"The competition this year has been very intense as there were many great models competing and shortlisting the best one out of the lot wasn’t easy,” admitted Paul Wallett, Regional Director of Trimble Solutions Middle East and India, ”even though we had an overwhelming response from the public votes, to elect the best project that has incorporated BIM and other modern techniques to execute their projects, as well as to make an unbiased final verdict, we also involved Jury members from outside of Trimble to analyze each project and pass their judgment.”
“We needed seasoned Jury members whose contributions would truly do justice to the competing projects, and we were lucky enough to get accomplished members like Denis McNelis from BAM International, and Patrick O’Callaghan from Off-Site Engineering Solutions. We can’t thank them enough for their priceless contributions and we hope they participate with us again in the years to come.”
Trimble's Tekla BIM Awards 2020 is now open and has started accepting model designs - projects of any size and complexity are welcome as the competition accepts entries from various categories like industrial projects, commercial projects, educational projects, etc.
