Architecture, engineering and construction consultants Sweco have announced the acquisition of a major player in Norway‘s Building Information Modelling scene.

The sustainable solutions Swedish firm’s Norwegian wing have acquired the BIM consultancy (aptly named) BIM Consult, with the deal coming into effect two days ago (November 1st).

Sweco purchased BIM Consult, the Norwegian market’s leading BIM figure, in the hope that their team can branch out into new areas of construction relating to more modern processes and tools such as BIM.

Frøydis Espedal, Sweco’s Regional Manager for Construction, Industrial and Property in Oslo, stated that BIM Consult are “at the forefront of innovation and development of BIM as a process” whilst BIM Consult’s higher ranks described the merging of the two companies as “exciting”.

“We have increased our capacity by being integrated into one of the largest advisory groups. This will give our employees challenges by participating in multidisciplinary projects in a large company,” said BIM Consult’s CEO Øyvind Kjøllesdal.

“Sweco will give our customers greater competence, while it will be fun to also be involved in the further development of Sweco’s internal BIM strategies.”

An image was also released of the two companies’ management staff happily embracing the deal and looking forward to their new combined working environment. The image is displayed below.
