International open BIM Award 2018 for Pontsteiger Amsterdam

Award BIM Pontsteiger Amsterdam Sorba

International open BIM Award 2018 for Pontsteiger Amsterdam

The Pontsteiger Project in Amsterdam has won the building Smart International Award in the category Construction. This award was given to the Pontsteiger project because all the partners involved have developed the building completely according to BIM-standards. Sorba has partaken in the Pontsteiger project with the development of the 70 metre high outdoor ceiling of this unique residential complex.

With BIM different co-operating parties can work together with 3D-models to align the different components. This way the different partners can take into account the work of others to prevent any problems and additional costs. The Pontsteiger project proves that working with the open BIM-standards works and pays off in the long term. That’s why the main contractors Dura Vermeer and De Nijs nominated the Pontsteiger project for the building Smart International Awards. For the 2018 awards 80 projects from all over the world were nominated. The Pontsteiger was awarded with the prize in the category Construction.
