Be part of the international "The Art of Structural Design" contest


SCIA kindly invites you to participate in the next edition of its 2015 user contest “The Art of Structural Design”.

Do you want national and international attention and recognition for your company and its projects?

Then we invite you to send in your projects and participate in this 9th edition of the contest, open to all Scia Engineer and Allplan Engineering users.

Projects will be appraised by an international jury in 4 categories and will then be published in the "The Art of Structural Design" Contest Book. The nominated and winning projects will be made public to a wide audience by extensive press and marketing activities. This will bring your engineering services to the attention of many potential buyers and business partners.

The contest starts on 1 December 2014 and will be closed 28 February 2015.
The closing date will be extended to 31 March 2015.
