BIM software developer specialises in BIM software for infrastructure design across road, rail, sea and air
Trimble has acquired Vianova Systems AS, a Norwegian company specialising in BIM software for infrastructure design across road, rail, sea and air.
The company offers a portfolio of solutions for civil engineers, civil contractors and project owners, including specialist tools for road, rail, utility, site, bridge and tunnel civil design, advanced geotechnical analysis and model-based multi-user collaboration tools.
In addition, the tools include civil design project tracking, design model traceability and automated design change monitoring.
Trimble says the acquisition will extend its Connected Site portfolio, an information management solution that is designed to provide a high-level of process and workflow integration to optimise operations from the design phase through to the finished project
“The combination of Vianova Systems’ building information modelling capabilities and Trimble’s ability to drive constructability into workflows will optimize both site and project processes,” says Roz Buick, vice president of Trimble’s Civil Engineering and Construction Division. “With Vianova Systems, we can now deliver solutions for the owner, engineer and contractor to more closely collaborate on civil projects.”
