Trimble and VolkerWessels, a leading construction firm and global player in the field of information and communications technologies, announced a strategic relationship to standardize VolkerWessels’ projects on a key set of Trimble construction technologies. The collaboration is designed to leverage each company’s core capabilities to advance innovations in Building Information Management (BIM) technology and improve the management and predictability of building construction and real estate projects.
As part of the collaboration, Trimble will closely work with VolkerWessels’ stakeholders to gather real-world feedback for continued innovation in BIM-centric construction. In addition to the purchase of Trimble construction technologies, the collaboration also includes professional and integration services performed by Trimble and Construsoft, a Trimble integrator based in the Netherlands.
“Trimble excels at putting construction data to work,” said Marinus den Harder, director of construction and real estate development at VolkerWessels. “Trimble’s data-centric approach to BIM provides us with analytics and business intelligence that we can use to extend our competitive advantage.”
Trimble provides a broad range of technologies for civil and building construction management. With a full range of tools and construction-ready modeling to manage construction activities and team collaboration, Trimble solutions enable customers to improve productivity and achieve operational excellence. Using Trimble Connect™ software as a central collaboration platform, plus Trimble ProjectSight™ for construction management, VolkerWessels will further streamline the sharing of construction models, data and project information between key project stakeholders.
“Our close collaboration with VolkerWessels enables both companies to innovate while driving greater value in the design, build and operate phases of construction,” said Roz Buick, vice president at Trimble. “We greatly value this key customer relationship enabling us both to seek insights for buildings, infrastructure and real estate industries.”
