The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is an economically diverse region, but its economic outlook is promising. It includes both the oil-rich economies in the Gulf and countries that are resource-scarce in relation to population, such as Egypt and Yemen. But Egypt’s economy is slowly recovering from the turmoil that followed its 2011 revolution. So “countries of this region have a common feature: building industry is intensely developed there. Also over the last few years, there has been a significant change in the BIM way. A succession of positive Building Information Modelling (BIM) project outcomes has helped convince the construction industry of the Middle East region that BIM should be the way forward. The large-scale adoption of BIM in construction could mean endless Omnix and AGA CAD collaboration possibilities for the future,” Gitana added.
AGA CAD’s technology and experience in Revit-based products and solutions development coupled with Omnix International’s sales, marketing, implementation and support strength, will help designers of the MENA region to improve project outcomes, prevent design mistakes, reduce the budget of the project, and save plenty of working hours.
