“BIM is the opportunity to make traditional building processes much more efficient than before. The life cycle of data management allows better working performances in all levels from design until the demolition of a building. With centralized data structures, manufactures can handle the requirements of building processes easily and every time up-to date. Even the internal processes can be managed with less change management efforts, so we deeply believe, that BIM helps us perform better and better each day. The innovative solution of BIMobject fits our approach to be an international innovative company, which supports all our customers in the best way in daily work”, says Markus Hesse.
