Graitec has acquired StrucSoft Solutions, a software developer dedicated to prefabricated manufacturing and offsite construction within the AEC industry
Originally founded in 1994 by George Ajami, StrucSoft Solutions is a Canadian-based software developer, dedicated to the prefabricated manufacturing and offsite construction sectors within the AEC industry.
Headquartered in Montreal, Quebec StrucSoft opened an office in Liverpool in 2017 to provide support to North American and European clients.
The company develops a suite of light gauge steel and wood framing software to model, coordinate, engineer, and manufacture directly within the Autodesk Revit® environment.
Graitec, now operating in 10 plus countries, is already established in StrucSoft’s main markets (i.e., USA, Canada and UK) creating immediate commercial synergies.
From a technological point of view, Graitec and StrucSoft share the same strong DNA. StrucSoft Solutions’ MWF (or Metal Wood Framer) software completes the functional coverage of Graitec’s Fabricate offering by adding light gauge steel and wood to existing rebar, prefabricated concrete and structural steel.
The acquisition of StrucSoft Solutions reinforces Graitec’s CREATE – SIMULATE – FABRICATE – MANAGE strategy and its willingness to provide end to end solutions for the construction industry.
‘Breaking silos between engineering firms, detailers, manufacturers, and construction sites’
Manuel Liedot, GRAITEC CEO, said: “I am delighted to welcome StrucSoft, its customers and its talented team to the Graitec group.
“StrucSoft’s native integration with Revit is very complementarity with the Graitec and Autodesk’s BIM ecosystem.
“StrucSoft significantly strengthens our ambition of breaking silos between engineering firms, detailers, manufacturers, and construction sites.
“The acquisition of StrucSoft also demonstrates our continued commitment to the North American market.”
George Ajami, president of StrucSoft Solutions Ltd, added: “We are extremely enthusiastic about joining the Graitec team. Their customer first mentality and their dedication to the development of technology within the prefabrication and manufacturing segments closely aligns with StrucSoft’s mission.
“This next step in the evolution of our company and products will enable our combined teams to better service our customers and push the boundaries of what our software can achieve in the manufacturing and AEC sectors.”
