"For 18 years we have been using Bentley MicroStation and Bentley Architecture for our CAD and BIM programs but decided to switch to Graphisoft Archicad.

AECBytes: BIM Cloud

April 23, 2014 8:26 am

"Towards the end of last month, I attended Graphisoft’s launch of its new BIMcloud service in Tokyo, Japan. Graphisoft chose to have this event in Tokyo because many of the leading design and construction firms in Japan have standardized on ArchiCAD as their BIM solution. These include Nikken Sekkei, a 2,500 person architecture, engineering, planning, and construction management firm with over 20,000 projects in 40 countries; Kajima Corporation, a global construction firm with over 9000 employees worldwide; Obayashi Corporation, also a global construction firm with over 9,200 employees, which provides additional construction related services such as engineering and urban development; and the somewhat smaller Maeda Corporation with 3,700 employees, which is focused on building construction, civil engineering, and design/build projects. All of these firms have a long history in the AEC industry going back to at least over a 100 years, with Kajima Corporation being founded as early as 1840; they are also leading global AEC firms, with a particularly strong presence in the Asia-Pacific region. It is to Graphisoft’s credit that it has succeeded in establishing ArchiCAD as the dominant BIM application in these firms. As such, Tokyo seemed the perfect setting for the launch of its new BIMcloud service, guaranteed of a warm reception by Japanese AEC firms, many of which were able to attend the launch event in person."
