FAM Holding, a conglomerate based in the UAE that provides business solutions, leveraged Trimble Connect, an advanced Common Data Environment (CDE) solution from Trimble, a leader in construction technology, to ensure timely and more efficient completion of projects
The collaboration between the two entities commenced following the alignment of FAM Holding?s digital transformation strategies and objectives, in an effort to transform the construction landscape in the Middle East. FAM Holding has leveraged Trimble?s advanced solutions on its signature residential towers in the UAE, including the Art Tower and the Snow Tower in Sharjah.
FAM Holding previously had a reliance on the traditional channels of communication, which has a significant impact on their accountability and traceability and rendered it impossible to monitor data sharing activities among project stakeholders, which in turn resulted in outdated information and construction documents, causing financial losses and project delays.
Due to its advanced features, Trimble Connect was chosen by the company as it needed features and functions with simple communication methods, immediate updates and statuses, and connectivity throughout the entire project lifecycle. These features enable the users to follow the project from anywhere in the world, thus aiding FAM Holding in streamlining communications among stakeholders and ensuring a quicker delivery of products.
Chairman of FAM Holding, Dr. Faisal Al Mousa, said, ?We believe Trimble?s technology has consistently proven to be the most efficient solution for our projects. The ?Trimble Connect? solution has helped us maintain and stabilise communication among stakeholders since we began using it. As a result, we have seen radical improvements in communication between teams, which has enhanced their efficiency, reduced waste and errors, thereby increasing profitability. Trimble has been revolutionising the construction industry in the Middle East with its innovative solutions, and we are pleased to have collaborated with them to guarantee the timely delivery for our projects.?
Paul Wallett, regional director of Trimble, commented, ?Due to the expansion of the real estate market and the diverse range of construction projects in the Middle East, project owners today place a high priority on timely delivery. Moreover, the region is entering an era where technology is largely responsible for business advantages. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is essential to current developments in the construction industry, just as every industry has its own unique digital standards. We are very excited to offer our solutions to FAM Holding, as our goals are intertwined, and look forward to seeing the industry grow and develop using modern construction technology.?
