In addition, CSC's building design software complements Trimble Buildings' solution portfolio.
"The acquisition of CSC reinforces our goal of connecting key workflows across the design, build and operate continuum. It extends our offering to provide complete workflow solutions from design to rebar fabrication," said Risto Raty, general manager of the Trimble Buildings' Structures Division. "Together with CSC we are looking forward to providing an extended solution to our engineering clients. In addition, we are actively expanding our cooperation with other A&D software companies in different markets around the world."

"This offers an exciting opportunity for our products and our people to become part of a truly global business. Trimble will help CSC realize our ambitions far quicker than we could have done by organic growth."CSC will become part of the Trimble Buildings' Structures Division in the Engineering and Construction segment.
