US: Trimble has acquired the assets of MAYBIM based in Provo, Utah. MAYBIM is one of the leading 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) services providers with a focus on mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors across the US.
MAYBIM's suite of 3D BIM professional services allows for contractors to scale their BIM capabilities regardless of the requirements from the building owner or general contractor. MAYBIM provides contractors customised project deliverables that can include 3D modelling, BIM Coordination, 3D Laser Scanning and 3D modelling from scanned point clouds.
"Today's MEP contractors are increasingly receiving requests to use BIM on their projects, but the adoption and implementation takes time. The use of 3D BIM services to supplement their own capabilities can help MEP contractors accelerate that process," said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble's MEP Division. "By combining the experience of the MAYBIM and the Trimble MEP BIM services team, we are able to expand our skills and capacity to support our client base's BIM capabilities through the full workflow including field layout and 3D laser scanning."
