Trimble and the Nemetschek Group, the renowned solution provider in digital modeling for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries, make a partnership to widespread the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) over the whole Design-Build-Operate (DBO) lifecycle of buildings. This amalgamation will speed up the synergistic methods to design modeling and 5D construction management with consolidation of data amid a wide array of the companies’ products.
Trimble and Nemetschek plan to expand their voluminous international market and technology know-how and work together on programs to bring a significant change in the expansion and implementation of technologies in favor of the AEC industry and building owners.
Both the companies undertake the following initiatives :-
- Evidently allocate data formats for developing new solutions and advance workflow interoperability amongst selected products over the DBO lifecycle;
- Bridge the gap between Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) solutions & real data from the ground and real objects in the concrete world;
- Promote interoperability and the durability of project data for the complete project lifecycle;
- Sustain their specific strong commitments to open standards and workflows for the sake of the entire industry.
Trimble and Nemetschek plan to introduce the Trimble® Connect collaboration technology to incorporate workflows and make close connection amid selected Trimble solutions which rang\e from SketchUp, Tekla Structures, Vico Office, Trimble Prolog®, Trimble Field Link and MEPdesigner for SketchUp—and solutions in the Nemetschek portfolio, like Allplan, ArchiCAD, DDS, SCIA Engineering, Vectorworks and Nevaris.
Both companies prefer to employ the open standards and workflows—a highly recognized approach to the collaborative design, construction and operation of buildings. The functionality of Nemetschek Vectorworks is based on the Trimble Connect platform—a cloud-supported collaboration environment that offers an open environment for BIM-based AEC workflows—Trimble and Nemetschek are organizing their endeavors to denote the most successful technology for customers.
