Trimble acquires e-Builder to offer data-driven construction solution
By Jillian MorganConstruction
Trimble has acquired Florida-based, privately-held construction management software company e-Builder for $500 million to offer an integrated project delivery solution for owners, program managers and contractors.
The combined solution aims to create improved transparency, accountability, faster payments, increased productivity and a competitive advantage, according to Trimble. The ability to convert large volumes of disparate data into workflows and outcomes was another listed benefit.
Trimble states that the acquisition will benefit its two main areas of focus: civil engineering projects, and building and structure construction.
“We intend to aggressively bring e-Builder solutions to civil and building contractors and the international market,” said Steven Berglund, president and CEO of Trimble. “We see a significant opportunity in leveraging data and intelligence gained through design-construct workflows across the full infrastructure lifecycle.”
