Nemetschek Scia announced a new partnership with Applied Technology Group, headquartered in Kuala-Lumpur.
BRUSSELS, Belgium, Jan 9, 2014 - Nemetschek Scia, the world’s premier developer of structural engineering software that supports the BIM process, announced a new partnership with Applied Technology Group in Kuala-Lumpur.
Applied Technology Group (ATG) is setting up a competence center for Nemetschek Scia on Eurocodes and on BIM. Structural engineers from the region around Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, …) will be trained to improve their 3D workflows by adopting BIM; also since the region is moving from British standards towards Eurocodes, expert trainings will be set up to support this move.
Two major trends are transforming the structural practice in S.E. Asia, namely the rapid adoption of the Eurocodes in several countries, and the migration to building information modeling (BIM). By partnering, Nemetschek Scia and Applied Technology Group will offer both best-in-class BIM software that supports the Eurocodes, as well as high quality training, support and project consultancy.
In Malaysia and Singapore the authorities and technical experts are developing local annexes to the Eurocodes for the various materials (steel, concrete, composite, etc) and loadings (e.g. seismicity) in order to facilitate the introduction of these powerful codes in accordance with regional practice. Also important project developers are setting up BIM implementation teams to improve their processes from design to execution of a variety of building projects.
“The Scia offer is coming right on time to help our professionals making the transition to the Eurocodes and to Building Information Modeling. We are excited to join forces with Nemetschek Scia to offer a software solution with a mature support for both BIM and the latest Eurocodes” says Ir Tu Yong Eng, technical director and partner at ATG. Mrs Tan Seok Hien, operations director and partner at ATG adds “we have carefully evaluated the needs in the construction industry to find that new technologies require in depth training and support which we will set up in KL and at other locations of ATG”.
“We are pleased to welcome Applied Technology Group as our new partner in S.E. Asia. With their strong expertise in training professionals in the construction industry, they are a perfect partner to introduce Nemetschek Scia technologies and to deliver quality services which sofware users are expecting” expresses dr. Jean-Pierre Rammant, CEO of Nemetschek Scia.
