awards 2014 have been announced.

The global awards celebrate the best the world has to offer in regards to the implementation of Building Information Modelling processes on various building projects that used Tekla BIM products to reach successful completion.

Winners in country and region-specific national ceremonies (such as Finland and the Middle East) moved on into the Global category, which commemorate the best use of flagship software such as Tekla Structure.

Split into six categories – Cast in Place, Engineering, Precast Steel, Total BIM and Student Projects, all potential types of BIM project were given the chance to shine and get noticed, and some majorly discussed developments managed to back-up their hype and scoop top prizes.

The Singapore Sports Hub, a combined project combining various forces such as Arup and Dragages Singapore, took the award for the best in the Steel category. The “partially retractable roof” of the stadium was the key focus of the award bestowment to the 310 meter free-spanning dome structure, the largest of its kind in the world.
