Nemetschek Group – digital transformation in the AEC industry


Providing software solutions, the Nemetschek Group is a pioneer for digital transformation in the construction industry using Open BIM

The Nemetschek Group, which was founded in 1963 by Prof. Georg Nemetschek, is a pioneer of the digital transformation of the AEC industry. The software solutions of the Group’s sixteen brands cover the complete life cycle of building and infrastructure projects, from the initial planning to the design, construction, and operational stages. As one of the world’s leading companies, the Nemetschek Group increases the quality of the construction process and improves the digital workflow of all those involved by driving collaboration and enabling a seamless flow of data and information.

Recent studies show that the construction industry is among the least digitized industries worldwide. At the same time, the complexity of construction projects is rapidly increasing and owners and general contractors alike are facing a growing number of challenges to build on time, within budget, in line with quality requirements – and ideally, sustainably. By leveraging the Nemetschek Group’s various digital solutions, buildings can be planned, built, and operated more efficiently, sustainably, and cost-effectively.

In addition to its prominent role in the AEC industry, the Nemetschek Group guides media customers into the future of digitalization with solutions for visualization, 3D modeling, and animation. In total, the Nemetschek Group employs more than 3,000 experts around the globe. Organized in four customer-oriented divisions (Plan & Design, Build & Construct, Manage & Operate, as well as Media & Entertainment), the company’s software products are currently used by approximately six million users worldwide.

Since its foundation over 50 years ago, the Nemetschek Group has been an advocate for seamless collaboration, connecting professions along the complete building life cycle and actively driving the creation, definition, and use of open standards (Open BIM). Often mistakenly considered as complex, the value for owners and general contractors is obvious:

  • Only open standards allow for a seamless end-to-end flow of BIM data, and
  • Only open standards guarantee that the best companies (rather than those using the right software programs) can be employed for every step of the project

The unique structure of the Nemetschek Group – the Nemetschek Ecosystem – enables the sixteen highly specialized brands to continue operating independently while at the same time remaining extremely close to their respective customer groups. This gives the advantage of keeping in touch with their customers’ specific needs and challenges, while also benefitting from the Group’s resources and synergies through collaboration. Our passionate commitment to client centricity and innovation – two principles deeply rooted in our DNA – enable us to drive true innovation for our customers, providing them with tangible improvements as opposed to future possibilities.
