University of Tampere in Finland establishes Trimble Technology Lab for the Faculty of the Built Environment


The Trimble Technology Lab will provide students enrolled in University of Tampere Hands-on experience of the Faculty of the Built Environment with Trimble solutions. Applications for these solutions range from conceptual 3D modeling and design, 3D infrastructure modeling, planning and construction, structural analysis, design and optimization, planning and planning based on BIM. , management of the design and general use of BIM solutions throughout the lifecycle of a building or infrastructure project. The partnership with Trimble enables University of Tampere integrate more fully into its curricula the technological tools that are rapidly transforming the way the built environment is designed, constructed and managed.

“Trimble’s cutting-edge technology lab in University of Tampere will be the first of its kind in Finland,” noted Allyson mcduffie, Director of Education and Outreach at Trimble. “This commitment is at the crossroads of technology and education in the built environment. By increasing our already strong commitment by establishing a Trimble Technology Lab on campus, we are able to increase access to transformative technologies, ensuring that students are equipped to shape the future sustainable world. “

“The partnership with Trimble will significantly strengthen our civil engineering and architectural studies by establishing a Trimble technology lab,” said Antti Lönnqvist, dean of the built environment faculty at University of Tampere. “Digitization and the changes it brings are a great opportunity and a challenge for the built environment sector. Research and related university education are very important operational areas for us. We want to equip our students with the best possible capabilities in modern technological solutions. This includes, in particular, solutions for the construction of buildings and infrastructure with an emphasis on construction and spatial surveying, architectural design, structural design, road and rail engineering, transportation systems. , geotechnical design and management of construction projects. at the forefront, especially with regard to the full use of modern technological solutions in the built environment. “

The lab will include a wide range of Trimble technologies, including mechanical total stations and advanced software solutions, including RealWorks.® scanning software, Trimble Business Center Infrastructure Construction Edition, Quadri, Novapoint, Quantum, Tilos, Tekla® Structures, Tekla Structural Designer, Tekla tedds, Trimble Connect® collaboration platform and the company’s popular 3D modeling software, SketchUp Pro and SketchUp studio bundle.

The coast of Trimble Connected construction portfolio enables all professionals throughout the project lifecycle to speed up project processes, improving productivity, quality, transparency, safety and sustainability, while reducing waste.
