Design Data Acquired by Nemetschek Group

LINCOLN, Neb. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 28, 2016 — Design Data, a leader in 3D steel detailing and Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, announced today the company has been acquired by Nemetschek Group, based in Munich, Germany. Nemetschek is a globally leading software provider for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, with 12 brands and 2.1 million users in 142 countries.

In keeping with the strategic alignment of Nemetschek Group, Design Data will continue to be led by its current management as an independent brand company in the future.

“For our company, the acquisition means accelerated growth into international markets,” said Damon Scaggs, president of Design Data. “For our customers, it allows them to continue to use the leading software in the structural steel detailing industry, while now benefitting from increased integration with Nemetschek’s software solutions throughout the BIM process. SDS/2 seamlessly plugs into Nemetschek’s architectural and design offerings, while providing their customers access to Design Data’s longstanding manufacturing expertise.”

Design Data recently announced support for the European connection design codes and drawing standards with its SDS/2 Detailing solution. SDS/2 software is unique in that it automates the connection design process by optimizing every joint based on specific code requirements established by each market.

With the acquisition, the Nemetschek Group fills a gap concerning engineering detailing software for steel. Nemetschek is now able to cover the complete structural workflow from analysis and design (via the brand Scia), through detailing and fabrication (Design Data), all the way to reviews and markup (Bluebeam).
