First introduced in 2012 to recognize BIM in Infrastructure projects, this year’s competition now includes Building and Construction categories and will showcase innovative and connected BIM technology use. Categories include 1st and 2nd place for Building, Construction, and Infrastructure projects. There are also categories specifically for small or niche projects, such as fabrication, communication & collaboration, computational design, small & large building construction projects and more. We will also award a Philanthropic Award that addresses the fields of public interest, social impact, community, humanitarian or sustainable design.
5 Reasons to Submit
ONE – MARKET YOUR SPECIALTY
There are NINETEEN award categories. Whether you are a small or niche firm, or a large firm that wants to be recognized for a particular capability, such as fabrication, communication, collaboration, computational design, or more, there is a place for your project! We would also like to recognize efforts in the AEC community that serve the public good. The 2016 Philanthropic Award will consider social impact, humanitarian works, and sustainable design.
