Caudwell International Children’s Centre (CICC) wins pubic projects award

Trimble has announced the winners of its annual UK Tekla Awards 2017 which is designed to recognise projects of all shapes and sizes, which have used Trimble’s Tekla Structures as part of the process for designing and modelling structures.

The public projects award went to Total Steelwork Fabrication for its work on Caudwell International Children’s Centre (CICC) (pictured), an iconic building dedicated to autism diagnosis, therapy and research. The building features a 267-tonne steel frame set on top of a concrete structure with precast H.D. bolts.

According to Total Steelwork Fabrication, the job would not have been possible without the use of the architects & engineers IFC files, which provided the steelwork setting out to start the ball rolling. The firm’s own 3D model was then used to send an IFC model back to both parties to confirm steel setting out. The same models were used in site meetings when the design team would evaluate the required connection detail and assess if they worked with building finishes and other trades.

The public vote went to Billington Structures for its work on Project Beagle – Ingenuity House, a 5-storey, 12,000 sq m, highly sustainable, office building located next to Birmingham International Airport and Birmingham International Railway Station.
