buildingSMART International Awards 2021

The 2021 Awards Finals took place during the second week of the buildingSMART International Virtual Summit Autumn 2021, concluding with an Awards Ceremony on Thursday 7th October. All finalists presented their projects during the Summit and a small finalist jury (from an original Jury of 154) deliberated following the presentations to select a winner from each category.

2021 saw an astonishing 133 submissions across the 8 categories, 86 of which passed the triage stage. A total of 9 winners were announced at the Awards Ceremony, alongside recognition of the other 12 finalists and 7 special mentions.

A short introductory video, PDF overview, full submission, and final presentation for each of the winners, finalists and special mentions can be found below.
