NEW YORK- Enstoa, Inc., the leading systems integrator for capital projects worldwide, today announced its acquisition of designtech, the UK’s leading computational BIM consultancy. The acquisition will enhance Enstoa’s BIM offerings and support its further expansion into the EMEA market.
designtech, based in London, supports complex capital projects with a range of building design solutions and computational and algorithmic processes. Leveraging advancing technology, designtech enables businesses to cut down on costly inefficiencies and errors through design simulation, automation and sophisticated engineering data management.
“designtech was built to address the deep inefficiencies in the design and construction industry,” said designtech Director David Flynn. “Enstoa has the same philosophy for tackling these problems and together we see an opportunity to deliver a more cohesive and integrated solution to our clients around the world. We both share ideals and want to focus on the targeted use of data for planning, construction, and asset management of the built environment.”
“So much analysis of the value of built assets happens during the design stage when the owner has already outlined their brief,” said Flynn. “Combining our approach with Enstoa’s deep industry knowledge and access, owners will be able to optimize commercial and design decisions earlier allowing them to maximize value and reduce waste.”
Enstoa, founded in 2007 on a vision of taking an evidence-based approach to capital projects, is one of the fastest-growing private companies in the world and the only global professional services firm specializing in capital projects improvement.
“Organizations today with strategic physical and built assets need a fully integrated data platform from planning and design through construction and asset management,” said Enstoa CEO Jordan Cram. “Enstoa is now poised to meet these requirements head-on with designtech’s BIM capabilities and our deep competency in cost, scheduling, procurement, and resource management.”
Cram continued, “This acquisition provides Enstoa the ability to leverage functional design and engineering expertise and technical product prowess in BIM automation tools.”
