Good construction software having advanced features can facilitate the coordination and validation of drawings and models required in the preconstruction, construction, and facilities management stages.
Recently, two leading technology providers are amalgamated to provide a streamlined BIM (building information modeling) solution.
Viewpoint Construction Software, www.viewpointcs.com, located at Portland, Ore., has tied a knot with Solibri LLC, www.solibri.com, located at Helsinki, Finland, to put forward an end-to-end BIM solution toward the North American building and construction industries.
Viewpoint For Project Collaboration consists of a configurable CDE (Common Data Environment) that works as the BIM workflow engine and it facilitates the total project supply chain for having the proper BIM data to the exact people at the right time. If CDE is applied together with the Solibri solution, construction professionals can manage their CDE in a better way with improved cost management, delivery timing, and maintenance work during the design, build, and maintenance of their spaces.
Both Viewpoint For Project Collaboration and Solibri solutions manage OpenBIM standards. With this joint venture, it ensures the application of trustworthy and all-inclusive BIM workflows through models from diversified BIM authoring software.
This amalgamation allows the contractors to get the vital elements concerning the workflows necessary for effective clash detection and BIM application.
AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) firms will reap the benefits out of the suppleness of open standards-based platforms, which save time, money, and resources.
