Allplan wins Digital Building Transition Award for its BIM platform bim+ in France

  • Jury was convinced by the openBIM approach of bim+, which enables fully integrated, interdisciplinary collaboration

Munich, December 5, 2016 - Allplan has won the Digital Building Transition Award in the “collaborative or content sharing tools“ category for its bim+ BIM platform. The prize was awarded to BIM experts and providers of software solutions for architects, engineers and facility managers at the first annual Digital Building Transition Awards held in Paris, France, on November 29.

The jury was convinced by Allplan’s openBIM approach, which ensures collaboration between all participants in a BIM project in real time. Allplan’s openBIM approach enables all those involved to share documents, templates and attributes in a single, secure environment, according to the experts. Further nominees in the “collaborative or content sharing tools“ category included Autodesk’s A 360 and Gespro’s BIMPRO as well as Edifycad.

“We are very pleased to receive this award by the French Government“, says Michael Koid, managing director of Allplan GmbH. “With the help of bim+, models and data from a wide variety of systems can be managed centrally, making coordination across offices, disciplines and software boundaries much easier than ever.“

About the award

Established by the Government of France, the Digital Transition Plan for Buildings (PTNB) awards recognize software innovations that help building design and construction professionals’ transition to and work within a BIM workflow. The objective of the awards is to highlight the digital tools that allow all building professionals to work on digital models using BIM. 30 of 93 entries were nominated. The jury then selected 11 winners in 10 categories. Most of the participating software programs will be listed on the French Government’s PTNB website as a guide for design and construction professionals to consider the best BIM software tools available on the market.

In addition to bim+, three other Nemetschek brands won the Digital Building Transition Award: Graphisoft’s Archicad 20, Scia’s Scia Engineer and Solibri’s Solibri Model Checker.
