Solibri LLC and Microsol Resources Corporation Agree to Form a Strategic Relationship

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, September 8, 2008 – Solibri LLC announced today that it has appointed Microsol Resources Corporation, with offices in New York, NY and Philadelphia, PA as a Solibri Authorized Reseller
Partner.

Jonathan Widney, CEO of Solibri LLC (the US HQ of Solibri) stated, “The reason to partner with Microsol Resources is easy. They are highly regarded, extremely professional and committed to their customers. They are also uniquely positioned to help those customers gain a thorough understanding of BIM and they understand that this is a constantly evolving environment. The quality of the Microsol Resources organization is exceptional and Solibri is committed to working with only the best partner organizations.” Jason Dougherty, Director of BIM Implementation for Microsol Resources said, “The jump from geometrycentric clash detection to analytical clash detection is a monumental leap forward for the AEC industry. Utilizing your BIM to validate constructability or achieve code compliance for a design is the type of functionality the industry needs in order to keep up momentum and move beyond using BIM authoring tools simply to produce traditional 2D document sets. The Solibri Model Checker offers much more than a practical, easy to use tool that automates quality assurance and analysis of a BIM. It affords the community a concrete reality against which to re-evaluate project delivery methods and the idea of what constitutes an instrument of service in the 21st C. It’s both the tool and the promise of the tool that have got us so excited to partner with Solibri.”


Solibri Model Checker is the leading out-of-the-box software that automates the quality assurance and analysis of BIM models, including compliance with customer created guidelines and building code requirements. The Solibri products which include the Issue Locator, the Solbri Model Checker and the free of charge Solibri Model Viewer and Solibri IFC Optimizer are all based on international Industry Foundation Class (IFC) standards and file format. This enables the Solibri Model Checker to aggregate model files from any BIM Authoring Software applications which can export an .IFC file, then perform an almost infinite number of analytical ‘checks’ with respect to that model. The Solibri Model Checker is truly leading edge BIM technology, as these ‘checks’ will make use of the information (not just the geometry) from the model to determine if the design is acceptable, valid, constructable or code compliant. Solibri is delivering the “I” in BIM!
