a cross-Nordic operation
Project Services (PS) is the Business Unit in charge of delivering our cloud based BIM Data Management service BIMeye to the market. PS is a part of Addnode Design Management; one of the largest suppliers of business-critical support systems to engineering and construction operations in Northern Europe (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and the United Kingdom). With good knowledge about the customers’ processes, Design Management delivers IT solutions that reduce costs, shorten lead time and develop the most important processes.
The story behind BIMeye
In 2004 Cad-Q – now Symetri – decided to form a special task force in order to take on the challenge to introduce the new Building Information Modelling approach to the Nordic AEC market. This challenge was provided to us from Autodesk, who wanted a skilled partner and a place outside US to introduce and implement the BIM design tool Revit. This BIM-group was initially formed around Nina Borgström (BIM-process lead), Michael Thydell (BIM methodology expert) and Samir Balicevac (Revit API & BIM-process development expert).
In the beginning of 2006 the group obtained a major recognition in their effort to get the AEC market to understand and utilise benefits with BIM, when Myresjöhus decided to place their order regarding a brand new IT solution to support and enhance their operation with respect to the processes around sales, building permit, production, delivery and assembly at Cad-Q. This project gave some major insights in what way BIM-based technology, combined with good process thinking and clear goals, was able to achieve in terms of customer business value.
The experience from the project with Myresjöhus in 2009 lead to a contract with Bau-How, a company who invested heavily in industrial construction with an unusually flexible and large-scale building systems, and a project where we supported their processes with LEAN as a method, BIM as platform and REVIT as the technology.
Based on the these projects and some other equivalent experiences the group in 2010 was approached by the architecture “joint venture” firm WTT (WhiteTengbomTeam), who had been commissioned to design the very large new hospital New Karolinska Solna in Stockholm. The size (330 000 sqm, 12 floors and 11 000 rooms), complexity and the compressed schedule for this project forced WTT to take on a totally new way to work, where the solution was to combine Building Information Modelling design with a BIM Data Management approach. The very open minded and trustful development work process towards the WTT ICT board, under the lead of Marcus Bengtsson (BIM/IT Manager), was truly one of the success criteria’s in this project.
During 2012/2013 we started to get requests for information regarding an “external” business around our BIM Data Management experiences, repackaged under the new brand BIMeye, from people in other projects with knowledge of what we had delivered in the New Karolinska Solna project.
In 2014 we got an approval from Addnode regarding to take our experience and knowledge to the next level through a long-term and strategic investment in BIM Data Management with BIMeye as the platform. The investment in BIMeye will be our “bridge” between digital design and the final stages of maintaining the buildings in various FM solutions.
