Takenaka signs three-year enterprise agreement to utilize Rendra’s collaborative StreamBIM digital BIM construction software

“With a collaborative BIM software, we will have a complete digital record of the building, which is much more valuable to us than paper documents and will improve our construction process substantially.”

Rendra AS, a company within the JDM Technology Group, today announced a new three year enterprise agreement with Takenaka Corporation of Japan, which affirms and supports Rendra’s strategy of supplying its StreamBIM software to the global AEC industry.

StreamBIM enables users to view Building Information Models (BIM) on many devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets, and manage different document types including 2D drawings. StreamBIM helps facilitate communication and construction activities for the entire building cycle.

“We have been working with Takenaka for more than a year and our relationship has been a true pleasure,” said Ole Kristian Kvarsvik, Managing Director at Rendra. “When Takenaka wanted to extend its use of BIM during the construction stage, they looked for a proven BIM construction and collaboration product.”

To date Takenaka has deployed StreamBIM on more than 60 projects and this agreement will empower Takenaka to further extend its digital construction expertise.

“We believe there will be innovations and synergies when we bring the leaders of Japanese project delivery and Scandinavian BIM knowhow together in our product,” said Ole Kristian Kvarsvik. “The Takenaka team is very well-informed regarding construction technology. We are humbled they have chosen Rendra as their partner.”

”Our site visits to Backe project Lindelia and the Vasakronan project Celsius showed us the value of deploying BIM on our construction projects,” said Hiroaki Yamasaki, Senior BIM manager at Takenaka. “With a collaborative BIM software, we will have a complete digital record of the building, which is much more valuable to us than paper documents and will improve our construction process substantially.”

Rendra will establish an office in Japan and work alongside Takenaka’s progressive R&D department and professional project delivery teams.
