We Are The Champions Part 2!
Last week we blogged about our winners and runner-up from the Integration and Innovation categories from our Competition. This week we cover those from the Documentation and Presentation categories.
Drum roll please…!
The Documentation category seeks to promote entries that showcase 2D documentation/annotation work carried out within the BIM environment.
The winning entry for this category was submitted by Nurai Shikin from Cox Rayner Architects in Brisbane, Queensland. The description of her entry is as follows:
“This panel shows the complexities of 2D detailing that were created hand in hand with an accurate 3D model in order to convey design intent to stakeholders and resolve complex building approaches and construction techniques. The key being that 3D models can show intent and resolve clashes in the design but the 2D detailing then informs how the final product is brought together and built in the real world. The 3D model was used as a first step in resolving design issues and constantly changing constraints and variations followed by the detailed breakdown of how the design could be built. This process would often then return full circle to inform changes to the model to be checked architecturally and presented again.”
The runner-up entry for this category was submitted by Alex Leese also from Cox Rayner Architects, in Brisbane, Queensland. His entry was for the same project as Nurai’s, so whilst his submission was separate, he and Nurai shared the same project description.
The next and final category of RTC Australasia 2016 Competition is Presentation. This category seeks to promote entries that demonstrate the best of presentation techniques incorporating BIM.
The winning entry of this category was submitted by Richard Atkins from Peddle Thorp in Auckland, New Zealand. The description of his entry is as follows:
“Our challenge was to refurbish the existing Papua New Guinea National Sporting precinct. We had to providing new international competition venues with solutions that integrated the new construction, services – including provision for athletes, spectators and management, within the existing building infrastructure, envelope and structural frame.”
The runner-up entry of this category was submitted by Joachim Clauss from Bates Smart in Melbourne, Victoria. The description of his entry is as follows:
“A handheld point cloud scanner was used to scan the existing heritage listed house. This enabled an efficient and accurate base to construct the Revit Model.”
A big thank you to all who submitted competition entries for RTC Australasia 2016, and congratulations to our victors!
