New Trimble Buildings Group Unites Best-in-Class Construction Technology Portfolios To Improve Design-Build-Operate Lifecycle For Vertical Construction

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has formed Trimble Buildings, a newly formed group within Trimble's Engineering and Construction segment. The new group will leverage the Trimble Design-Build-Operate (DBO) platform of organic and acquired technologies to develop and bring to market a new portfolio of synergistic technologies for capital construction owners and Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) service providers. Trimble Buildings will provide the organizational infrastructure to fuel innovation and allow current and future customers to take advantage of the rapidly evolving technology landscape to maximize overall business value.

The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.

Industry globalization, an increasingly mobile workforce, and a need for greater collaboration throughout the construction supply chain are changing the construction landscape. Design and construction professionals are increasingly engaged in multiple, complex projects simultaneously, often spanning industries, regions and cultures. The new group brings together teams of industry experts and deep industry knowledge with a wide variety of proven hardware and software technologies to provide a comprehensive set of solutions focused on delivering virtual design and construction from the office to the field and back. Trimble Buildings will address the core markets of Building Owners, Architects, General Contractors, Structures, and Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), bringing together deep domain-driven solutions on a common DBO platform.

"Bringing these purpose-built technologies into one group means our focus can be entirely on the end result: what is best for our customers," said Bryn Fosburgh, Trimble vice president. "We are in the midst of a convergence of technologies that we believe will bring the next level of innovation to the capital building construction market. By combining back office software with field productivity devices to offer capabilities tailored to specific disciplines and logical synergies across the supply chain, the new Trimble Buildings group will provide our customers and partners with the broadest and most sophisticated capabilities available today."

Trimble Buildings will initially combine technology from Trimble's former Building Construction Division with Accubid, Meridian Systems, Plancal, QuickPen, SketchUp, Tekla, Vico Software and WinEst.
