Hexagon expands BIM capabilities with iConstruct acquisition

Hexagon AB has announced the acquisition of iConstruct Pty Ltd, a provider of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software used in commercial, infrastructure and industrial construction.

Its flagship solution, iConstruct Pro, is a construction automation tool that enables integration, accessibility and control of the wealth of design and construction information held within different BIM models, combining all data into a single 3D model.

Hexagon President and CEO, Ola Rollén, said: “Hexagon has long been focused on creating smart digital realities that put data to work in new ways.

“By blurring the lines between the digital and physical worlds, we can offer customers a complete line of sight to ever-changing situations.

“Not only does iConstruct add an easy-to-deploy solution for combining different design models into a single source but it also enables the reading, writing and exchange of information all the way through operations and maintenance, passing the value of the single 3D model from design and construction to facilities management.”

“The addition of iConstruct’s offerings and expertise opens up immediate opportunities for our Asset Lifecycle Intelligence and Geosystems divisions.

“With iConstruct both can deliver greater data management, project planning and communication efficiencies to more customers, segments and disciplines involved in the construction process,” continued Rollén.

“In addition, iConstruct’s customer base will benefit from richer content and improved work processes when combining Hexagon’s industry-leading construction automation solutions with iConstruct’s tools.”
