Viewpoint For Projects wins Collaboration Product of the Year for the 11th Consecutive Year
We are proud to announce that Trimble Viewpoint’s Viewpoint For Projects (VFP) solution has won the 2021 UK Hammers Awards, “Collaboration Product of the Year.” This marks the 11th straight year our cloud-based construction document and information management software has earned the honor. Meanwhile, Trimble also walked away with “Structural Engineering Software of the Year” for its Tekla Structural Designer Software offering.
Why Viewpoint For Projects Keeps Winning
Viewpoint For Projects is the UK’s most popular common data environment solution (NBS BIM Report 2020). The solution has helped over half a million people in construction collaborate efficiently, with customers trusting VFP’s robust workflows and security measures to manage their construction projects.
VFP is a cloud-based document management solution which enables customers to share, control and collaborate on project documents with dispersed project teams. VFP provides a single platform for all project documents, drawings, photos and file types and workflows ensure that the right information is shared by the right people at the right time.
Users see one single version of the truth and users can view documents regardless of the software program in which they were created; no native app is necessary. Documents are also available to access offline so that users can still work when no internet connectivity exists.
“Construction software with comprehensive search functionality helps our team search and sort RFIs. Each user has a dashboard linking them directly to items assigned to them, doing away with the need for a manual tracker, and the hours spent updating it” said Charlotte Thornburn, document controller with Sons and Co, a Trimble Viewpoint customer and VFP user.

We are also pleased to announce that Trimble Tekla won “Structural Engineering Software of the Year” for its Tekla Structural Designer product.
Structural Designer is a fully-automated concrete and steel design and analysis solution that enables engineers to deliver safe, effective, and rationalized design more quickly, regardless of structural material. From cost-effective change management to seamless BIM collaboration, Structural Designer helps engineering businesses win more bids and maximize profits.

About “The Hammers” Process:
The Hammers Awards are one of the UK's premier honours for construction technology developers. This year marked the 16th edition of Construction Computing magazine’s awards and the 11th consecutive year Viewpoint has won collaboration product of the year.
Affectionately referred to as “The Hammers,” the Construction Computing Awards represent an excellent opportunity for construction companies involved in engineering projects of all sizes (commercial buildings, residential and social housing, civil projects) to claim recognition for their business and operations undertaken over the past year.
The final results are decided by the Construction Computing Magazine reader base through a voting system combined with the decisions of a panel of judges composed of experts from across the industry.
