GRAPHISOFT Spearheads Construction Industry in Ireland—New BIM Partnership

GRAPHISOFT established new channel partnership in Ireland as the government mandate for BIM pushes more professionals to BIM workflows.


As the Irish Government lays out its strategy for Building Information Modeling (BIM) to be used in the AEC industry for all public building projects, GRAPHISOFT boosts its presence in the country with a new channel partnership.

AxonWare and GRAPHISOFT Sign Agreement

The Hungarian BIM leader has signed a new reseller agreement with Irish software licensing specialist AxonWare, to meet increased demand for BIM software in the Irish design and construction industry. Dan McGovern, managing director of AxonWare said that they are expanding their portfolio and adding much-needed BIM capability to their product range.

“With the addition of GRAPHISOFT’s intuitive BIM software, ARCHICAD, we will be able to offer better service and more choice for architects, architectural technicians, and BIM managers in Ireland,” McGovern said. “Given the Government’s announcement of new BIM requirements for public buildings and infrastructure projects in Ireland, we are now ideally placed to help our customers deliver projects that meet the new standards,” he added.

01 – GRAPHISOFT’s ARCHICAD 21 with patent-pending new technologies is one of the world’s leading BIM software solutions.

“The Irish construction market continues to post positive results and GRAPHISOFT is increasing its investments and activities in the local market,” said Adrian Girling, managing director of GRAPHISOFT UK. “Ireland is a key element to our UK and Irish business and we are committed to mirroring our success in the UK and expanding our customer base in Ireland.”

Ireland Government Demands BIM

On 21 November 2017, the Irish Government announced that as part of its digital technology strategy, BIM will be required for the design, construction, and operation of all public buildings and infrastructure on a phased basis over the next four years.
