Global software institution GRAPHISOFT have announced a “large-scale” purchase agreement with Japanese architecture, engineering and construction firm Takenaka Corporation.

Takenaka’s thousands of field technicians will utilise GRAPHISOFT’s BIMx Docs as a result of the agreement, with the new software forming part of the Osaka-based initiative, Takenaka Smart Work, which is hoped will develop the company’s use of BIM.

According to, Takenaka Smart Work “will improve productivity and communications by revolutionizing workflows through the use of iPads and mobile devices”.

“We adopted BIMx Docs as a tool to facilitate communication with models, as well as for reviewing models in conjunction with drawing smoothly in a mobile environment,” said Kozo Nose, Senior Manager of ICT, Design Planning, Design Department at Takenaka Corporation. “We would like to promote the transformation of our work style by spreading the use of BIM models in various scenarios.”

GRAPHISOFT’s Vice President of Asia, Bence Kovacs also commented, saying: “Takenaka’s decision indicates that BIMx is on the way to becoming the mobile software of choice for the construction industry in Japan. We share a common vision: bringing BIM data to construction sites.”
