Networking in BIM projects
Tie up loose ends for Building owners, planners, executors, operators
Construction projects are highly complex. Many stakeholders need to work together on a common piece of work. Despite the onset of digitization, there are still endless media disruptions.
We support participants in the construction process by connecting the isolated data through custom software development. Where standard solutions stop, we start to tie up the loose ends to form a data network.
AIA, BAP, use cases?
The demands on planners and subsequent trades increase with the implementation of BIM. Specifications must be implemented. We use open standards wherever they exist and integrate them into your existing infrastructure. This enables you to create valid BIM models instead of chasing BCF tickets and working through defect lists.
Keep the overview
A not inconsiderable part of a model manager’s working time is spent updating and distributing the content to be used in a project. We work with you to develop strategies for in-house distribution, updating and localization, including project-specific ones.
BIM 2 FM?
All parties involved in construction contribute their data and their view of it to the BIM models. They contain a lot of information in a more or less structured form. When the building is to be transferred into operation, clean data communication is needed to bring the different model information into a CAFM system or SAP database.We are specialists in creating interfaces to formats such as CAFM-Connect to guarantee this data flow.
Benefit from BIM use cases
BIM promises to map the data and models in a way that everyone can understand. Even if we all need to work together more for the big picture, that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from individual use cases now.
We have already successfully automated processes for prefabrication in TGA and slotting and breakthrough planning. What use case do you have in mind? Where do you see potential for optimization?
Without standardization, BIM will not work! For this reason, we have been actively involved in committees and associations for more than 20 years to create the future for digital togetherness.

In addition, we share our knowledge in many presentations at congresses, trade fairs and other events so that we can take the next steps together.
Whether you want to automate processes, connect teams and workflows, or visualize your data, Forge APIs can help you realize these applications and more. Access your design and engineering data residing in BIM 360 or other solutions and enrich automated sub-processes.
With Speckle you gain a lot. The platform provides real-time stakeholder collaboration, versioning and automation, and meaningful data management. Speckle’s mission is to make data for construction open, accessible and editable, shaping a better digital future for the built environment. Speckle is an open source cloud-based solution for the AEC industry. We use Speckle for our platform leaDE, which is based on it in the backend. leaDE completely eliminates the need to defend against erroneous data: Instead of discovering the errors after they have occurred, none are made in the first place. Speckle bridges the gap between users and developers. Connectors are available for BIM software users, while developers can access the same data pool via APIs. Thus, this platform is perfect for bringing everyone together digitally in a cooperative way without any obstacles.
