With BIM on the rise in Japan, Takenaka needed a custom made solution to meet their needs. In particular, they needed features added to BIMcollab that benefit enterprise-level customers. The partnership between KUBUS and Takenaka resulted in not just a translated version of the BIMcollab ecosystem of products but new features added via API integrations useful to Takenaka.
