CHICAGO, IL, June 10, 2020 – ENGworks announced a global services partnership with A2K Global, to bring its internationally recognized leadership in building information modeling (BIM) services and solutions to the architecture, engineering, construction and owner (AEC/O) community as well as building product manufacturers (BPM). This marks an evolution in the content and service delivery strategy for A2K as it seeks to leverage the RIB Global Alliance Network to bring a more comprehensive and scalable services offering to multinational BPMs and Owners. “This partnership strengthens A2K’s long-standing commitment to providing project-ready BIM content that conforms to international industry standards and expectations. ENGworks brings a proven track record of quality service and technology delivery that can be leveraged by our extended channel of Value Added Resellers (VARs),” said Matthew Sheales of A2K Technologies.
Building information modeling (BIM) continues to change the way the industry is designing and constructing commercial buildings. Detailed and accurate product information has become a critical input throughout the design-to-construction lifecycle and has become a challenge, especially for BPMs, to deliver consistent and quality data to all of their markets. BPMs must adapt their digital marketing strategy to deliver high quality BIM-ready content to serve the new tools and processes in design, fabrication, construction and ultimately facility and energy management.
ENGworks, in this strategic partnership with A2K, is building a Global Content Network focused on establishing much needed standards and quality guidelines for content creation, but also ensuring customers get the local service they need. BPM’s need to create a variety of CAD and BIM formats in support of the increasing pressure by owners for higher efficiency and performance throughout the entire design and construction lifecycle of a BIM project. “We see a need to provide content solutions for the AEC/O and BPM communities on an international level while supporting local project demands for languages, codes and standards. This can only be accomplished through a network of providers with knowledge of their specific construction market, working within a common framework of quality and consistency,” said Chris Di Iorio, CEO of ENGworks.
In its leadership role within RIB Global, A2K sees the creation of this global service delivery capability as core to enabling its VARs and Channel Partners the ability to enhance their service offerings and support multi-national customers with a network of capable providers. “We see a clear path to providing our customers and manufacturers the local project delivery they need with a scalable and adaptable service infrastructure to meet their international requirements,” said Matthew Sheales.
For three decades, ENGworks has been a technology leader continuously developing new processes and services to drive productivity for the AEC/O Community in their BIM and VDC workflows. The ENGworks mission is to help AEC/O professionals design and build better projects by reducing risks, saving cost, by combining cutting edge technology with their deep knowledge of the building lifecycle to create BIM technologies that impact construction productivity as well as building performance for Owners. Through its extensive expertise delivering technology and real-time building automation solutions with major players in Data Centers, Health Care, Hospitality and Government, ENGworks has become the technology and service provider of choice for the AEC/O and BPM community.
