Munich, February 12th 2014 - bim+, the open, web-based BIM platform for the building industry by the Nemetschek brand of the same name, launches and offers a cost-free BIM starter pack for architects, engineers and building managers.
BIM for starters
Effective communication and productive collaboration: It has never been easier to stay in sync with clients and colleagues. On site, in the office, or on the go: All building information can be accessed in one place. 3D models, 2D plans, photos, bills and everything else connected to building projects.
The free Team Edition simplifies the daily work of architects, engineers, building managers and house owners as well as their business partners and helps to avoid costly errors.
Multi-model collaborative features integrate building models of different software solutions and visualize them on a web browser or the iPad. bim+ uses the best technologies for the Internet, cloud, apps and mobile devices to help all participants in a building process build faster and better.
Today, the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) techniques plays a very important role across the various stages of building projects (planning, construction, building, use and management) and throughout the entire life cycle of a building.
“BIM is an essential prerequisite for efficiency in the building industry and will be decisive for winning projects in the near future. With the free Team Edition we enable small architecture and engineering firms to be a part of this promising future,” says Christian Ehl, CEO of Nemetschek bim+ GmbH.
Features for faster and better building
The Team Edition gives access to up to date building information to all participants in a building project, anytime and anywhere and let’s them find exactly the information they’re looking for. Open questions can be answered directly on-site and quick and informed decisions can be taken.
3-dimensional presentation possibilities simplify explaining and understanding projects and concepts via the iPad or the web. Interpretation errors with engineers, constructors and contractors are a thing of the past.
On-site observations or any kind of information can easily be added exactly where they belong. Keeping track of decisions and changes becomes very easy and printing plans unnecessary.
Including remarks, photos, priorities and due dates helps teams to discover and solve problems. Every project member is kept up to date and costly errors can be avoided. All this happens in real time and wherever people are at the moment. On-site problems can be recorded via mobile devices and monitored and solved by the team.
Conclusion: bim+ Team Edition helps individuals and teams to take sound and informed decisions and to build faster and better.
