Solibri Establishes U.S. Office
Jonathan Widney to lead growth and development of Solibri in the Americas, as CEO of Solibri LLC.
Atlanta, GA, Scottsdale, AZ and Helsinki, Finland March 4, 2008 — Solibri, Inc., the leading provider of checking, analysis and building code checking solutions for Building Information Modeling (BIM) based designs in the construction field, has announced the opening of a North American office in Scottsdale, Arizona. Solibri has experienced consistent growth in the U.S. during the past several years, leading to the decision to establish a physical entity to continue that growth and provide support and BIM consulting services to the growing Solibri customer base.
Solibri LLC will be led by Jonathan Widney. He is regarded as a leading authority in BIM and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC). Jonathan was most recently the Director of Business Development for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Division of Autodesk, Inc., after that company’s June, 2007 acquisition of NavisWorks Ltd. Prior to that, Jonathan was the founder and President of NavisWorks Inc., the US subsidiary of the UK-based developer of 3D/4D Design Review technology.
“We are very proud to have Jonathan join us to run Solibri operations in North America. Jonathan brings extensive knowledge, integrity and market development experience to our team, states Heikki KulusjTMrvi, CEO Solibri, Inc. The results that Jonathan achieved with NavisWorks are respected throughout the BIM/VDC community, and we are anticipating that Solibri will achieve great success, as well. We can clearly see how the BIM market is developing fast in the US and now is the right time to strengthen our efforts.”
“This is a great fit for me, as my focus will be on the continued adoption of BIM. Being able to serve vendor neutral solutions to customers is also very important for me”, says Jonathan. “By remaining neutral I am able to focus on the needs of the design and construction community. Solibri will continue to be a proactive, customer-centric and flexible company that is focused on enabling users to maximize the power of BIM.”
Solibri, Inc. was founded in 1999 to develop and market solutions that improve the quality of Building Information Modeling and make the entire design process more productive. Solibri is well recognized as the pioneer in providing out of the box software that automates the BIM Design Review, Analysis, and Code Checking process.
