ArchiCAD-designed Ark Coca-Cola Place is NSW Development of the Year

Australian tower wins fifth major design and construction achievement award, project executed with BIM using Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD


Conceived, designed and documented using Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD BIM software, the Ark-Coca-Cola Place building has won the Rider Levett Bucknall 2011 Innovation and Excellence prize, marking the fifth award for this commercial high rise building in Australia.

This is Australia’s first commercial high rise building completely designed and constructed and handed over as a built model with asset management software using BIM. Designed by Rice Daubney and built by Thiess, Ark-Coca-Cola Place was completed in 2010. The A-grade office tower is in the heart of North Sydney and comprises 21 levels.

“Ark is what design excellence is all about–it is daring, iconic, and a true landmark for Sydney,” said Glenn Byres, NSW Executive Director of the Australian Property Council.
