Our Company & Vision
Why we do, what we do
BIMstop (and our parent company Barrington Arch founded in 2007) believe in challenging the norm to bring better efficiency to the architectural, engineering and construction industry (AEC). We do this by applying the latest technologies to the problems faced by the industry in order to find better ways that bring value to everybody involved.
With the invention of new BIM (Building Information Modeling) systems our goal is to help speed up the flow of information from building product manufacturers to architects, we believe resulting in better efficiencies across the whole industry - and of course better and smarter buildings!
1. Be open
We achieve this by being one of the only companies globally that fully supports BIM, not just a particular piece of software. We pride ourselves on being the only company to support BIM content production in a variety of formats (Revit, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks and Bentley). BIM is a process and at its core it is a collaboration tool, this is why we choose to support BIM in all formats. We provide a community and network where users can view manufacturers specifications and share their content within the industry.
2. Provide a service in the global arena (or market)
The BIMstop platform and BIM content is currently used by clients in over 96 countries every month (statistic from October 2011). Including, but not limited to; USA, Europe, Japan, UAE, Australia and New Zealand.
This gives us a global feel for the architectural and building industries as a whole. Allowing us to better apply new solutions and keeping us on the cutting edge of building technology. We currently have offices in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. We also have partnerships with companies in the United Kingdom, Germany, UAE, South Africa, Canada and Japan.
So no matter where you are we can help.
3. Our clients are our partners
We see our clients as partners. We know you have long term goals for your company and so do we. By working closely together with our clients to form a lasting relationship, we are able to extract greater value from what we do. We also help to encourage networking between our clients, often resulting in powerful industry synergies being born.
4. We are constantly improving
We are all in a fast changing industry and a fast changing world. That's why we constantly invest in R&D to refine our approach. Not only that, we supply a huge range of great resources and guides to help educate the industry and allow companies to extract greater value from their investments.
A brief history
Barrington Arch (and later BIMstop) was founded in 2007 by Scott Barrington and grew out of a need. Whilst studying architecture, Scott was frustrated with the lack of well built manufacturers specific 3d models to use within his design's plans and documentation. From there the entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and Barrington Arch was born with a purpose.
Since then BIMstop and Barrington Arch have set out to change this and has grown to be globally recognised for its BIM content distribution & development, across a range of CAD/BIM formats (Including Revit, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks and Sketchup).
BIMstop now provides the only complete 'start to finish' solution for building product manufacturers, looking to achieve high specifications of their products, thus increasing their sales.
BIMstop (and parent company Barrington Architecture and Design Ltd) has received funding from PowerHouse Ventures Ltd. For enquires relating to this please contact us.
