SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today it has acquired the assets of privately-held MAYBIM based in Provo, Utah. MAYBIM is a leader in providing 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) services to contractors with a focus on mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors across the U.S. Financial terms were not disclosed.
MAYBIM's suite of 3D BIM professional services allows for contractors to rapidly scale their BIM capabilities regardless of the requirements from the building owner or general contractor. MAYBIM provides contractors customized project deliverables that can include 3D Modeling, BIM Coordination, 3D Laser Scanning and 3D Modeling from Scanned Point Clouds.
"Today's MEP contractors are increasingly receiving requests to use BIM on their projects, but the adoption and implementation takes time. The use of 3D BIM services to supplement their own capabilities can help MEP contractors accelerate that process," said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble's MEP Division. "By combining the experience of the MAYBIM and the Trimble MEP BIM services team, we are able to expand our skills and capacity to support our client base's BIM capabilities through the full workflow including field layout and 3D laser scanning."
"Helping contractors implement and expand their BIM capabilities is one of our core values," said Ben May, founder of MAYBIM. "We're excited to join our 19 years of BIM experience with Trimble, a leader in BIM and 3D modeling tool development."
