TAP BIM 2008 Award Winners

The 4th Annual Building Information Model Awards honored projects that used integrated processes and interoperable models. The winning submissions also showed many people giving voice to expansive - and sometimes conflicting - ideas about this advanced technology tool set and the refined business processes BIM enables.

Three awards were granted to projects that demonstrated the significant impact BIM has on business processes and how we can do things better, faster and for less money. BIM enabling Stellar Design was a category widely discussed by this year’s jury and awarded to a project that stands out on many levels of aesthetic, technical and practical design. And the Jury’s Choice Award recognizes the harmony of 133 professionals working around the world collaborating to create millions of square feet of BIM - in one day! The 2008 education category expanded as four universities were recognized after only one award had been granted in this category in the previous three years.
