GRAPHISOFT sponsors the inaugural BIM Summit Africa

Date: Wednesday, August 29, 2012

As a BIM industry leader globally and a BIM technology supplier in Southern Africa since 1999, GRAPHISOFT have taken the opportunity to sponsor the INAUGURAL BIM SUMMIT AFRICA, as a continuation of it's BIM technology supply strategy in the region. The 4 day event has been well supported by management delegates from across the building industry, ranging from design professionals, to contractors and property owners. BIM technology solutions have been introduced by several speakers and a wide range of discussions have been heard as a result. For details of the summit, the topics covered and the speakers credentials and expertise, visit the BIM Summit Africa event website here. As Gold Sponsor, GRAPHISOFT have taken this opportunity to introduce the local construction industry, to the concept of Open BIM, which in it's philosophy, suggests that each discipline within the entire building life cycle, from conceptualisation through to full operational facilities management, should use the best BIM solution available for their respective disciplines, with no restriction in data sharing or choice of software usage. GRAPHISOFT have introduced the following Open BIM software solutions (all below software are full BIM solutions, with open integration to other BIM solutions):
