Eurostep France Receives Contract from Bouygues TRAVAUX PUBLICS to Deliver Building Information Management (BIM) Proof Of Concept

The leading French company Bouygues Travaux Publics has awarded Eurostep a contract to deliver a Proof of Concept around collaboration in the Building and Construction industry. The Proof of Concept will focus on the design of a collaborative platform illustrating how end-users from different organizations, with different roles and tools could cooperate in the early design phases of a building lifecycle process. The project will demonstrate the value of collaboration in Building Information Management (BIM).

At the heart of this project is the idea that the collaborative techniques introduced by new information technologies will impact the building design process and that part of the experience gained in other industries, like aerospace and defense, could be transposed and adapted to the building industry.

Eurostep has vast experience in the domain of the extended enterprise in different industries such as aeronautics, defence and construction. Eurostep has contributed to large R&D European projects such as VIVACE (Value Improvement through a Virtual Aeronautical Collaborative Enterprise) and also delivered its commercial software into several production projects realizing PLM Collaboration in the Extended Enterprise. Eurostep has since many years been engaged in the building industry through its participation in the IFC modeling and implementation by providing support and tools to software vendors, to various European projects and to the management of the innovative SABLE work.

"This order is a clear indication that BIM is taken seriously by the leaders in the industry" says Håkan Kårdén, CEO Eurostep Group AB. "We are committed to standards development and to make this technology available through commercial software. This order by one of the leading companies is a confirmation that our strategy has delivered value", ends Mr. Kårdén.

Christian Giraud, Managing Director Eurostep France says: "We are proud to start a collaboration with Bouygues TRAVAUX PUBLICS. We are already seeing much success in Aerospace and Defence here in France since we started Eurostep SARL in 2007, and with this order we are in an even stronger position for the future", ends Mr. Giraud.
