It’s the mix that does it: advanced theory and practical expertise
We are often asked about our name. We are architects, civil and structural engineers, computer scientists and building informatics engineers and love structural design and art. The English term Architecture, Engineering, Construction hits the nail on the head. That as engineers we are also pragmatic can be seen in the simple “3“, with which we enhance the AEC by adding Consulting competence and make it our Company.
Founded in 1996, our focus was once on IT consultancy for civil and structural engineering. Just over three years later AEC3 Ltd. was created with partner offices in Thatcham (UK) and San Francisco (USA). The number of satisfied clients and partners grew year by year. And for this reason, in the year 2006, we changed our name to AEC3 Deutschland GmbH.
From the beginning we have been actively involved in buildingSMART International (previously known as International Alliance for Interoperability, IAI) and have borne responsibility here for the development of the IFC (ISO16739) standard – and the buildingSMART e.V. A further focus has been on German and European research and development projects, where we, together with others, drive forward change processes in the implementation of BIM. Because BIM is our passion.
We put great importance on our software independence. Your advantage as a client: system neutrality. We do not think in categorical IT solutions, but always place our focus on your company and your individual requirements. And in the end, you get exactly what you need and if you wish, everything that is possible. You benefit not only from our expertise, gained over many years of practical experience, and our market knowledge but also from a broad range of possibilities. You have the choice – we want to make it easy for you.
Our professional team of consultants works in Munich and Dresden and supports you in all questions related to implementing the BIM method for your company. Our know-how and your competencies create a strong foundation in BIM to exchange, provide and create information that is reusable by project partners – for the whole lifecycle. This means you create the best possible preconditions long-term with regard to quality, time and costs to make the right decisions. It is of utmost importance for us at AEC3 to achieve the best and fastest project execution for employer and contractor whilst ensuring the highest level of assurance and efficiency.
