Five Dubai-based projects honoured for innovation
The projects were named among the most innovative and least wasteful in the world.
At least five mega infrastructure projects in Dubai have been recognised at the Tekla Global Building Information Modeling (BIM) Awards for innovation and environmental friendliness.
The awards honoured the projects for leading the use of 4D digital models that can “enhance productivity and collaboration”, according to Gulf News.
The projects, which include The Castle Kingdom at Legoland Dubai, Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal, Al Habtoor City Theatre, Dubai Opera and NAS Arena, were named among the most innovative and least wasteful in the world.
Paul Wallett, Regional Director of Trimble Solutions Middle East said: “This year has been a seminal moment for GCC construction innovation, and 2017 will see continued momentum with government BIM directives, 3D printing and pre-fabrication, and BIM gaining wider take-up.
“The UAE’s strong showing in international awards demonstrates the country’s standing as a global BIM leader.”
Celebrating the innovation that goes into creating complex and iconic structures around the world, the awards' recognition of the projects hold as a testament to the effort of the UAE government and companies in driving the adoption of BIM in infrastructure projects.
