The coast of Trimble Connected construction portfolio enables all professionals throughout the project lifecycle to speed up project processes, improving productivity, quality, transparency, safety and sustainability, while reducing waste. The Trimble Technology Lab will provide students enrolled in the KTH School of Architecture and Built Environment with hands-on experience with Trimble solutions. The applications of these solutions range from the digitization of buildings or sites, from the design and 3D printing of architectural building models and digital fabrication to the implementation of cost estimation and planning of construction to improve productivity and reduce costs. The partnership with Trimble enables KTH to more fully integrate into its curriculum the technological tools that are rapidly transforming the way buildings and living environments are designed and constructed.
“The School of Architecture and the Built Environment is very pleased to establish this exciting and innovative collaboration with Trimble,” said Muriel Beser Hugosson, director of the School of Architecture and the Built Environment, KTH. “The new Trimble Technology Lab will help us provide an applied experience of cutting-edge technologies to the next generation of civil engineers and architects during their studies. We look forward to many exciting developments in teaching and research through our collaboration.
“from Sweden The KTH Royal Institute of Technology is an exceptional addition to our network of laboratories around the world, ”said Tove Lindbland, Business Development Manager, Trimble Sweden. “We believe that the lab can play an important role in providing students with better opportunities to acquire knowledge and practical skills on advanced technologies that will enable them to have a future impact on construction in the region.
“Trimble hardware and software applications, generously provided by Trimble, provide fantastic educational opportunities,” said Kjartan Gudmundsson, Director of Undergraduate and Graduate Education, School of Architecture and the Built Environment, KTH. “We will be able to further develop our training programs and courses with real-world applications for design and modeling, estimation and planning based on virtual design and construction, energy performance analysis of buildings, structural analysis, laser scanning photogrammetry and land surveying. our current and future students even better prepared for the challenges of the future. “
The lab will include a wide range of cutting edge solutions from Trimble such as the Trimble® SX10 Scanning Total Station and TX8 Scanner. Advanced software solutions include RealWorks® scanning software, Trimble Business Center Infrastructure Construction Edition, Quadri, Novapoint, Quantum, Tilos, office suite Vico, Tekla® Structures, Tekla Structural Designer, Tekla tedds, Trimble Connect and the company’s popular 3D modeling software, SketchUp Pro and SketchUp studio bundle.
