Kingdom Tower to push software design envelope

Kingdom Tower is likely to adopt the latest project info management software from the US.

Kingdom Tower will provide a perfect platform to showcase the latest project information management (PIM) software, says Rob Kirk, business development manager at Newforma Middle East.

Both Kingdom Tower designer Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture and masterplanner HOK have deployed Newforma successfully in the US.

Newforma was established in the US in 2004, and interest in the product from the Middle East resulted in the establishment of a local office in July.

Major US companies with a presence in the Middle East have already deployed this latest software trend locally to boost the construction industry, says Kirk, citing HOK Dubai as an example.

“Atkins has introduced it into its Bahrain office, and is looking to do the same at its Dubai office. Interest has also been expressed as far afield as Kuwait,” says Kirk.

Designed by architects and engineers, Newforma consolidates often disconnected project information into a manageable, and searchable, project database accessible by the entire project team.
