BRE and Graitec partnership
In August 2017, a partnership between BRE and software solution provider Graitec was announced, with the aim of providing companies with a smooth, end-to-end process for adopting BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification.
By joining forces, the two organisations suggests companies will benefit from a unified, all-inclusive service that supports them on their BIM journey from gap analysis with a pre-assessment service through to advisory, consultancy, software training and support, and BIM certification.
Graitec is an international innovative software developer operating in 30 offices across 12 countries. As one of the strongest international Autodesk Platinum Partners, the company is a Global Autodesk specialist partner for structural technologies.
“This focused, joined-up approach will make it far more efficient for companies to prepare for BIM Level 2 certification. It will also mean that Graitec clients can benefit from the BIM Level 2 process knowledge and training services provided by the BRE, but also have the software, consultancy and support services that we cannot offer.
"This will ensure that the advantages and opportunities that BIM certification delivers can be taken up faster and by a larger audience.”
Steve Houlder, Graitec COO, added:
“Our partnership with BRE will allow us to give companies a complete solution to BIM adoption. We are dedicated to help our customers excel and get ahead of their competition and this partnership gives us an additional approach to doing so.”
