And the winners of the National 2022 BIM d’Or Awards competition are…

After a suspense of many months, the 11 winners of this prestigious competition were announced on the evening of October 17th, 2022 in Paris.

It is a high quality track-record with 2 large-scale and historic projects in both the literal and figurative sense, which you will discover below. It’s to be mentioned that this year, the convergence between AEC and Industry solutions that Autodesk had been anticipating for a long time, as well as the development of off-site prefabrication, as well as BIM level 3 collaboration has become a reality.

Since its creation 9 years ago, Autodesk has been a platine partner of this fabulous competition of Le Moniteur and Les Cahiers techniques du Bâtiment which rewards the best designed and executed projects in BIM.

We are convinced that this competition allows the development of BIM in our country by setting an example, from the smallest projects, to the largest, through categories such as pioneering approaches, CIM, etc. Check out the winners below.

New projects under 5,000 sq. meters category

Thanks to BIM, Technip Energies was able to bring together a multitude of trades in order to create a very state-of-the-art plant. Between an extensive collaboration in BIM level 3, the intense use of openBIM in order to have a wide variety of software interoperating efficiently and the preparation of the prefabrication of many constructive elements, this great engineering seduced the jury by the excellence of its skills that brought 3 worlds together. Finally, AR and extensive implementation on site has enabled a high quality work to progress.

There are no less than three worlds of engineering that coexist within the framework of this 450sq. meters chemical plant on 5 levels with a high density of technical installations: building engineering, mechanics, and piping and electrical networks as well as instrumentation. Thanks to BIM, the data could be integrated into detailed 3D models by discipline, shared on BIM Collaborate Pro, with a real-time collaborative approach of BIM level 3 type. openBIM and IFC interoperability played a key role allowing the actors of the project to gain visibility, in order to make better decisions, and to save costs and time, especially in such a context of interdisciplinary complexity. In the future, a digital twin will facilitate the evolution of installations and initiate a predictive maintenance approach.

The BIM implemented on this exceptional building shows that even VSBs-SMBs and craftsmen can seize it and succeed. More than 142 players were able to collaborate on a collaborative platform based.

The Compagnons du Devoir have chosen to build their new training center in Strasbourg in BIM, since the competition phase. Based on a BIM Execution Plan specifying the collaboration modes, an in-depth technical summary, with DD plans for execution purposes, and a tendering process via a collaborative platform complete this implementation, in particular allowing companies to extract quantities from BIM models and centralize invoicing.

70% of the elements used were prefabricated. And the organization of the site has been optimized: all the equipment has been modeled, for better prevention and performance of flows with the use of an augmented reality helmet, with projection of a hologram on the structure, to check the compliance of the execution with the BIM model.

BIM made it possible thanks to its on-board information, to calculate and control the carbon footprint of this very beautiful project, which was thus able to obtain several high level environmental certifications. Collaboration and interdisciplinarity have been mastered with dedicated collaboration solutions. The resulting digital digital twins will enable efficient operation of this building.

For this renovation of the Blanchemaille site, in Roubaix, BIM made it possible to phase three levels of intervention (demolition of certain elements, renovation of the existing building, and construction of new elements) by integrating the materials to reuse and mastering energy performance.

The BIM also made it possible to measure the carbon footprint of the project via the data integrated into the models and it also allowed the thermal study of the building and the sun study in order to optimize the design of the glass roof and to avoid overheating.

New projects over 30,000 sq. meters


© Nicolas Grosmond

It is a building of incredible scale and extreme complexity that was created using BIM as part of Greater Paris Project (Grand Paris). A hybrid scan saved 30% of the classic cost. The quality of openBIM files was one of the keys to success. Daily monitoring through a PowerBI dashboard allowed the teams of Designers to keep control of the project from start to finish. Finally, the beauty of the building was expressed thanks to quality BIM models.

The magnificent Aulnay Operations Center designed by famous architectural practice Groupe-6, dedicated to the future lines of the Grand Paris Express, was carried out entirely in BIM, from the competition to the delivery. The complete mastery of information and geometry on all the trades of this gigantic project (more than 160 models and 700,000 objects to check) required the implementation of automation and advanced control processes, with dedicated indicators.

The maintenance of the project will be carried out in BIM through a digital twin. The reliability of the inventory and the precision of the layout are therefore essential. A geometric control of the « as-built » was thus carried out at several phases of the construction site using several 3D scanning methods adapted to the typologies, such as drones for surfaces with little or no access. The use of dynamic scanning tools enabled a time saving of 30% on these operations.

Thanks to the scan of its underground heritage, Eau de Paris has managed to create a digital twin in order to have an in-depth knowledge of their patrimony, and to avoid having to bring down more than 2 to 3 people, for greater safety.

The Eau de Paris public establishment is creating digital twins of its existing assets (initiative started in 2018) in order to improve the daily lives of its teams and knowledge of its assets, which represent no less than 2,050 linear kms of water distribution network, 470 km of main aqueducts, seven treatment plants (60,000 sq. meters), 11 tanks (222,000 sq. meters) and 61 offices buildings.

Two major projects served as the basis for this initiative: the construction of a non-potable water booster at the Passy reservoir and the modernization of the Orly drinking water treatment plant. For each of them, the existing structures have been digitized and the new ones designed in BIM. Eventually, the digital twin will complement and connect data from GIS and CMMS software. The ambition is thus to reduce the cost of works.

The Hauts-de-Seine department – part of the Grand Paris region – is developing the digital twin of part of its sanitation networks. It will be used for the operation and maintenance of a vast existing heritage, i.e. 450 kms of networks and 65 hydraulic structures. To do this, Suez has developed a portal to link 3D assets and the flow of operating data. The first step consisted in modeling the existing structures to integrate them into the 3D geographic information system (GIS) of the territory. The second stage, in progress, concerns the deployment of the portal to view assets, manage documents (GED), integrate inspections by drones of pipes, and access data relating to specific elements such as manholes, connections, sensors, etc. by 2030, the objective will be to develop artificial intelligence to detect faults or predictive maintenance. Ultimately, this digital twin will provide better knowledge of underground heritage and limit the risks associated with visits.

This pharaonic project of the 2024 summer games could not be done without BIM as its scale is gigantic. It represents the largest BIM model in Europe with more than 1,500 models over 2 phases (games and heritage) and BIM has made it possible to design sustainable and reversible buildings. The use of a collaborative platform and openBIM proved to be essential for its success. This gigantic BIM and GIS database will allow future digital operation and maintenance.

BIM – made contractually mandatory before the tender phase – was therefore an essential choice for the design and construction of these emblematic structures such as the athletes’ village, the media cluster and the Elancourt hill, as well as for public facilities. built for the occasion. These works will also be reversible, which will allow them to be converted after the Games. The models evolve gradually, from the offer to the final digital twin of the structure which will be its intangible heritage.

Pioneering approaches category


© Spie Batignolles Energie

Spie batignolles Energie has made possible what many companies thought was impossible: the off-site prefabrication of complete factory sections thanks to an intelligent combination of tools from the fields of BIM and industry. This leads to optimization and reduction of time and costs and greater reliability. Through a process combining scan-to-BIM, BIM and industrial modelling, the designers were able to optimize the production chain.

Spie batignolles Energie has achieved this feat of industrializing the construction of factories by taking into account the needs of the customer, the constraints of execution, supply, assembly and finally, implementation thanks to the use of BIM. It is a real integrated approach from design to installation on site. This model, made from a scan and a remodeling, is then enriched over the course of the project to gain in precision and detail. The continuity of information is the key throughout the evolution of the complexity of the project, in order not to upset practices too much, nor lose profitability. On the operation-maintenance side, Spie Batignolles Energies maintains in-house the models of the projects delivered to be able to position themselves on maintenance.

Not for the first time, BIM demonstrates, after examples such as Notre-Dame or the Eiffel Tower, that it is essential for the conservation and maintenance of historical monuments. Through beautiful modeling, the teams involved have recreated a digital double of this beautiful church which will allow its future use with an adapted digital twin.

The use of BIM for heritage buildings remains innovative. In Toulouse, the mission consists of creating a digital model before starting the restoration of the Church of Notre-Dame-du-Taur, a 14th century building.

The document produced will detail three levels of intervention: maintenance and restoration of the building (architectural model), anticipation of safety needs (fire model), and lighting (lighting model). These three models will be georeferenced to guarantee their superposition in space.

A masterpiece of French architecture will be reborn thanks to BIM. Its complexity, which mixes a metal structure enhanced with a glass roof and a traditional stone construction, required the use of a powerful process such as BIM. After numerous scans, a fine modeling of all trades allowed numerous simulations (acoustic, thermal, solar, structural, etc.). The diversity of software used, as well as the use of a collaboration platform, allowed flawless site execution. The project owner will be able to calmly consider the use of the final digital twin for first-class operation and maintenance.

To restore the emblematic Grand Palais in Paris, the teams from Chatillon architectes Arcitectural practice and Ingerop have been working in an integrated cell within the building since 2020. Their objective: redeveloping the 77,000 sq. meters of existing volumes and put them into compliance with current comfort and safety standards. To do this, 35 digital models compiling 15 GB of data and more than 150,000 objects, are hosted on an on-site server.

First of all, it was necessary to represent as faithfully as possible the geometry of this centenary monument. The geometric traces of the 3,000 archival plans superimposed on point clouds and surveying have made it possible to establish a digital heritage diagnosis. The models, completed with aeraulic and thermal simulations, were then used for the design and then for the execution. At the end of the work, constrained by the opening date of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the model can be reused by the client for its operation and the evolution of the building.
