Surbana Jurong has won the Platinum Award in the BCA Building Information Modelling (BIM) Awards 2016 Project Category, for the HDB BTO project Blossom Spring @ Yishun. This project comprises six blocks of 14-storey residential building with a total of 1,079 units, one block of multi-storey car park with commercial/community facilities, a precinct pavilion, Electrical Sub-Station and a neighbourhood park.
The project team is elated with this win. “We are extremely proud and excited because this is the first Surbana Jurong and first HDB project to win the BCA BIM Platinum Award. It wasn’t easy as we faced fierce competition from this year’s project submissions of various building types and complexities. We could not have achieved this without the dedication, strong collaboration and hard work from the BIM and VDC teams. At the industry level, I am heartened to see how many companies are leveraging on BIM to achieve better quality, save time and increase productivity,” said Patrick Lee, Director of Architecture.
The project will be completed by May 2018.
Introduced in 2014, the annual BCA BIM Awards recognise the contribution of project teams in their BIM projects implementation during design, construction and facility management stages. The awards aim to encourage project teams to adopt a more collaborative design and construction process by leveraging on the BIM technologies and processes to meet project goals, as well as recognise project teams for their outstanding examples of BIM use in enhancing productivity.
