Trimble achieves CIBSE verification for all mechanical calculations in Stabicad
Trimble’s Stabicad The First Software In Industry To Receive CIBSE’s Certification For Mechanical Calculations
Milton Keynes, UK, October 12, 2022 – Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that its engineering design software for Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing (MEP) designs, Stabicad, is now the first software to receive CIBSE certification for all mechanical calculations. This follows last year’s CIBSE certification of Stabicad’s air systems and heating & cooling water systems calculations. CIBSE is the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers
(CIBSE), an international operating authority on building services engineering that sets standards and publishes Guidance and Codes which are internationally recognised as authoritative.
Mechanical design professionals are under mounting pressure to produce accurate designs within shorter timeframes. Using specialist MEP software like Stabicad, that comes with integrated calculations certified by CIBSE, ensures calculations’ accuracy and efficacy. This in turn contributes to the further elimination of redesign and rework.
CIBSE Software Verification Assessment
Trimble worked closely with CIBSE to develop CIBSE’s Software Verification Assessments (SVA). This independent verification process for the quality of calculations performed by MEP design software platforms, assuring design engineers’ calculations follow CIBSE standards. To support CIBSE in developing the independent software verification process, Trimble has worked closely with other industry design software providers in CIBSE’s Society of Digital Engineering.
“We are happy to announce that Trimble is now the first in the industry to have all of its mechanical building system design modules independently certified by CIBSE,” said Carl Collins, head of Digital Engineering at CIBSE. “The CIBSE SVA process assures engineers that their calculations in software are in accordance with the CBSE guidance. Any calculation bearing the SVA logo can be trusted to perform calculations according to CIBSE methods and provide the results expected.”
Lawrence Smith, Vice President and General Manager of Trimble’s Construction Management Solutions division, added: “Trust is a critical requirement in the digital transformation of the construction industry. Independent verifications around data quality underscore Trimble’s efforts to ensure our customers’ success.”
