Seoul, South Korea, 10 April 2018: BIM software, Tekla Structures, was used for designing the Gangeneung Ice Arena for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, held from March 9 to 18, said Wan-soon Park, Country Manager, Trimble Korea.

Speaking on the development, Park said: “Tekla Structures played a crucial role in minimising errors in the entire construction cycle, which includes, designing, fabrication, installation and construction of the arena, within a short period of time.”

Park further said that the arena needed a large open space with pipe trusses, which was fabricated and constructed by Dongbu Steel, who adopted Tekla Structures to create a digital simulation of the steel structure. “The design,” he added, “was based on the data derived from detailed 3D BIM design data in the Tekla Structures model.”
