We believe in great tools for specific needs

We believe that each expert performs best with a tool that perfectly fits the task at hand. We believe that in a fragmented industry like the AEC there is no one tool that can do anything. We believe in focussed applications that do one thing very good. Because we believe this actually helps you do your job.

And that is why we make a platform to easily build focussed tools. We lower the threshold to build niche applications fast and stable. Because we believe that taking advantage of the fragmentation of our industry is better than fighting it.

About BIMserver.org

The Building Information Model server (BIMserver.org) platform enables you to create your own BIMserver. The software core is based on the open standard IFC and therefore knows how to handle IFC data.

 IFC data are interpreted by a smart core and stored as objects in an underlying database. Everything is based on plugins in an open framework.

The BIMserver software is free and open source (GNU Affero GPL). It’s ideal to support your dynamic collaboration process in the AEC sector.

opensourcebim.org BIMserver.org is part of the open source BIM collective. We intent to collaborate with other open source BIM software developers to improve the quality of the build environment. We believe the collaboration with others allows us to focus and improve our mission. Have a look at opensourcebim.org to meet our friends, or watch this video for an introduction of the projects.
