Acquisition – Tekla acquires Field3D business from SVS Innovations
The acquisition further strengthens Tekla’s position in mobile BIM applications development.
Field3D is an easy-to-use 3D collaboration software solution for BIM that works on mobile devices, enabling stakeholders in a construction workflow to access complete 3D model information for an entire building on smartphones and tablets.
“One of Tekla’s key objectives is to extend BIM’s reach from the design office to the field, and Field3D technology will help us achieve this goal,” said Risto Räty, executive vice-president of Tekla Corporation and general manager of Trimble Buildings Structures Division.
Both Tekla and SVSi offer technology that smoothly manages large amounts of information. Tekla’s constructible, accurate models can represent some of the largest, most complex structures with detailed construction information, while Field3D can fluently manage 3D models on mobile devices regardless of their size. The solutions also share an open approach to BIM.
”Field3D is now part of a larger offering. This acquisition demonstrates the value of our mobile 3D platform, and now we can continue leveraging this innovative technology to other industries,” said Antti Nurminen, CEO of SVS Innovations.
