VolkerWessels and Trimble working together to drive BIM innovation
Trimble and VolkerWessels, a leading construction firm and global player in the field of information and communications technologies, announced today a strategic relationship to standardize VolkerWessels' projects on a key set of Trimble construction technologies. The collaboration is designed to leverage each company's core capabilities to advance innovations in Building Information Management (BIM) technology and improve the management and predictability of building construction and real estate projects. As a local partner of Trimble Buildings software, Construsoft will provide support for implementation and integration with existing systems.
Added value BIM
As part of the collaboration, Trimble will closely work with VolkerWessels' stakeholders to gather real-world feedback for continued innovation in BIM-centric construction. "Trimble excels at putting construction data to work," said Marinus den Harder, director of construction and real estate development at VolkerWessels. "Trimble's data-centric approach to BIM provides us with analytics and business intelligence that we can use to extend our competitive advantage."
"Our close collaboration with VolkerWessels enables both companies to innovate while driving greater value in the design, build and operate phases of construction," said Roz Buick, vice president at Trimble. "We greatly value this key customer relationship enabling us both to seek insights for buildings, infrastructure and real estate industries."
VolkerWessels’ headquarters is located in the Netherlands and as a reseller of Trimble Buildings software and local partner in the Benelux, Construsoft supplies software and support to VolkerWessels. In addition to several software already in use, e.g. Tekla Structures™, Vico Office™ and SketchUp Pro™, VolkerWessels has now also chosen for Trimble Connect™ as a central collaboration platform and Trimble ProjectSight™ for construction management. Construsoft will, together with Trimble, support VolkerWessels with the implementation and integration of these new, innovative software with their existing systems.
Trimble Connect™ is a platform for designers, builders, owners and operators that work together on BIM projects, from the design until the completion. The cloud platform for project collaboration connects different kinds of disciplines in the building process to each other and streamlines the project communication. Access to a BIM and all its relevant information is easily possible via computer, web, tablet or smartphone and via the Microsoft HoloLens™ at any time. For more information visit connect.trimble.com.
