Trimble Introduces Trimble Field Points Software For Building Construction Projects

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) introduced today the new Trimble® Field Points software for construction field layout. The application enables contractors to create layout points in their computer-aided design (CAD) models. Trimble Field Points helps field crews to increase productivity by quickly and accurately matching the digital design on the physical construction site. This in turn can minimize errors compared with manual process and result in more accurate installation of systems and equipment in field layout work.

The announcement was made today at International Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigerating (AHR) Expo in New York and at World of Concrete in Las Vegas.   

Trimble Field Points was designed for building construction contractors or engineers who want to easily create field points within their CAD or building information modeling (BIM) files. Trimble Field Points provides fluid creation of field points for most construction applications including anchor bolt locations, curtain wall attachments and hanger or sleeve locations via simple, intuitive point creation workflows. Users can import field point data into the Trimble Field Points software, while staying within their preferred design platform, to assist with their QA/QC workflows for comparison in the model.

"As the industry continues to push the utilization of BIM practices for cost savings and project data collaboration, connecting the digital model to the field is a crucial piece of this process," said Pat Bohle, general manager of the MEP Division within the Trimble Buildings Group. "Trimble Field Points provides a cost effective tool for contractors and those involved in the building construction process, while eliminating the need for extra steps through its integration with a variety of BIM tools."

Adding further value, data from Trimble Field Points also integrates directly with Trimble Field Link construction layout software. When the two products are connected to Trimble Robotic Total Stations, they provide a best-in-class building construction positioning system, enabling users to easily lay out their construction projects with task-based, metric-rich workflows. 


Trimble Field Points is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2014 through Trimble's Authorized Distributors of layout solutions from Trimble Buildings' MEP and General Contractor / Construction Manager Divisions.
