Bricsys, part of Hexagon, announces that BricsCAD AX3000 MEP Suite has been admitted to the Construction Innovation and Technology Fund’s (CITF) Pre-approved BIM Software List
Eligible applicants in Hong Kong’s construction industry will now benefit from government-subsidized discounts on BricsCAD AX3000 MEP Suite through the Construction & Innovation Technology Fund (CITF).
The BIM solution leverages specialised AX3000 modules that interact seamlessly with each other and BricsCAD to cover all aspects of building services engineering: ventilation, heating, sanitation, electrical, residential ventilation and fire safety and sprinkler systems.
BricsCAD and AX3000 MEP are built on a familiar DWG file format which enables engineers to bring their 2D CAD drawings into the platform. It is also based on an openBIM architecture, accelerates time to value and reduces hours lost to training.
All IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) data created in BricsCAD is fully certified to openBIM industry standards and can be shared across different software platforms.
‘Construction industry continues to digitize’
Pat Williams, vice-president of sales, APAC at Bricsys comments: “We are delighted that eligible users across Hong Kong will enjoy access to this market-leading solution at a reduced price through the CITF.
“We believe the admission of our solution to the CITF Pre-approved BIM Software List is an endorsement of the powerful combination that AX3000 and BricsCAD represents as the construction industry continues to digitize.
“Some software packages require engineers to spend between nine and 18 months getting up to speed on their technology, UX and UI.
“In today’s fast paced business world, we recognise the need to shorten that learning curve and as a result of its familiar DWG environment, training on BricsCAD AX3000 MEP Suite typically takes between 10 weeks and three months.”
