Trimble unveils key building solutions at Heriot-Watt expo

DUBAI, November 29, 2021

Trimble, a global construction technology leader, showcased its portfolio of solutions for the building industry at the Heriot-Watt University Dubai's WATTXPO event.
WATTXPO was organised to create an environment similar to Expo Dubai for the students, where they could learn and interact with key industry players such as Trimble. 
The campus was transformed into nine different pavilions featuring activities and themes like art and culture, business, sustainability, environment, engineering and technology, said the statement from Trimble. 
The company attended the WATTXPO as part of its continuous engagement with stakeholders, including universities, to highlight the role of cutting-edge technologies in construction projects. Its participation in the event showed anew the value it attaches to engaging with young budding minds of the industry. 
Trimble experts demonstrated how its diverse construction technologies can help ensure efficiency and safety within infrastructure construction workflows. The team engaged with the students and allowed them to try the equipment on the students’ own created models, it stated. 
This allowed an enhanced experience in a much different perspective for the students to understand the use of these technologies. The technologies presented at the event were HoloLens, X7 Laser Scanner, Trimble Connect, and Tekla, it added. 
Paul Wallett, Regional Director (Middle East and India) said: "At Trimble, it is always rewarding for us to share with young minds our expertise as a leading solutions provider to major construction projects in the UAE. We consider it a privilege to engage with them as we discuss how technologies are now bridging the gaps between the physical and digital worlds."
"Their ideas and thoughts are inspiring. During WATTXPO , we were given another opportunity to exchange insights and interact with the students. We thank Heriot-Watt University Dubai for inviting us to be a part of its special day," he stated.
Trimble encouraged the architectural students to visualize the process of integrating the company’s technologies into their miniature construction models.
According to him, many of the UAE’s large-scale projects have utilized these technologies. Its Tekla solution, for instance, was used in the iconic Burj Khalifa and Museum of the Future structures. 
Claire Roper-Browning – Regional Director Marketing, Recruitment, Admissions and Communications at Heriot-Watt University Dubai, said: "Through WATTXPO, we brought our expertise across technology, innovation, business, interior, and fashion design to prospective students who wanted to experience the various courses we offer here in a fun and unique setting."
"We were delighted to host a leading construction technology company like Trimble and have our students engage and learn from them," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
