Cityworks Touts Full Lifecycle Asset Management for Infrastructure

Thursday, August 25th, 2022

Geospatial data and information is one of the most critical elements for infrastructure improvement projects and asset management. The GIS  provides  context for where infrastructure is placed, its attributes, topography, maintenance history, and much more.  These attributes  track an asset’s  performance and catalog its proximity to other assets. Cityworks adds to this context by providing historical activity of when and how the infrastructure was placed, what type of work has been performed against the infrastructure, and the ability to identify the encompassing business risk should that infrastructure fail. With its platform architecture, Cityworks is able to consume various sources of data which inform organizations and assist with smart and efficient planning as stewards within their communities.

Cityworks was acquired by Trimble in 2019. It is built as a GIS-centric, platform-based, software for asset management and permitting. across the asset lifecycle with added capabilities for project management, contract management, and activity-based solutions. Cityworks, alongside e-Builder, a Trimble BIM Solution that integrates on the platform, provides comprehensive asset management from the permitting phase through building and inspection into operations and maintenance. 

Recently within Trimble, a new sector was created that is specifically focused on owners of infrastructure and the public sector. The Owner and Public Sector includes Cityworks and e-Builder along with Trimble Utilities and Agile Assets, a pavement manager. They are positioned as part of the construction sector with a focus on the public sector and leverages these solutions that are focused on completing and fulfilling the different stages of the design, build, operate process to provide a comprehensive GIS-centric solution for the public sector.

AECCafe Year In Review 2019

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

Each year when I look back on what was accomplished during the technology year, I’m amazed at how many of the same topics come up. The reason for this is most likely because none of the challenges put before the AEC industry are going to be solved that easily. The technology used to solve real-world problems keeps evolving and the problems themselves become morphed or more urgent.

For example, climate change has been on our agenda for several years now. It’s not going to go away.
