Voortman wins Construsoft BIM Award

A nice reward for the efforts of our project team! We won the Construsoft BIM Award 2021 in the category Commercial projects for the Central Park project in Utrecht. In addition, we are also the winner of the Audience Award 2021. This means that of all entries from the Benelux, our project received the most votes from the public.


The jury called the Central Park project 'impressive' and considered it an excellent example of a BIM project that involved collaboration with a wide variety of construction partners from start to finish. For example, within the Construction Consortium Westflank Noord V.O.F. BIM was centrally managed. Through the document management system DocStream the construction partners shared the various aspect models. The exchange was based on Industrial Foundation Classes (IFC), with the BIM basic Information Delivery Manual (IDM) as a starting point. The sustainability of the office building, with an expected BREEAM-NL Excellent certification, did not go unnoticed by the jury either.


Every year, the Construsoft BIM Awards are handed out to the companies and project teams with the best BIM projects, whereby Tekla Structures fulfilled an important role. The jury members judged the projects on the following aspects:

  • the use of BIM and the degree of collaboration
  • the innovative use of Tekla Structures
  • the manufacturability
  • the sustainability
  • the ‘cool factor’
  • the number of votes of the public.


The 90-metre high office building Central Park contains 28,000 square metres office space, 500 square meters hospitality space and more than 110 apartments, with a five-story parking garage underneath. Unique feature is the two-story high inner park, which divides the building into two at a height of 45 metres.
