Mott MacDonald announces new strategic partnership with 3D Repo

    MacDonald Ventures, the investment arm of global management, engineering and
    development consultancy Mott MacDonald, has announced a new strategic
    partnership with 3D Repo, pioneers of cloud-based design collaboration for
    building information modelling (BIM).

    partnership follows a recent £2.3m A-series investment round in 3D Repo led by
    The Ingenious Group’s infrastructure ventures EIS service, and brings more
    positive momentum for the innovative start-up.

    MacDonald currently utilises BIM across the building, oil and gas, transport,
    water, and power industry sectors, and plans to use 3D Repo’s online
    collaborative platform to enhance collaboration and to drive better results on
    construction projects across the UK.

    Russell, chief digital officer at Mott MacDonald Digital Ventures, said:

    brings a long list of tangible benefits that ultimately save time and money
    through reduced risk, minimising waste, faster delivery, and enhanced sustainability.
    Through our partnership with 3D Repo we’ll be able to connect people with the
    information they need to drive better decisions and deliver more of the UK’s
    most ambitious construction projects.”

    MacDonald is a US$2bn organisation, employing over 16,000 people and delivering
    projects all over the world. Notable developments include Heathrow Terminal 5,
    the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, and the US$13bn redevelopment of JFK

    Jozef Dobos, founder and CEO of 3D Repo, said:

    Repo is already partnered with a growing list of forward-thinking tech
    companies including Opentext, BrydenWood, and Mission Room, among others. Our
    new partnership with Mott MacDonald will open new doors for 3D Repo and allow
    us to deploy our digital construction platform on more of the most challenging
    infrastructure projects in the UK.”

    3D Repo has deployed its collaborative BIM platform on projects such as Wood
    Wharf district, the remodelling of King’s Cross railway station and Hinkley
    Point C nuclear power station. Its multi-award-winning digital platform for BIM
    provides access to data to anyone with a web browser whenever and wherever they
    need it. The service democratises the data, mitigates risk and reduces
    complexity for everyone involved including architects, engineers, and
    contractors. 3D Repo allows users to manage 3D model revisions and highlight
    potential clashes and safety issues using live collaboration tools which enable
    the whole project team to work from a single source of truth, anywhere and at
    any time.
