Tekla International Recognizes Work of Sutter Team!
Tekla International — a global software solution company dedicated to improving the building and construction industry by offering solutions to improve quality, cost-efficiency, and sustainability — has named its 2010 Global BIM (Building Information Modeling) Award recipients. Congratulations to the Sutter Medical Center team for earning both the BIM project category and the public vote.
“The winner of the BIM category, Sutter Medical Center, has been carried through on stringent schedule and costs with outstanding results,” said the jury. “Building information modeling was used in an exemplary way of maximized collaboration. The project was managed based on the model with all disciplines utilizing the modeled building information and fitting in a huge amount of HVAC pipes and equipment needed for a hospital to function.”
Entries to the Global BIM Awards competition were the winners of regional Tekla model competitions held by Tekla area offices and resellers during 2010. The competition was divided into three categories: BIM, steel, and concrete. Tekla Global BIM Awards 2010 gathered nearly 50 exemplary construction projects around the world and nearly 1400 votes for the varied Tekla models presented on the competition website.
