Steel projects star at Tekla Awards
Software provider Trimble has announced the winners of its Tekla Awards 2022, which are open to users of Trimble’s Tekla Structures and Tekla Structural Designer software.
The Awards serve to recognise and celebrate the hard work and achievements of those working within the BIM and construction industry.
The Awards are open to projects of all shapes, sizes and complexity and showcase structures modelled using Tekla software within the UK and Ireland.
Steel-framed projects dominated the Awards again this year, with Kings Cross R8 (pictured) winning the Commercial Project. Erected by Severfield, on behalf of main contractor McLaren Construction, this twin 13-storey project was designed by Arup.
The Industrial Project was won by Newhurst EfW facility, which was erected by Billington Structures, while the Infrastructure Project category was awarded to S H Structures’ Stockingfield footbridge.
As the Commonwealth Games are currently underway in Birmingham, it was apt that the Sports & Recreation Project award went to BHC’s Alexander Stadium redevelopment. Meanwhile, in Manchester, William Hare’s The Factory won the Public Project category.
The Tekla Awards are open to all sizes of jobs, and the Small Project was awarded to the Hydro Ness scheme in Inverness. The steelwork for this job was erected by M Hasson & Sons.
Steve Insley, Business Director at Trimble Solutions, said: Every year, we’re all blown away by the standard of entries received into the Tekla Awards and 2022 has been no different. It always amazes me to see the expertise and innovation possessed by our brilliant customers and how our software has been used to help bring some truly incredible structures and transformational infrastructure to life.”
