Autodesk has announced the winners of their 2022 Autodesk Excellence Awards. Operated by Autodesk University, the annual series is intended as a celebration of projects that “transform industries and accelerate innovation,” developed using Autodesk software.
The awards are divided into three categories representing three target audiences for Autodesk: 'Architecture, Engineering & Construction,’ ‘Product Design & Manufacturing,’ and ‘Media & Entertainment.’
“From grand buildings to connected communities, from projects that can help us make air transportation more sustainable to solar power kits that provide clean energy to the most remote communities, these are projects that are creating amazing experiences, changing lives, and transforming our world for the better,” Autodesk said upon the announcement of the 2022 winners, each of whom has received a 3D printed metal trophy.
Six awards were given in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction category. The Accelerating Transformation Award was presented to to solutions company Windover Construction for “using state-of-the-art technology to remodel the historic Cabot Street YMCA in Beverly, Massachusetts.” The AEC Innovator of the Year Award was given to John Sisk and Sons for using a cloud-based digital project delivery system on a data center project in Sweden; a method which, according to Autodesk, boosted efficiency by 50%.
The Making a Better World Award went to BuildX Studio for their Zima Homes project in Nairobi, Kenya; a 137-unit community constructed from locally-sourced, low-carbon materials. Meanwhile, the Best Building Design Award went to Shui On Joint Venture for their multi-welfare residential care facility in Hong Kong.
The Best Infrastructure Project Award went to Stantec for their Blue Green Corridors project in New Orleans, while the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo took home the Best Construction Project Award for a “complex design and the first major construction project in Egypt to implement BIM.”
