GRAPHISOFT RECEIVES TOP INDUSTRY AWARD FOR HOTTEST COMPANY
Constructech Recognizes Graphisoft for Innovation in Commercial Construction with 5D Virtual Construction Solution
Newton, Mass. - July 6, 2006 - Graphisoft™, a global leader in Virtual Building™ solutions, is a recipient of the 2006 Constructech Hottest Company Award in the commercial sector. This award recognizes Graphisoft's Virtual Construction™ solution as the first commercially available application to integrate all the core processes required to successfully deliver construction projects to completion. By linking design, estimating, scheduling, procurement, and site management, Graphisoft's solutions help reduce the cost of building projects and identify constructability issues during the design and preconstruction phases.
Constructech Commercial magazine editors selected companies that are creating the best new technologies for the construction marketplace. The award highlights those companies that have developed innovative solutions, while demonstrating leadership in the industry through impressive company growth and significant client wins. "Graphisoft's software and services are revolutionizing the way construction professionals deliver projects," stated Dominic Gallello, CEO, Graphisoft. "Our customers throughout the world are delivering major projects faster and with less cost. Owners, contractors, and subcontractors have benefited tremendously from this new approach to planning and managing the construction process."
Graphisoft's Virtual Construction solution transforms the entire construction process, from preconstruction planning and estimating to work performed on site. The solution suite of technologies employs 3D modeling to virtually construct the project, which is associated with schedule (4D) and cost (5D) to provide accurate estimating quantities and to analyze alternative construction sequences. The Virtual Construction solution allows entire construction teams to be informed of the cost and scheduling of a project by automatically updating the entire process, ultimately keeping projects on time and on budget.
