QUEBEC CITY, May 23, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Virtual Construction and Technologies BIM One Inc. ("BIM One") is proud to announce the signing of a substantial financial investment with WSP Global Inc. ("WSP"), one of the world's leading engineering firms. This agreement will enable BIM One to speed the worldwide development and marketing of its BIM Track® software solution, which is geared towards the architecture, design and construction industry.
BIM Track® is an innovative web-based technology designed to maximize interdisciplinary collaboration in the areas of digital 3D model construction and management. Incorporating various 3D coordination and modelling software applications, this solution aims to consolidate project information. This consolidation enables active participation of all involved in the BIM process, at both the design and construction stages, using any type of device (workstations, tablets or smartphones).
"BIM Track has undergone rapid growth over the past year and is currently used by thousands of people around the world. We are convinced that our partnership with WSP will enable us to further boost our growth," said Jimmy Plante, CEO of BIM One.
"We are proud to contribute to the success of a promising young company that already has international recognition. By bringing the benefits of our global network and expertise to BIM One, we will be playing a key role in fostering the development of innovative solutions for major projects. This ties in perfectly with our strategy of providing cutting-edge solutions to help solve the complex problems our clients are facing," said Robert Ouellette, WSP's Chief Corporate Services Officer.
In October 2016, BIM Track® was presented with the CanBIM Technology Award in recognition of its innovations and contributions to increased practice efficiency in the areas of engineering and construction. This award will enable the company to grow its workforce from 14 to 40 employees over the next 18 months and will support the development of its global platform and marketing program.
