- Allplan wins award for 3rd time
- Award ceremony with around 350 guests in Celle, Lower Saxony

Allplan has been named Architectsʼ Darling® for the third time, following wins in 2012 and 2014. The coveted golden phoenix statue was awarded to the Munich-based BIM experts and providers of software solutions for architects, engineers and facility management at a gala event on 10 November 2016, where Allplan was named favorite manufacturer in the “Architect Software” category. The award is the result of a large-scale survey conducted by market research company Heinze.

“We are delighted to be named Architectsʼ Darling for the third time,” says Michael Koid, managing director of Allplan GmbH. “The vote from architects backs up our claim to offer our customers the best solutions for simplifying day-to-day work on exciting architecture projects, giving them a decisive competitive edge. We therefore contribute to the creation of better buildings.”

Once a year, architects and designers are given the opportunity to vote for and rate their favorite manufacturers. Heinze GmbH presented the Architectsʼ Darling® Awards for the sixth time in Celle, Lower Saxony. Almost 1,600 architects and designers chose the winners in 24 product areas and 7 cross-marketing disciplines.
