AEC Daily and BIMWorld Announce Strategic Alliance
BIMWorld and AEC Daily jointly announced their strategic relationship at Construct 2008 in Las Vegas.
AEC Daily is adding the BIMWorld's services to its inventory of marketing services for the building product manufacturers. Through the BIMWorld technology, they will be able to ensure their products are specified from design through construction and beyond.
The Building Information Model (BIM) is a set of information generated and maintained throughout the life cycle of a building. BIM covers geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, quantities and properties of building components.
As a result of the relationship, AEC Daily's course library will also be integrated into Autodesk Seek - a groundbreaking web service that allows architects, engineers and designers to search, select and specify building products using Autodesk's advanced search technology.
"Building Information Modeling is here now and represents the future of A.E.C. design. An estimated 1,000,000 projects are currently using BIM" said Jeff Rice, President of AEC Daily. "In addition, BIMWorld's connection to Autodesk will allow us to offer our wide selection of outstanding courses to Autocad users - and as always, for free!"
AEC Daily currently has over 210 courses that are recognized or approved by 17 different organizations and several new courses are added monthly. Each one meets or exceeds the educational requirement for most construction professionals in North America.
