Skanska UK has announced a strategic partnership with BIMobject®, which is a significant step forward in its building information modelling (BIM) strategy. Skanska's award-winning approach to BIM has been recognised throughout the construction industry. The partnership will enable more collaborative working between Skanska and its supply chain.
BIMobject® creates and publishes digital replicas - BIM objects - of manufactured products, which include all the associated data required for the construction process. These can then be placed into a virtual version of a project that is developed using BIM processes and software.
With its range of market leading innovative technologies, including an on-line object generator designed for use by the supply chain, BIMobject® is strongly placed to support both Skanska and its supply chain partners. This market leading initiative further advances the use of technology in transforming construction.
"This agreement helps us to further strengthen our position as a leader in BIM in the industry. It also demonstrates the importance we place on working collaboratively with our supply chain and other partners. BIMobject® is a key component of our overall strategy to achieve this." said, Malcolm Stagg, Head of BIM at Skanska UK.
"This initiative is another important step in moving towards fully collaborative processes with BIM. We are delighted to be able to contribute to making these processes work smoothly for Skanska and its supply chain", commented Alan Baikie, Managing Director of BIMobject® UK.
Skanska is one of the world's leading project development and construction groups, concentrated on selected home markets in the Nordic region, other European countries and in the Americas. With a focus on green construction, ethics, occupational health and safety, Skanska offers competitive solutions - not least for the most complex assignments.
BIMobject® is a game changer for the construction industry worldwide with its cloud based Portal offering development, maintenance and syndication of digital replicas - BIM objects - of manufactured building and interior products.
