BIM consultancy Digital Node has been acquired by engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon.
Digital Node was founded in 2014 as a BIM and digital engineering consultancy and training provider for the construction industry. It works with clients on major projects in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the UK and North America.
Aurecon says this is the latest step towards the digitisation of its engineering and advisory practices, with a focus on BIM and digital engineering strategy and delivery.
Aurecon chief digital officer Dr Andrew Maher said: “Data and information management are a crucial part of the digitally enabled services our clients are demanding, and Digital Node is at the forefront of best practice on digital standards. Together, we will be able to help organisations and governments across the world develop and deliver their digital communications strategies by transforming infrastructure, impacting the design and performance of asset portfolios.”
Digital Node director and founder Rebecca De Cicco (pictured above) added: “It is now universally recognised that BIM and the process of digital information management are fundamental to the performance of construction and infrastructure projects. Embedding digital ways of working and driving digital literacy across the workforce of the future is essential. Aurecon shares Digital Node’s passion for universal adoption and implementation of BIM and this makes them the perfect fit for us to align with.”
