Trimble brings Quadri BIM to North America

Trimble Quadri BIM collaboration software enables an optimized and construction-ready design, closing the gap between office and field

Trimble has expanded its Quadri Building Information Modeling (BIM) collaboration software to North America.

Quadri BIM software has been popular in Europe since 2013, Trimble said in a release, and will be available after a virtual launch and demo event on Tuesday, April 27.

According to the company, the software optimizes construction designs and closes the gap between the office and the field by providing data environment for 3D project models and facilitating collaboration across a project for planners, designers, construction teams and project owners.

Quadri BIM users have access to both utility and construction information, which allows faster collaboration on projects such as building roads, bridges and railways.

“Trimble Quadri streamlines the data flow from design to construct, providing designers, civil contractors and owners a common data environment to collaborate on infrastructure projects in real-time,” said Shelly Nooner, general manager with Trimble Civil Design and Engineering Division.

Nooner said that the software has been used in infrastructure projects throughout Norway after the Norwegian Public Roads Administration began requiring digital design models, and in preparation for the North American release, Trimble have been running pilot programs with several U.S. Departments of Transportation (DOTs) to understand their needs as they prepare for the Federal Highway Administration’s Every Day Counts initiative.

“The sooner that we can bring designers, engineers and contractors together, the more efficient a project will be,” said Priscilla Benavides, design manager with Central Region New Mexico DOT. “A collaborative platform such as Trimble’s Quadri software helps us think as one and work toward efficient project delivery from the design to the constructible model.”
