Memphis, Tennessee, 06. December 2018. RIB Software SE, the international leading provider of 5D Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, has concluded a strategic three-year deal, estimated as a phase II agreement, with Hathaway Dinwiddie, the long-standing California provider of general contracting, project planning, and construction management services. Hathaway Dinwiddie’s implementation of MTWO – the cloud-based, virtual-to-physical planning solution will begin immediately.
The Hathaway Dinwiddie team expects this newly-procured solution, which operates on the Microsoft Azure cloud, to better facilitate Hathaway Dinwiddie’s “Precision Planning” approach to project execution, which involves a sophisticated BIM approach.
“Our purchase of the MTWO platform will allow us to continue our vision of providing the most advanced tools for planning and executing complex and iconic projects,” John Cowles, Senior Vice President and Preconstruction Manager at Hathaway Dinwiddie, said. “With MTWO, we found a freshly written, cloud-based solution that enhances our current model-based estimating and planning workflow. This software will allow our current workflows to evolve to meet the demands of where we believe the industry is headed. We will be more than prepared for the next generation of estimators, planners, and builders. "
The Hathaway Dinwiddie mission is “to be the builder of choice for certainty of delivery and outstanding value,” and they have demonstrated success with this goal over their last 100 years in this industry. Still, with MTWO – the first ever vertical cloud for the real estate and construction industries, RIB Americas Executives expect Hathaway Dinwiddie to experience unprecedented growth.
“MTWO is the ideal technology solution for General Contractors in an age that requires construction leaders to maintain a mindset for digitization,” Mickey Carr, CEO of RIB Americas, said. “Our new partner, Hathaway Dinwiddie, is a leader in the virtual-to-physical planning process and we believe RIB’s cloud-based, fully integrated, 5D platform – MTWO – will create value, and will enable continued business growth for years to come.”
