Budapest, November 20, 2017 – GRAPHISOFT, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software developer for architects, has announced that ARCHICAD 21 has won the prestigious BIM Product of the Year award at the twelfth annual Construction Computing Magazine Awards in the United Kingdom. This is the seventh year in a row that ARCHICAD has been honored with the top BIM product award.
Affectionately known as ‘The Hammers,’ the Construction Computing Awards are nominated and voted for by industry-wide professionals and real users to recognize innovative solutions that are actively deployed and in use today. As one of the few awards covering the use of IT in design and construction, the awards are known for reflecting actual users’ experiences with products for delivering projects.
“Big congratulations to GRAPHISOFT for winning ‘BIM Product of the Year’ for the seventh year in a row. A well-deserved prize and a testament to a product that truly embodies the idea of ‘OPEN BIM’ and the power of interfacing with other software products. One of the many reasons our studio chose ARCHICAD,” said Jonas Upton-Hansen, Director, UHA London.
"We are pleased and proud that ARCHICAD continues to be recognized by our users and readers alike in this annual competition,” said Akos Pfemeter, Vice President of Marketing, GRAPHISOFT. “Our year-on-year success in these awards underscores the value designers attach to the extensive, regular enhancements we make to ARCHICAD,” he added.
Along with the highly coveted product award won by GRAPHISOFT, the company’s client, Bond Bryan Digital, won a third BIM Project of the Year for the ‘LEGO Architecture meets BIM’ project. A blog series related to the project is available here.
