Trimble continues to "Go BIM"
Yesterday, Trimble announced it's acquisition of VICO software. This is in addition to it's recent acquisitions of Tekla structures and Sketchup.
"Vico's 5D Virtual Construction software solutions pioneered the category of 5D BIM for construction. With Vico's capabilities Trimble is uniquely positioned to participate in the industry's evolution from 2D to 5D management," said Bryn Fosburgh, Trimble vice president. "Vico provides an important contribution in that evolution by connecting data from the virtual aspects to the physical aspects of a building construction project. It becomes the connection point that binds Trimble's hardware and software suite of products together across the DBO lifecycle."
My last post reflected the future of BIM - this merger will certainly have an interesting impact on that future.
What do you think this will do for the future of VDC?
