Kingspan Group PLC has won the Innovation in Construction title at the Irish Construction Industry awards, for KingCADD Detailer. The Annual Award Ceremony recognises, encourages and celebrates original and innovative contractors, businesses, teams, consultants and projects that demonstrate excellence in the built environment.

KingCADD Detailer was chosen for its innovative approach to bringing more efficiency to the building process, accelerating workflows and eliminating manual detailing errors allowing users access to Kingspan methodology through the means of a digital tool. Therefore, championing the potential for improved access to information about building materials during the design and detailing phases.

Kingspan have created an automated suite of plugins and templates on top of Tekla Structures, known as KingCADD Detailer, that provides direct access to Kingspan’s product portfolio via digital constructible content. With this, Kingspan gives detailers the power to detail a data rich constructible model using Kingspan products and issue the full cladding envelope for production and construction.

Accepting the award, Martin Conlon, Global Detailing Systems Development Manager said;

KingCADD Detailer creates a more accurate model and by our estimates, will do so in half the time it would take using conventional 2D or manual detailing methods. Its use will also reduce detailing errors. With this tool, it’s as though we are virtually assisting on every project. I am delighted to receive this award and to be recognised by our peers for the hard work involved to bringing KingCadd to market.
