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