Sunderland, UK (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
4Projects, a Viewpoint Construction Software Company, announced they have partnered with Solibri UK, part of a Finnish-based software company providing BIM model validation, QA and interrogation software, to provide the UK building and construction markets an end-to-end BIM solution that enables validation and co-ordination of models with a scalable model collaboration infrastructure. Both 4Projects and Solibri solutions work with open BIM standards and their combination further demonstrates that reliable and comprehensive BIM workflows are being achieved using models from a variety of BIM authoring software.
“4Project’s and Solibri’s solutions are naturally complementary and fulfill important elements of the workflows required for effective BIM use by contractors,” stated Matthew Harris, senior vice president of strategy and corporate business development. “The 4Projects collaboration solution provides project teams with a configurable Common Data Environment (CDE) that acts as the BIM workflow engine, enabling the entire project supply chain to ensure that the right BIM data is made available to the right people at the right time. By partnering with Solibri UK, we are able to provide project teams with a solution for both model validation/co-ordination and model collaboration. In particular, the benefits achieved from this partnership provide another quintessential example of how open standards based BIM applications enable solution providers to collaboratively bring to market complete BIM software offerings for the building and construction industries.”
“Solibri recognizes that effective adoption of BIM requires more than just a single solution,” stated David Jellings, managing director of Solibri UK. “Solibri and 4Projects bring award winning products to customers looking to implement more complete BIM solutions for model validation and collaboration. With our solutions, AEC users can benefit from the flexibility of open standards based platforms which save time, money and resources. In working with 4Projects we have found a partner that supports our beliefs and works to ensure the delivery of real value to the industry.”
