Solibri Launches Swedish Area Calculation Extension

Today Solibri launched a new extension for its Solibri Model Checker solution (SMC). The software complies with the Swedish Standards Institute 20154:2009 and empowers users to better organize large area spaces. By better maintaining spaces - time, money and manpower are all saved by Government and private sector companies. Solibri has over 10 years’ experience in providing area software for US’ General Services Administration (GSA) and Norway’s Statsbygg. The GSA alone is responsible for maintaining over 354 million square feet and over 9600 buildings. It was based upon this experience, that individuals of Swedish Regional Government approached Solibri and asked if they could provide a more improved process of Facility Management for public buildings. Per Erlandsson, CAD-strateg, Regionservice Skåne said “Within Sweden, current Facility Management requires the usage of approximately 5 separate software solutions operated by skilled individuals. Now by using SMC, only one software solution is needed. An area can be quickly calculated and classified, the IFC model quality checked and that information passed on within Facility Management. This is an immense improvement for tenant management control and maintaining spaces (e.g. when calculating areas for cleaning contracts). The benefits of saving time and money can then be passed back to the public taxpayer.” Schools, student & retirements homes, correctional facilities and general office spaces are some of the examples of areas that can be calculated. Solibri software allows you to manage the area space in several ways. You can measure the overall space, the usable space within the area and then pinpoint specific spaces (e.g. toilets) to make sure you have organized the plan properly (e.g. in a retirement home, are the toilets close enough to the rooms for the elderly patients?). Solibri welcomes all interested parties to contact them to find out how SMC can help with their area needs. About Solibri Solibri is the leader in BIM Quality Assurance and Quality Control.
