NEW YORK and SAO PAULO, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MBM Engenharia, a leading multi-disciplinary engineering firm based in Sao Paulo, and Ziggurat, a provider of 3D coordination and space management technology, have partnered to bring 3D modeling, coordination and clash detection capabilities to more than 1,000 MBM Engenharia customers throughout Brazil and Latin America.

The partnership gives design and construction professionals in the region the ability to implement 3D modeling, coordination and clash detection on any project with Ziggurat B4UB™ without requiring project participants to change their work habits. Project participants can collaborate and quickly diagnose and resolve issues related to their design by viewing and analyzing their system designs in 2D and 3D environments side-by-side on the Ziggurat Viewer. The result is a faster and more reliable design-to-build process.

The new offering is now available to MBM Engenharia's existing customers as well as other projects. The solution is offered as professional service, eliminating the need for an expensive capital expenditures, long learning curve and costly implementation process.

"When I first saw Ziggurat B4UB solution I immediately knew it can add real tangible benefits to our projects and the choice of MBM Engenharia as the local service provider for these services is an excellent choice; they know the market and are known for their superb quality of services and professionalism," said Henrique de Melo Paixao, Director for Sao Paulo-based Odebrecht.
