Congratulations to CEE PhD student Hesam Hamledari for winning the 2017 buildingSMART Student Project Award for his project on "IFC-Enabled Site-to-BIM Automation: An Interoperable Approach Toward the Integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)-Captured Reality into BIMs”. BuildingSMART is the global organization for open information exchange in the construction industry. BuildingSMART created the Award program to recognize exemplary projects using buildingSMART solutions. Entries must deploy one or more buildingSMART tools or standards, and are judged on how effectively, or how innovatively, they have used these to overcome interoperability challenges.
