Wimbledon Museum Extension

Three steel-framed projects were among the winners of Trimble Solutions’ UK Tekla Awards 2019.

The annual Tekla Awards are open to projects of all shapes and sizes, which demonstrate efficient and effective use of Trimble’s Tekla software during the design, modelling and construction process.

The Wimbledon Museum Extension, which provides extra floor space to the existing lawn tennis facility, won the Small Projects category.

Steelwork contractor ASME Engineering said the use of Tekla software on this scheme improved efficiency and quality, and ensured that the correct, error-free elements were delivered in the right place at the right time.

Curragh Racecourse

The redevelopment of Ireland’s Curragh Racecourse picked up the Sports & Recreation Projects award.

The extremely complex roof geometry of the grandstand was detailed precisely using BIM and Tekla Structures software said Kiernan Structural Steel.

Wellington Place, Leeds

The winner of the Public Vote category was Wellington Place in Leeds, were Billington Structures has provided more than 4,100t of steel for five commercial buildings.

All of the structures were detailed using Tekla Structures, with three units designed in Tekla Structural Designer and models transferred directly between software packages. The other two buildings were designed in Trimble (Fastrak) Building Designer.

Richard Fletcher, Manager Director at Trimble Solutions (UK), said: “We are delighted to have received a great number of entries from our customers for this year’s Awards, all of which displayed innovative, technical and efficient use of Tekla software to plan, manage and execute their projects successfully.”
