Nemetschek Allplan boosts its BIM 5D competence with investment in construction software startup Sablono

18 Jul 2014

Munich-based software vendor Nemetschek Allplan, the High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and Hasso Plattner Ventures are all supporting Sablono, the main prize-winner of this year's IKT Gründerwettbewerb (an IT startup competition organized by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy). The startup company develops innovative software solutions for digital design, management and monitoring of construction projects.

With its participation, Nemetschek Allplan is increasing the competence of its BIM 3D solutions and its Design2Cost cost planning tool by adding the important fifth BIM dimension of model-based scheduling. This is because the Sablono portfolio includes "intelligent" BIM scheduling. Critical information on changes is provided to all project partners and digitally documented in real time. In this way, scheduled deadlines can be compared with the current actual data and the true progress of a construction project can be evaluated, monitored and managed in detail.

According to Dr. Jörg Rahmer, General Manager of Nemetschek Allplan "the ongoing solution for the three pillars of the construction industry 'quality – cost – time', is a mission to which Allplan has been dedicated since its foundation. With the development of 2D-modeling programs 30 years ago, quickly followed by 3D-modeling programs, Allplan made a revolutionary contribution to improving quality in the creation of architectural designs, anticipating the "age of BIM". Our "Design2Cost" product is a well-established solution for BIM4D – the cost planning dimension. With our support for Sablono, we are now improving our competence in the fifth BIM dimension – model-derived scheduling – further strengthening the three pillars of the construction industry".

"We are very pleased to have gained three strong partners in High-Tech Gründerfonds, Hasso Plattner Ventures and Nemetschek Allplan. We will work together on the tasks before us and we will all benefit from an exchange of experience, expertise and synergies", added Dr. Felix Enge, General Manager of Sablono GmbH.
