Solibri Partnering with Graphisoft Australia

For Immediate Release

Sydney, Australia and Helsinki, Finland, May 7th, 2012

Graphisoft Australia and Solibri, Inc. have signed a partner agreement to serve the increasing need for BIM Quality Assurance and Model Checking in Australia

Solibri, Inc., the globally leading provider of rule based model checking and QA/QC automation solutions to the design and construction industries, today announced a partner agreement authorizing Graphisoft Australia to sell and market Solibri’s products in Australia.

“We are seeing clearly that OpenBIM use is rapidly spreading in Australia and therefore the timing is right for BIM based Quality Assurance on a large scale.  Placing greater emphasis  on the quality of the information served by the OpenBIM process, the entire industry is able to work more efficiently with high quality designs”, states Heikki Kulusjärvi, CEO and President of Solibri, Inc. “We warmly welcome Graphisoft Australia, a well-known advocate of OpenBIM,  to Solibri’s fast growing partner network” Mr. Kulusjärvi continues.

Mr. Max Piper, the CEO of Graphisoft Australia, states that “Graphisoft Australia has been instrumental in pushing  the adoption of OpenBIM by the Australian architectural industry for the last 20 years, and whilst a challenge for the industry, Graphisoft have been here to support and lead our clients with the implementation of OpenBIM”  The adoption of OpenBIM in the wider AEC industry is  gaining momentum, as model based collaboration brings real life fiscal benefits to the construction industry as a whole, at a time when project funding  and profit margins are extremely thin.

We are delighted to have Solibri Model Checker™ join ArchiCAD as leading OpenBIM collaboration & authoring tools.

Solibri will provide our customers with a best of breed model checking solution that allows them to be more competitive and increase their service offering.  Becoming a Solibri Partner is in line with our strategic plan of bringing best of breed OpenBIM applications to the Australian market to not only increase our offering to our existing customers but now broaden our reach into the  wider engineering & construction sectors of the AEC industry along with governemt and building owners. Solibri Model Checker™ offers a unique and indispensable solution for all stake holders."
