iSqFt and Assemble Systems announced that they have agreed to a strategic partnership that will integrate their respective commercial construction solutions to allow for the sharing of Building Information Models. As BIM adoption continues to expand in the construction industry, this integration allows both companies to continue to be at the forefront of the market transformation.
iSqFt, a leading software-as-a-service company, serving the commercial construction industry, continues to enhance its offerings for customers through a strong technology platform focused on innovation. The strategic integration of iSqFt’s solutions with Assemble Systems provides unique project visibility for its network of more than 750,000 construction professionals and reaffirms the companies as leaders in the construction industry.
Assemble Systems’ easy-to-use, cloud-based model-data-management solution enables AEC firms to leverage BIM data for increased project insight, advanced project collaboration and data-driven decision-making. Users can easily access and condition object properties, identify visual variance and execute conceptual estimating, ultimately increasing productivity, efficiency and accuracy.
The integrated data-management platform allows general contractors to share a project’s BIM model with their subcontractors, along with 2-D plans and specifications, directly in the iSqFt interface. Also, general contractors can choose which components of the model they wish to share with subcontractors, based on building location and/or component. In the past, only a few subcontractors have had access to this type of technology in the bid stage, but through this exclusive partnership, BIM related information will be widely accessible. Additionally, the interface is intuitive and accessible for AEC professionals who may not have technical knowledge of expensive design tools.
