Global software behemoth Tekla have discussed their efforts in the Middle East, declaring that their solutions can help with the region’s “desire to be on par with global innovators in the construction field”.

In coverage over at ME Construction News, Tekla’s ME Area Business Director, Paul Wallett discussed how government BIM mandates and the 2022 Qatar World Cup are major motivator for pushing BIM boundaries in the region.

“Counting both ongoing and planned construction projects, the GCC’s construction pipeline totals $2.8 trillion, especially in mixed-use mega-developments, airports and seaports, and transportation infrastructure,” explained Paul. “In anticipation of this growth, architects, engineers, contractors, and real estate companies are posting strong demand for BIM software.

“Advancing government BIM mandates further demonstrate the Middle East’s desire to be on par with global innovators in the construction field.

“Further integrating with Trimble in 2016 will help bring us closer to our customers in the Middle East. From BIM to holographic technology to real estate management software, we’ll deliver best practices in technology to help the Middle East’s architecture, engineering, and construction firms deliver on innovation agendas.”
