Asite, the world’s leading data platform for the built environment, has announced the acquisition of 3D Repo, a pioneer in cloud-based Building Information Modelling (BIM) collaboration software.

The combination brings together two innovative companies with complementary technologies and expertise, with the aim of driving digitisation in construction to new heights.

The acquisition of 3D Repo strengthens Asite’s position as a leader in the digital engineering market, providing customers with advanced tools to manage the entire construction lifecycle.

Asite’s platform already includes a range of solutions for project management, supply chain management, and data management for assets, and the addition of 3D Repo’s innovative technology will enhance and strengthen these capabilities further.

“We are delighted to welcome 3D Repo to the Asite family. The acquisition of 3D Repo is a strategic move that aligns with our commitment to provide cutting-edge solutions for the construction industry. Their innovative technology, combined with our existing solutions, will enable us to offer customers even more powerful and effective digital engineering tools. We are excited about the opportunities that this acquisition will bring,” said Nathan Doughty, CEO of Asite

Dr Jozef Doboš, CEO of 3D Repo added: “Asite shares our vision for the future of digital engineering. We are excited to join forces and bring our expertise in cloud-based collaboration and BIM to Asite’s platform. Together, we will provide a holistic information management platform that will provide customers with even more advanced solutions for managing their construction projects and help drive digitisation in construction to the next level.”

3D Repo is best known for its visualisation, safety and data validation tools in the cloud, which are used on construction and infrastructure projects worldwide. The cloud-based platform enables real-time collaboration in a central hub for all stakeholders, improving the quality and efficiency of construction projects.

The acquisition of 3D Repo is part of Asite’s ongoing expansion strategy and underscores its commitment to innovation and technology in the construction industry. The goal is to provide customers with comprehensive and integrated digital engineering solutions. Asite will continue to invest in the development of its platform and in the growth of its global customer base.

Marina Santilli, Associate Director (Physical Sciences & Engineering), UCLB said: “Congratulations on a great outcome for Dr Jozef Dobos and the 3D Repo team who have been acquired by Asite, a leader in digital tools for project and asset management in the construction industry. This is a perfect new home for the 3D Repo product suite that evolved from the original research of Dr Dobos when he was completing his Engineering Doctorate in UCL’s Computer Science Department and which is in use by some of the world’s largest construction companies.”
