Building design software integrated

Bentley Systems and Trelligence have integrated their AECOsim Building Designer and Affinity program, respectively.

06/07/2012


Bentley Systems and Trelligence announced integration between their respective software products to provide end-to-end building lifecycle support. The integration between Trelligence’s Affinity and Bentley’s AECOsim Building Designer makes the program and early design models created in Affinity available to the users of AECOsim Building Designer. Members of the project team can move an Affinity program into AECOsim Building Designer where it can be used to guide design development. Alternatively, designers can develop the building schematic design model in Affinity and then move it to AECOsim Building Designer for detailed design. The combination of AECOsim Building Designer and Affinity provides a robust set of tools that yield improvements in quality and reductions in cost throughout the building lifecycle.
