The Bricsys® BIM team is very happy to welcome McConnell Dowell Singapore to the Bricsys BIM Alliance Program. The McConnell Dowell Singapore team have been enthusiastic users of BricsCAD for several years. When the opportunity came to move to a BIM workflow, the team wanted to be more than just users of their BIM software. After meeting with Bricsys, they decided that the Alliance Program would satisfy their desire to be an active participant in the development of their desired BIM workflow.

The MCD Singapore team joined the BIM Alliance, which offered them the opportunity to contribute to the development of the BricsCAD BIM workflow and feature set. The team was especially excited about the fact that BricsCAD BIM supports both 2D and 3D on a single platform. They also referenced BricsCAD BIM’s strong 3D conceptual modeling tools, and the collaboration functionality built into Bricsys 24/7 as reasons for their attraction to the Bricsys offering.

The product management team for BricsCAD BIM is quite excited to engage with the MCD Singapore team to better understand best-practices workflows for tendering and 5D construction visualization. These are two key areas of interest to the MCD Singapore team, and also a place where both teams agree that rapid development progress can quickly lead to cost savings.

“Together, McConnell Dowell Singapore and Bricsys will work not only to improve the generation of building information models, but also the safe and secure democratization of these data.”

We’re confident that you’ll be interested in the outcome of our collaboration. We’ll begin bringing these workflows and tools to our commercial products starting in the next major release of BricsCAD BIM, later this fall.
