Trimble recently announced it has acquired the assets of privately-held MAYBIM based in Provo, Utah. MAYBIM is a leader in providing 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) services to contractors with a focus on mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors across the U.S. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The investment shows Trimble's interest in expanding business outside of the Agriculture Division.
MAYBIM's suite of 3D BIM professional services allows for contractors to rapidly scale their BIM capabilities regardless of the requirements from the building owner or general contractor. MAYBIM provides contractors customized project deliverables that can include 3D Modeling, BIM Coordination, 3D Laser Scanning and 3D Modeling from Scanned Point Clouds.
"Today's MEP contractors are increasingly receiving requests to use BIM on their projects, but the adoption and implementation takes time. The use of 3D BIM services to supplement their own capabilities can help MEP contractors accelerate that process," said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble's MEP Division. "By combining the experience of the MAYBIM and the Trimble MEP BIM services team, we are able to expand our skills and capacity to support our client base's BIM capabilities through the full workflow including field layout and 3D laser scanning."
"Helping contractors implement and expand their BIM capabilities is one of our core values," said Ben May, founder of MAYBIM. "We're excited to join our 19 years of BIM experience with Trimble, a leader in BIM and 3D modeling tool development."
Trimble's 3D BIM Consulting Services for MEP contractors are available now. Details and contact information are located at: MEP.Trimble.com/services.
The MAYBIM business will be reported as part of the Engineering and Construction Segment.
MAYBIM is a Virtual Design and Construction technology company providing BIM services to clients across the U.S. The company specializes in semiconductor, health care, data center and other complex technology projects. MAYBIM's advanced services include BIM implementation and consulting such as BIM strategies, technology pathways, BIM best practices, MEP model coordination, shop-drawings and Scan-to-BIM services.
