2017 AEC Excellence Awards

Award winning projects using emerging technology and innovative processes that improve the overall workflow, data information and delivery of a project.

Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Financial Center Project

First place: China Construction Eighth Engineering Division Corp., Ltd.

For China Construction Eighth Engineering Division Corp., Ltd., BIM was integral to success on a complex tower project.

At the outset of the Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Financial Center project, the goal was set for the use of BIM with all employees, specialties, and processes. Not only that, the contract requires the delivery of BIM models to serve the operation and maintenance upon completion (in the precision of LOD500).

China Zun Tower

Second place: China Construction Third Engineering Bureau Group Co.,Ltd

Set to become the tallest structure in the city and in an area prone to 8.0 seismic intensity, CITIC Group’s new $3.5 billion China Zun Tower in Beijing—with a gross floor area of 43.7 million square meters—will reach 528 meters with 108 floors and seven floors underground.

Mikusa tunnel on the Kinki High-way Kise Line

Third place: Obayashi Corporation & ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corporation

As a country of islands, Japan is especially susceptible to the devastation of tsunamis. Since many areas are connected by a single road, there is a high risk of isolation during a disaster. A new highway was recently built to serve for additional transportation, including the construction of the 2,380-meter Mikusa tunnel on the Kinki Highway Kise Line.
