Digitalization in the construction industry
Welcome to the new era of digital construction! Digitalization has found its way into the construction industry to facilitate the way we design, build, and operate buildings today. We at Master Builders Solutions have been on the forefront ever since, with many tools that support you along all project phases. In the below linked article you can get an overview of our digital construction systems portfolio, more details on selected tools can be found in the following sections.
BIM – Building Information Modeling
Due to a rapid digitalization, virtual design and construction tools are transforming conventional computer aided design software. BIM data can digitally connect the construction, operation and maintenance of a structure with its design phase, making it possible to create a digital twin of the actual building and physical infrastructures.

As explained above, BIM data facilitate the design phase of a project and are therefore required by architects and designers. But before a project can be started all products and details have to be specified. Master Builders Solutions makes specification very easy with Online Planning Tool (OPT), a digital tool which allows you to create project specifications in only three steps.
