Solibri was founded by a group of individuals who noticed the world was changing. In 1999, software modelling was improving and common standards were being formed. These standards allowed quality checking in different industries. The founders had experience from the worlds of construction, chemical and aerospace. As designers could now create with digital tools, it made sense to offer supporting software to check the validity and quality of these designs.
Construction was the natural industry to focus upon. The fundamental challenges of money and material waste could be solved with Solibri’s new ideas. From this thinking came out of the box software to check and analyze construction designs. Solibri Model Checker (SMC) X-rays Building Information Models – offering 3D visualization and walk in functionality to reveal potential clashes, flaws and weaknesses. You can also share that information within the construction team using SMC. The same software allows you to quantify the amounts of building materials needed and provides easier maintenance information once the building is ready.
Solibri now sells software in over 70 countries. It is part of the Nemetschek Group and based in Helsinki, with offices in the US and UK. Solibri continues to work with architects and construction companies to save time, money and the environment.
