CSC’s Fastrak Building Designer software has been unanimously voted “Structural Analysis Product of the Year 2010” at the prestigious 2010 Construction Computing Awards, held at The Guoman Tower Hotel, overlooking Tower Bridge in London.

Fastrak is software for automating the design and drafting of structural steelwork buildings, which automatically produces calculations, drawings, material lists, connection forces and column schedules, all from a single model. It also integrates bi-directionally with leading BIM solutions such as Autodesk and  Revit Structure.

“Winning such a prestigious award is a very strong validation of our commitment to the product and our clients,” said Mark Roberts, CEO of CSC. “Our team have worked extremely hard to provide leading edge software for the analysis and design of steel buildings, and this award is a testament to their dedication.”

Also during the event, Sir Robert McAlpine won the “Best Use of IT in Construction (Private Sector) 2010” for London’s Watermark Place development – another project on which Fastrak Building Designer was used for the overall structural design.
