ecoScorecard, the environmental BIM rating system for Revit and Sketchup, has been 100% acquired by VIMtrek, LLC as well as SmartBIM, the parametric smart object developer.
Mar 7, 2016 -- While the two companies have been working together for two years to fully integrate the smart objects and the environmental rating system into the visualization platform the shareholders felt it strategically appropriate to acquire 100% of the shares.
Arol Wolford, President of VIMtrek said, "This is a significant step forward for the business. The ability for the AEC Industry to have a fully integrated solution of being able to create and drag and drop smart objects into the game engine Unity and then run LEED rating analytics on the Revit file is a unique and powerful package."
ecoScorecard is the first of its kind in the marketplace, making architects’ and LEED consultants’ workflow easier and quicker by removing wasted time gathering product documentation on building product manufacturing specifications. Architecture firms, design teams, specifiers, and contractors have all said the same thing: that as the industry moves towards clean, green, and lean building specifications the work load gathering data has grown exponentially. ecoScorecard cuts the time in half and provides a fully automated process.
There is more to ecoScorecard than just providing product documentation. With ecoScorecard, product selection for “green building” is made easier by streamlining the decision making and documentation process. ecoScorecard is available as an online portal 24/7, as an extension of the sales process, allowing architects and designers to see product information and product specifications and create the documentation as needed. This online portal provides an effective solution for a fraction of the cost of an internally built solution.
With ecoScorecard there is minimal, to no, IT involvement making it the most powerful and affordable product documentation platform. ecoScorecard provides a clear and concise platform to communicate how your building product manufacturers information helps owners, architects and their clients with their green building projects. ecoScorecard keeps clients ahead of the fast changing pace of rating system changes with up to date information so when a rating system changes, we update the system for you.
Founded in 2003, VIMtrek (now including SmartBIM and ecoScorecard) offers a suite of tools that provide visualization, data analytics and collaboration to the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. VIMtrek, built on Unity gaming technology, provides a fully immersive, easily navigable, and interactive 3D model that contains all of the BIM data from the Revit file and supplements it with BPM data. The main commercial drive, and in some countries- regulation, to rapid adoption is the reduction of change orders. With the use of collaborative BIM cost overruns can be reduced from double figures to low single figures, saving the owners money and helping to deliver better, greener and more efficient buildings.
