Trimble's BIM Software Enables MEP Professionals to 
Streamline the Production of Constructible Models

Trimble Nova 15.1 Includes Access to Trimble's Cloud-Based Content Platform 
Enabling MEP Engineers and Manufacturers to Improve Collaboration

SUNNYVALE, Calif, Nov. 14, 2019—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today Trimble Nova version 15.1 Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) design software. In the new version, 3D manufacturer-specific components can be directly downloaded and placed into a model from the cloud-based content platform. Nova users now have easy access to up-to-date manufacturer content in real time. As a result, manufacturers are better able to support their customers through the building process continuum.

Trimble Nova 15.1 features functionality specific to the MEP trades in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. The software enables customers to focus on the constructibility of the building. It integrates design, drawing and engineering calculation and analysis. 

"Buildings are a collection of assembled products. By bringing manufacturers and MEP designers closer together, Trimble helps optimize the constructibility and quality of the end-to-end construction process," said Lawrence Smith, general manager of MEP at Trimble. "The latest version of Nova is the direct result of prioritizing our customers' top feature requests and allowing end users to take part in the design of new features."

In addition, the new version adds significant productivity improvements that were requested by customers, including:  
  • Improved IFC functionality that provides customers with enhanced, native import capability and interoperability
  • Enhanced clash detection with filters, previews and other ease-of-use improvements
  • New task-specific workflows that facilitate specialized operations for each of the MEP disciplines
  • Improved handling of 3D models
Trimble MEP makes Building Information Models (BIM) a reality by delivering solutions that transform disconnected workflows between stakeholders into a coordinated, constructible and actionable building model. To ensure a building is constructed in the most efficient way, the Trimble Constructible Process goes beyond BIM by creating models that use actual manufacturer content, allow for prefabrication and full clash detection, connect stakeholders to coordinate in real-time and bring the model directly from the computer to the field. This process optimizes the entire design, build and operate lifecycle.
