Viewpoint Construction Software and Solibri Partner to Bring Improved BIM Collaboration and Quality Control to North American Markets(August 13, 2014)
Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
Viewpoint Construction Software announced they have partnered with Solibri LLC, to offer the North American building and construction markets an end-to-end BIM solution that provides advanced quality assurance features which ensure the coordination and validation of drawings and models occurs during the preconstruction, construction and facilities management phases. Viewpoint For Project Collaboration affords project teams with a configurable Common Data Environment (CDE) that act 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. When used in conjunction with the Solibri solution, construction professionals are offered a greater quality of control in their CDE, seeing improved cost management, delivery timing and maintenance work throughout the design, build and maintenance of their spaces.
Both Viewpoint For Project Collaboration and Solibri solutions work with OpenBIM standards and their combination further demonstrates that reliable and comprehensive BIM workflows are being achieved using models from a variety of BIM authoring software.
Viewpoint and Solibris solutions are naturally complementary and fulfill important elements of the workflows required for effective clash detection and BIM use by contractors, stated Matthew Harris, Viewpoints senior vice president of strategy and corporate business development. By extending our partnership with Solibri from the UK to North America, we are able to provide North American project teams a solution for both model validation/co-ordination and model collaboration. In particular, the benefits achieved from this partnership offer 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 Jonathan Widney, President with Solibri LLC. Solibri and Viewpoint 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 Viewpoint we have found a partner that supports our beliefs and works to ensure the delivery of real value to the industry.
