De-Complexing Project Wins Tekla Award

Pinnacle has won this year’s UK Tekla Award in the Industrial Projects category. The Award was for our 3D offshore platform model for a de-complexing project carried out on Shell’s Leman Delta platform in the North Sea.

As winners of the UK Award, we have now been entered into the Tekla Global awards and find ourselves up against projects from around the world.

Pinnacle work with Shell’s construction team to look at the feasibility of de-complexing some of their older platforms to prolong their life span, improve efficiency, and reduce on-going maintenance costs. This de-complexing work involves removing any areas of the platform which are no longer required, carrying out any maintenance and replacements of existing areas, such as staircases and handrailing, installing new pipe systems and energy efficient solar panels to reduce the day to day running costs.

Our competition entry for the project included a 3D model, history of the project, as well as supporting photographs, video, drawings and screenshots to tell the story of how the model was developed and demonstrate how other software / reference models were used to bring it to completion.

Tekla UK run the annual competition that’s open to all businesses who use the Tekla Structures 3D BIM modelling software and is designed to showcase the varied projects being detailed using the software.
