Istanbul Metro International Excellence Award; Turkey's giant project continues to come international awards. Last but not least, the Istanbul metro won the grand prize at the AEC Excellence Awards 2019, one of the most prestigious events in the world. This year conducted by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality in a first contest that took place on behalf of Turkey Istanbul General Rail Systems Design Services, and applying the Ümraniye-Flat-Göztepe Metro project Yuksel Project, Building Information Modeling (BIM) designed using both project also won the grand prize.
AEC Excellence Awards, where the projects realized with Autodesk software around the world competed and this year's 8. Were defined as the oscars of the sector. Projects using BIM and new technologies in architecture, engineering and construction from all over the world; infrastructure design, superstructure design and construction categories. Turkey's application for the first time from the 40 230 countries; Moreover, the award ceremony of the contest, where he won multiple championships with the 2 project, was held at the Autodesk University event in America. Aslı Şahin Akyol, IMM Rail Systems Projects Manager received the award in the “Infrastructure Design-Medium Scale Projects” category, while Gülermak-Nurol-Makyol and Yüksel Project team received the award in the “Infrastructure Design-Medium Scale Projects” category. An award for the projects will be given at 3 Autodesk Construction Industry Summit which will be held in Istanbul in December.
The Istanbul General Rail System Project, whose design works have been commissioned by the Yüksel Project-Metro Istanbul Partnership by the IMM Rail System Projects Directorate, includes the design of a 2023 km subway line, which will consist of 5 stations connected to the existing 11 metro lines when completed in 16. During the preparation phase of the project, which is a very challenging work, an integrated BIM platform was created that unites different disciplines under one roof. It is noteworthy that the project, which includes an important model to reduce time and cost, is an effective coordination example that will guide other phases in the design phase.
16 cost savings with BIM
The construction works are carried out by the Gülermak-Nurol-Makyol joint venture in Ümraniye-Ataşehir-Göztepe Metro project, which has a length of 13 km and 11 station. 500 won the first place in the category in which the projects over $ million were subsided and BN technologies used in the project saved approximately 16 cost savings.
World from Turkey across the thousands of projects from 2 projects simultaneously to win prizes, Turkish companies stated that their is an indication of the high level reached in construction and infrastructure projects Autodesk Country Leader Turkey Murat Tüzüm, "National and become one of the prerequisites for being able to take part in international projects, BIM-compatible to work With the right planning and collaboration tools, it helps ensure the highest efficiency in the implementation phase. We thank all the stakeholders of the project that contributed to the success. ”
Mete Baykır, General Manager of Yüksel Project, said, esi The award of our high level engineering solutions in this way is the biggest motivation for us in the production of new projects. On behalf of our country and our sector, we are happy and proud. ”
