Nemetschek joins buildingSMART International's Strategic Advisory Council for better interoperability

Munich, July 9, 2014 - Nemetschek AG (ISIN 0006452907) announced today that, together with Autodesk, Trimble and HOK, it has joined buildingSMART International's start-up Strategic Advisory Council (SAC) as a founding member to foster better interoperability between stakeholders in the built environment industries.

The aim of the buildingSMART International-initiated Strategic Advisory Council is to gather a group of senior representatives from the world's leading international businesses operating in or serving the built environment. The intent is to merge the commercial experience of major industry stakeholders with buildingSMART's vision of a universal collaboration format for building models; enabling the efficient and quality exchange of information between the various software solutions.

Viktor Várkonyi, Member of the Executive Board of Nemetschek AG, said "The Nemetschek Group welcomes this strategic initiative. Nemetschek and buildingSMART share the goal of ensuring that open standards, such as IFC and BCF, become the undisputable standard for model-based collaboration in the AEC industry. Ultimately, we want to ensure that end-users can build their collaborative workflows based on the highest possible quality neutral data exchange. The guarantee for our success lies in the fact that all the Nemetschek Group Companies as well as Autodesk and Trimble are committed to this very same goal."

In addition to the data format standards, an equally important component of success is to further develop the market engagement for the deployment of such open standards. A closely-related, major role of SAC will be to advise buildingSMART International in its market evangelization activities. Nemetschek welcomes the immediate priority of buildingSMART to extend SAC membership to consultants, contractors, product manufacturers, operators and owners representing all major verticals of the AEC industry.
