3D Repo’s BIM collaboration platform to enhance Asite’s digital engineering solutions
Asite, a data platform for the built environment used by firms including Laing O’Rourke, and Transport for London (TfL), has acquired 3D Repo, a specialist in ‘real-time’ cloud-based BIM collaboration software for construction and infrastructure projects.
The acquisition builds on a relationship that dates back to 2020, when the two firms started working together to integrate their cloud-based collaboration platforms.
3D Repo is best known for its 3D visualisation, safety, and data validation tools. Multidisciplinary teams can communicate and access live BIM data directly through a web browser. Users can manage model revisions and highlight potential issues using live collaboration tools, which allow the whole project team to work from a single source of truth.
Asite’s project information management solution is more centred on the sharing of documents through traditional review, markup and revision tracking workflows. It also provides a range of solutions for supply chain management, and data management for assets. According to Asite, the addition of 3D Repo’s innovative technology will enhance and strengthen all of these capabilities further.
“We are delighted to welcome 3D Repo to the Asite family. This is a strategic move that aligns with our commitment to provide cutting-edge solutions for the construction industry,” said Nathan Doughty, Asite CEO. “Their innovative technology, combined with our existing solutions, will enable us to offer customers even more powerful and effective digital engineering tools. We are excited about the opportunities that this acquisition will bring.”
“Asite shares our vision for the future of digital engineering. We are excited to join forces and bring our expertise in cloud-based collaboration and BIM to Asite’s platform,” said Dr. Jozef Doboš, CEO of 3D Repo. “Together, we will provide a holistic information management platform that will provide customers with even more advanced solutions for managing their construction projects and help drive digitisation in construction to the next level.”
