Construction Technology Innovation in the Post-Recession World
Over the course of three days in October 2011, customers, partners and employees of Meridian Systems converged in Huntington Beach, California for the 14th annual Meridian Systems User Conference. General Manager Geene Alhady kicked off the opening keynote with a “technology innovation” theme that would be carried throughout the program, one that will percolate throughout the coming year as Meridian seeks to deliver integrated business value to the construction industry. As the world emerges from global recession, this industry faces new business realities. The industry is going global and Meridian is fast following its clients into new parts of the world, recognizing the demand for integrated project delivery. It also recognizies the unique needs of all stakeholders, and has reorganized around the specific needs of both businesses that own and manage capital programs and assets (Owners) as well as those that build them (architects,engineers and contractors) to offer a complete solution philosophy.
Given all the complexities and interdependencies of this industry, the last thing companies building, managing and maintaining infrastructure and large capital projects need is to collect, manage and integrate a fragmented solution. Meridian will leverage its own product lines, Prolog and Proliance, along with solutions from its parent company, Trimble Navigation, as well as those from sister divisions in the Trimble family to offer a holistic solution. Perhaps the most important of these sister products is Building Information Modeling (BIM) from recently acquired Tekla Systems.
