Paul Wallett, area business director-UAE, Tekla Middle East, said: “We’re long-time supporters of the Middle East’s construction market, with our BIM software driving many of the region’s most important and complex projects.
“As the region’s construction market continues to boom, the Big 5 will enable us to use our expertise to develop localized BIM solutions for cost-effective and error-free collaboration.”
Sixco has used Tekla’s BIM software for the construction fit out and furnishing of the 60,000-seat world-class stadium that will be the centerpiece of the King Abdullah Sports City, set to be one of the world’s most advanced sports complexes, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
And Eversendai has used Tekla’s BIM software for the engineering of the steel structural frame of Abu Dhabi’s Masdar Headquarters, one of the most sustainable offices in the world; and the new passenger building at Oman’s Salalah Airport, boosting its annual airport passenger capacity to 2m.
The Big 5, where more than 2,500 manufacturers and distributors from 65 countries are displaying more than 30,000 innovative products, is set to run from tomorrow (Monday) through to Thursday at Dubai World Trade Centre.
