MBCC is well-prepared for the digital era
The strong trend towards increasing digitalization in the construction industry is also reflected in MBCC Group’s digital offering. With more than 700 BIM (Building Information Modeling) objects and a steadily growing object database for the Master Builders Solutions, Watson Bowman Acme, Thermotek, Senergy™ and Finestone® brands, MBCC Group offers a large BIM portfolio for the construction industry. The objects are available in multiple global BIM libraries and databases.
In addition to BIM, MBCC Group also offers various solution finders, calculation tools and other digital services: One example is the Online Planning Tool by Master Builders Solutions. This specification tool not only helps construction professionals find the right solutions for their projects quickly and easily, but also adjusts flexibly to changing project requirements and provides crucial information along each step of the project-planning process.
