Takenaka signs three year deal to use Rendra’s collaborative StreamBIM construction software
Japanese multi-disciplinary firm Takenaka Corporation has signed a three year deal with Norway-based Rendra AS (JDM Technology Group), to deploy its StreamBIM construction software across its enterprise.
StreamBIM allows users to view Building Information Models, 2D and 3D data across many different devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets.
Osaka-based Takenaka Corporation has deployed StreamBIM construction software on more than 60 projects and this agreement will empower Takenaka to further extend its digital construction expertise.
Based on the agreement, Rendra will establish an office in Japan and work alongside Takenaka’s R&D department and project delivery teams.
StreamBIM construction software collates BIM and project data (drawings and models) and makes it available realtime on any device. This means changes are processed and the data is always up to date. Models can be viewed and studied through the ability to set sections, measure and hide objects.
“We believe there will be innovations and synergies when we bring the leaders of Japanese project delivery and Scandinavian BIM knowhow together in our product,” said Ole Kristian Kvarsvik. “The Takenaka team is very well-informed regarding construction technology. We are humbled they have chosen Rendra as their partner.”
”Our site visits to Backe project Lindelia and the Vasakronan project Celsius showed us the value of deploying BIM on our construction projects,” said Hiroaki Yamasaki, Senior BIM manager at Takenaka. “With a collaborative BIM software, we will have a complete digital record of the building, which is much more valuable to us than paper documents and will improve our construction process substantially.”
