Scottsdale, AZ – August 13, 2014 - Solibri LLC, the organization responsible for building the Solibri presence in the Americas, has announced the establishment of a partnership with Viewpoint Construction Software. This relationship will deliver an end-to-end BIM workflow to the building and construction markets. This will include advanced quality assurance features ensuring validation and coordination of models during the preconstruction, construction and facility operations phases. Solibri Model Checker is well established as the leading technology for determining the quality of a BIM, for a wide range of use cases. When used in conjunction with Viewpoint For Project Collaboration, project teams will have a configurable Common Data Environment (CDE) that serves as the BIM workflow engine. This will make it possible for the entire project supply chain to ensure the right data is available for the right people, at the right time. In this environment, Solibri Model Checker adds a capability for the construction professional to achieve greater quality control of their CDE, resulting in improved cost management, delivery timing and maintenance work throughout the design, build and operations of their facilities. Viewpoint For Project Collaboration and Solibri Model Checker work with OpenBIM standards and this relationship further demonstrates that reliable and comprehensive workflows can be established to deliver consistent results from models, from a variety of BIM authoring tools. “Solibri recognizes that BIM continues to evolve as a process and effective company-wide and project adoption can require more than a single technology solution,” stated Jonathan Widney, President of Solibri LLC. “Solibri and Viewpoint bring award winning technology to customers looking to implement more complete and consistent solutions for model validation and collaboration. In Viewpoint we have partnered with a company that shares our vision and supports our commitment to ensure the delivery of real value to the industry.” “Viewpoint and Solibri’s solutions are naturally complementary and fulfill important elements of the workflows required for effective clash detection and BIM use by contractors,” stated Matthew Harris, Viewpoint senior vice president of strategy and corporate business development. “By partnering with Solibri LLC, we are able to provide US project teams a solution for both model validation/co-ordination and model collaboration.
