New service set up to support concept, design, construction and facilities management
A new group has been formed from the acquisition of BIW Technologies Ltd and German-based Conject Holdings GmbH, to provide Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (ILM) software applications.
The group’s operating subsidiaries, BIW Technologies and Conject AG, will each retain their own local identities, offices, staff and resources. The new group has combined revenues of €18 million (US $24 million), with 180 employees and 170,000 active users.
ILM applications support asset-based projects through the whole lifecycle, from concept, design and construction through to FM.
“Conject and BIW share the same vision and approach to innovation and customer service,” said Dr Uwe Forgber, director, Conject Dubai.
“Many of our customers realise that 80% of all costs come from running a building, not constructing it. Together, Conject and BIW can offer clients a service that meets the needs of managing those critical assets.”
BIW claims the online project management software is carbon neutral, and has been used by around 15,000 organisations. Regional projects include Down Town Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi’s Capital Plaza.
“In these challenging economic times, clients look for suppliers who are financially secure, have a robust business model and global reach,” BIW Dubai GM Dr Asif Sharif added.
