Helsinki/Leeds, May 16, 2016 – Solibri announces Andrew Bellerby as the new Managing Director for its UK operations. With strong growth and an increasing demand for QA/QC, Solibri is investing new key resources in the European marketplace. As part of that plan, Andrew will focus on building a successful organization to serve the need for quality in the UK construction industry. This new organization will be based in Leeds.
Andrew comes with considerable experience of supplying BIM solutions into the UK market with more than 25 years in various roles with AceCAD in the UK and overseas and then latterly as Managing Director with Tekla. His knowledge of the UK and global markets gained over the years will prove invaluable as we establish a new office and build on a strong and well respected team.
“Having seen the UK market continue to adopt digital engineering practices and BIM starts to become the norm, I am thrilled and excited by the opportunity to establish Solibri as the mark of quality control in the UK market and to help shape the construction industry of tomorrow. As BIM adoption grows the need for quality data and quality models is becoming paramount, without those assurances in place the promise of BIM will not be delivered. My goal is to bring that guarantee of quality to the construction industry with Solibri as the defacto standard”.
Interoperability and collaboration have become crucial to the successful delivery of large scale construction projects. Solibri wishes to offer the best possible tools and resources to help the journey of those companies looking to adopt BIM in their everyday workflow. As part of the Nemetschek Group, Solibri supports the strategy of driving digitization across the entire lifecycle of the industry.
Solibri will continue to support buildingSMART and the official development of BIM standards within the UK.
