For Immediate Release

Tokyo, Japan and Helsinki, Finland, August 13th, 2012

A&A Co., Ltd and Solibri, Inc. have signed a partner agreement to serve the increasing need for BIM Quality Assurance and Model Checking in Japan

Solibri, Inc., the leading provider of rule based model checking and QA/QC automation solutions to the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, today announced a partner agreement with A&A Co. Ltd. to market and sell Solibri’s products in Japan.

“It is clear that the OpenBIM concept is rapidly spreading in Japan. This is also a culture that places great emphasis on quality and continuous improvement. Therefore, we anticipate the practice of BIM- based Quality Assurance and Quality Control will become increasingly important in this market.  Establishing greater emphasis on the quality of the information available via the OpenBIM process, the AEC industry is able to work with much greater efficiency with higher quality designs”, states Heikki Kulusjärvi, CEO and President of Solibri, Inc.  “We therefore warmly welcome A&A Co., Ltd as our partner. With A&A, we have been exploring the localization of our product for Japan. With their knowledge and background of BIM solutions, A&A is a significant addition to Solibri’s rapidly expanding partner network.” Mr. Kulusjärvi continues.

Ms. Kazuko Uchida, the CEO of A&A Co., Ltd, states that
"I am very pleased to add Solibri Model Checker to our solution. Solibri Model Checker will be an important point in Open BIM: this model checker makes it possible to create an effective workflow, by integrating IFC files exported from other BIM tools and performing various checks. I believe that Solibri Model Checker will become the standard IFC model checker application in the Japanese architecture and construction industry. I would like that not only the many architectural designers who use Vectorworks, but all BIM tool users, will utilize Solibri Model Checker."
