Trimble Expands the Construction Modeling Capabilities to HVAC Market

Debamoy Ghosh

Trimble has announced that it is assisting the new construction modeling workflows with the grater integration between Bentley Systems' AECOsim Building Designer software and Trimble's Vulcan sheet metal cutting software for the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) market.

The new workflow integration permits design models to be shared at ease, save and securely and precisely in an exact manner. This very action extends the companies' ongoing partnership around “Construction Modeling” and boost up information mobility—which includes a target to influence Bentley i-models when Trimble and Bentley solutions are used together in project delivery.

Trimble is working with technologies to create field and mobile workers in businesses and government considerably more productive. Solutions are concentrated on applications requiring position or location—including surveying, agriculture fleet and asset management, public safety as well as mapping. It was founded in 1978; Trimble’s headquartered is situated in Sunnyvale, Calif.

Vulcan is a sheet metal cutting software solution for HVAC contractors, design/build firms and duct manufacturers, who rely on the software to boost shop productivity, decrees waste and improve their bottom lines. AECOsim Building Designer is Bentley's software for teams involved in the design, analysis, contracting, documentation and visualization of buildings.

The platform leverages i-models for the open exchange of project information so that team members may share and interrelate with complex project data and across product lines and technology platforms. By expanding Trimble and Bentley's existing i-model integrations to Vulcan, users can straightway send out design drawings to sheet metal fabrication, which can decrease errors and rework, and in the end save time and costs.

“Sheet metal cutting and fabrication require the utmost precision to ensure the finished product will meet design specifications exactly, but the design-to-fabrication gap is where errors are most likely to occur. Bentley's i-models ease data-sharing and improve accuracy so that our customers can feel confident that the fabricated product matches the design spot-on.” said Pat Bohle, general manager of the MEP Division within Trimble Buildings.

“Trimble and Bentley share the goal of improving productivity and accuracy across construction processes, so we're pleased that our collaboration continues to deliver significant and tangible benefits to the industry. We look forward to combining our efforts in supporting construction modeling workflows for all disciplines," said Harry Vitelli, Bentley Systems senior vice president, construction and field.

Availability: The brand new means will be fitted into Vulcan 2015 version 2, which is predictable to be available in the 2nd quarter of 2015 through Trimble Buildings' MEP Division. More information is available at:
