Borås Energi och Miljö AB has selected Ides MasterConcept as their future IT-platform for all types of plant information. With structured plant information, Borås Energi och Miljö can easily verify, standardize, maintain, analyze and implement plant changes.

MasterConcept – a strategic platform in the IT environment

Borås Energi och Miljö runs a big investment project (EMC – Energy and Environment Center), where a new central heating power plant and sewage treatment plant is being built at the same location to achieve the greatest possible synergies. The project will deliver large amounts of technical plant information where it is important that Borås Energi och Miljö can effectively retrieve and manage the information.

– A large amount of plant information from suppliers will be in a form of documents, but Borås Energi och Miljö also want MasterConcept to take care of pure plant information that must be stored in a structured way. One example is the EMC investment project, where deliveries of BIM information easily can be managed and maintained, says Fredrik Andersson, IT Architect at Borås Energi och Miljö.

Complex BIM models and plant information

The technical plant information is key information for most departments in Borås Energi och Miljö. The concept of Plant Information refers to both traditional plant documentation including 3D models (BIM) but also equipment, component data and economically related information.

– MasterConcept offers more than just managing CAD drawings and documents. Today, there are different roles and people who should be able to analyze what equipment there is and where it is located in the plant. With MasterConcept integration with 3D BIM that connects information inside complex 3D models, Borås Energi och Miljö will have full support for structuring the information in MasterConcept in the future, says Lars Geidne CEO Ides AB.

Sigma IT Consulting – partner in the delivery of MasterConcept

Sigma IT Consulting is an Ides Partner and Reseller and has long experience of implementing systems and integrations. Sigma will jointly with Ides AB deliver services and integrations.

About MasterConcept BIM

MasterConcept BIM is a platform for architectural and construction engineering data where documents, CAD models, 3D models along with objects and equipment information are structured. MasterConcept also includes Facility Management with preventive maintenance, work orders and fault reporting. MasterConcept has its hand held device App, AssetMaster, to support Maintenance activities such as Work Order and Fault reporting on-line or off-line mode.

Ides AB and HSarchitects has signed a strategic license contract for BIM lifecycle management including Facility Management and Maintenance. The HSarchitects owner, HSBIM, have made this investment as a part of a development strategy that together with Ides build up a cloud-based solution for Maintenance based on BIM within HSarchitects.

HSarchitects invest in Ides MasterConcept Cloud technology where design and technical data, documents, 3D models and Preventive Maintenance are unified in to the same system.

“In our company culture we embrace good and innovative ideas and that’s why Ides and their innovative technology match our culture. With MasterConcept, we will develop our company not just in our existing business in architecture and design but also to give us a platform to expand our business in to the life cycle management area. ” says Peter Wang, President and co-founder of HSarchitects

The platform is based on MasterConcept BIM Engineering Data HUB and Maintenance HUB. Together with a handful of applications, the maintenance and design departments will have access to the cloud and data platform. By developing BIM in to operation and maintenance, HSarchitects take a strategic step to support their customers not only in planning and design but also all the way to operation.

“It’s a strategic partnership with HSarchitects where our platform in combination and our cloud technology are combined for best practice. Together with HSarchitects we create an innovative and high-tech business model for an industry in development both in China but also world wide. We also move maintenance preparations and maintenance set-up in to an early stage of all projects for a faster handover process after going live.” Lars Geidne, CEO of Ides AB

About HSarchitects

HSa originates from a native ideal about humanism, i.e. to create a brand-new design partnership paradigm so that excellent talents, while pursuing their respective ideals, can work together to create extraordinary value. Over the years, in spite of constant expansion of its business portfolio and diversification, HSa has never changed its core spirit of humanism. In terms of the brand image, “HS” is a combination of the initials of two Chinese characters where “H”, short for “Han” in Chinese, refers to the extensive and profound traditional culture, and “S”, an abbreviation for “Si” in Chinese, refers to constant thinking and researching. In combination, “HS” is intended to show a integrated commitment to provision of the best architectural design services in the local market of China.

In contrast to the centralization model of traditional Chinese design institutes, HSa adopts an entirely different model by allying different professional teams for different design businesses, including planning, construction, structural engineering, MEP engineering, landscape, interior design and its recently established BIM digital design business.
