Trimble showcases groundbreaking solutions at Cairo event

CAIRO, May 25, 2022

Trimble, a leader in construction technology, is at the ‘Digital Construction Conference 2022’ in Cairo to meet the major stakeholders of the Egyptian construction industry and encourage them to adopt its groundbreaking technologies and innovations while working on mega infrastructure projects in the country. 
As a Silver Sponsor of the event, Trimble is bolstering its reach in the region. The solution provider aims to maintain a wider outreach of BIM and construction tech via skill development, embedding a corporate digital culture, and having all project teams complying to standardized processes for optimal construction project delivery.
The two-day event saw Trimble’s experts presenting and lecturing on important topics among eminent construction stakeholders, including officials from the government and municipalities, major project owners, contractors, engineers, property developers and other industry professionals.
Trimble, which has been in the technology industry for more than 40 years, is sharing its insights on the construction market development at the event. 
Tareq Masri, Director of Sales and Channel at Trimble Solutions, Middle East, was a prominent speaker in the leadership panel discussion titled ‘Formulating a Sound Digital Roadmap for an Agile and Profitable Construction Business’ at the event.
"We are excited to be part of the event and look forward to sharing knowledge with the industry stakeholders. Egypt is witnessing a massive growth in construction sector and our intent will be to demonstrate, with real examples, how construction technology can empower them to do their jobs effectively and productively," remarked Masri. 
"Construction has become an important and competitive business across the region and Trimble is well equipped to aid stakeholders navigate their way to building quality projects, profitably, sustainably and with utmost safety," he added. 
According to him, Egypt has been maintaining a consistent growth in its construction sector. The development has been seen after the increase in government investments towards environmentally sustainable, energy-efficient infrastructure that is driving the growth for Egypt’s construction and infrastructure sector, he noted. 
"Egypt is witnessing a massive growth in construction sector and our intent is to demonstrate, with real examples, how construction technology can empower them to do their jobs effectively and productively," he added.
Today (May 25), Trimble’s Business Development Manager Hany Ahmed gave his presentation titled ‘Trimble Digitization and Connected Construction = Confidence’.
The session discussed connected construction highlighting the various tools and possibilities to streamline construction workflows.
"By closing the gaps between people, processes, and technology, Connected Construction helps everyone make better decisions from the start. And when problems do arise, you’re able to identify and resolve them faster," Ahmed told the audience.
According to him, digitalization will reduce upto 80% rework on projects and contribute to upto 50% increase in field productivity. 
A study by researchers also gathered information from 42 Egyptian architects, engineers, and contractors, showing that modern construction technologies like BIM (Building Information Modeling) has an 83 per cent of diffusion within the Egyptian industry. 
Through its participation at the Cairo event, Trimble not only aims to showcase its technologies but also brief the industry professionals there on its ground breaking systems and the methodologies that work best for different types of projects. 
"This will include discussions on the new versions of Trimble’s Tekla solution that contributes to sustainable BIM construction practices, advanced MEP solutions for increased efficiency and time savings and open collaboration through cloud-based tools for transparency and data sharing in real time," stated Paul Wallett, Regional Director of Trimble Solutions for Middle East and India.
"This event is a great platform for us to showcase and share our knowledge with construction professionals for the development of this sector in the country," he stated. 
"Constructible BIM process and construction technology solutions from Trimble has been adopted in key projects, as we can see in some of the major projects – including the Grand Egyptian Museum and Adly Mansour metro station - across Egypt, but a greater outreach is required," explained Wallett. 
"Hence, our participation in the event will help stakeholders (architects, structural engineers, MEP designers and contractors amongst others) understand the better use of these technologies and the benefits that they bring," he added. 
Wallett said that for more than 20 years Trimble had been helping the industry deliver some iconic structures in the region and it looked forward to further contributing through its industry leading solutions.
Apart from the Grand Egyptian Museum, Trimble has also contributed to some of the big projects in the region - including the Zohr Gas Field, New Administrative Capital's stadium, high-speed monorail, Beni Suef combined cycle 4800 MW power station, and the Egyptian Black Sand Factory," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
