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.
Voters appreciated that ARCHICAD 23 delivers unprecedented software responsiveness, advanced modeling capabilities for prefabricated structures, and best-in-class multidisciplinary workflows. Most notably, ARCHICAD 23 significantly improves the speed of the most essential daily processes such as software startup, file opening, working in multi-project environments and navigating between different views of the BIM project; the brand-new Opening, Column and Beam tools increase modeling accuracy and interoperability with engineering disciplines.
Award-winning BIMx features the Hyper-model, a unique technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. BIMx helps bridge the gap between the design studio and the construction site.
