Graphisoft SA Announces Worlds First Market Designed ARCHICAD BIM Licence Offering

ARCHICAD BIM solution for All. Graphisoft SA is proud to announce it’s first market designed ARCHICAD offering supporting the business environment present in South Africa. This unique BIM licence offering is a worldwide first affording architects, interior designers, landscape architects and town planners an easier way to adopt BIM workflow without a big upfront investment profile.

With this new cost effective introduction, Graphisoft is, yet again, showing commitment to supporting the South African design industry with this unique market offering that provides support for business to scale and maneuver the market based workload.

“This is an important step in building a strong footprint across South Africa to support the roll-out of solutions which can help local businesses compete on a global scale” comments Dean Naidoo, Graphisoft SA Business Manager. “Although ARCHICAD is a direct service between an end-user and Graphisoft SA, we see huge potential businesses to add layers of value and services on top of BIM offering, which in many markets are a legal requirement.”

Building Information Modelling

A current innovation that is transforming the engineering industry is building information modelling (BIM), originally a collaborative digital process used to design buildings using a coherent system of computer models rather than separate sets of drawings.

Today, BIM is fast becoming the international standard for the design, construction and operation of buildings, roads and rail, utilities, process plants, oil platforms, ships, factories and mines, amongst others.

“Furthering the growth of BIM and making it easily accessible is at the core of what we do,” Naidoo continues “We listen to our clients and are proud to be able to offer this new flexible service as a first worldwide. We understand that clients are requiring more versatility and we have listened to this feedback. We care about the market and want to be a part of enabling local architects achieving more success and it is vital for us to show loyalty to them as they do to us”.

One of Graphisoft’s biggest success stories has been the recent conversion on to the ARCHICAD BIM solution of the world’s most successful architectural company Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) in Copenhagen Denmark.

This shows that the solution is on the forefront of innovation which is needed for South African Architectural companies to make an overwhelming presentation when entering the highly competitive international markets.
