BIM Competition for Austrian Students. This year for the first time the Austrian SIDE BIM Award will take place. This is a competition addressed to all (architecture) students in Austria, which awards the best BIM projects with prizes. Our goal is to give students an understanding of future orientated planning methods. The software independence is an important aspect of the SIDE BIM Award to clarify that BIM is not a software, but a working approach.

Therefore, it doesn’t matter which software is used to build the models, as long as a native file format AND an IFC file are submitted. The evaluation criteria are mainly based on a practical working method and include for example the information quality of the model or the project complexity. These criteria will be verified in several phases by an expert jury of Austrian BIM experienced specialists.
The best project will be awarded with a prize of 1000 €. Additionally, a second (600 €) and third (400 €) prize will be awarded. Deadline is the 19th February 2017!
