The Fifth parking garage, under construction by Weitz Co. at Fifth Avenue and Walnut Street in downtown Des Moines, was named the Cast-in-Place winner of the 2019 Tekla North America BIM Awards. The $45 million project was selected for its overall use of building information modeling to support upfront planning and team collaboration across multiple disciplines. The use of Tekla 3D modeling software made it possible to identify and visualize constraints that communicated to the structural engineer, Weitz said in a news release. In total, 13,400 cubic yards of concrete will be required to build the Fifth parking garage, scheduled to be completed by August 2020. The 300,570-square-foot structure will add 750 new parking stalls and street-level retail spaces near Des Moines’ Court Avenue District.
