Catenda has been selected as the only Norwegian startup to participate at the grand technology festival The Next Web (TNW) in Amsterdam 26-27 May.
The Next Web attracts more than 10 000 participants and over 3000 companies from around the world. This year´s festival is the 11th in a row. It gathers the world´s technology leaders, venture capitalists and entrepenours, providing a meeting place to initiate new collaborations and together bring the global technology development further into the future.
– We get to meet investors and technology leaders, and demonstrate how building processes can become much more efficient, by eliminating errors virtually, not on-site. Being selected as the only Norwegian startup energizes the entire team. Our strength is that our product, bimsync®, has been tested in the field for some time. We hope that makes us stand out from other startups we will be meeting in Amsterdam, says Håvard Bell, CEO of Catenda.
When you take part as a startup at TNW, you get to pitch your product to around 200 investors. Then they select who they want to get to know better. The pitching process continues, and towards the end of the festival, the startups with the best reviews get to present themselves on the main stage in front of all the participants.

Catenda has been actively participating in the development of BCF 2.0 as well as the BCF API and supports both BCF 1.0 and BCF 2.0 in our bimsync platform. We are convinced that BCF will play an essential role in BIM projects to seamlessly handle issues across discipline and software. Still there are challenges to overcome in file base BCF exchange between software as well as agreements to be made about how to implement the BCF API. Catenda therefore welcomes the initiative for a BCF hackathon in Helsinki and will send our BCF expert programmer to the meeting.
Oslo, 17 December 2014 – Catenda has signed an exclusivity agreement with the Dutch company Ibis for supplying bimsync to the Dutch market. bimsync is a web application as well as an open API, for visualizing, analysing, sharing and managing IFC-based Building Information Models (BIM). As part of the collaboration, Ibis will also integrate Ibis’ own calculation software with bimsync. This integration functionality will be presented at the Dutch construction gathering “Bouwbeurs 2015.”
Catenda has started cooperating with Ibis in order to respond to future demand of customers to be able to calculate based on 3D building models. Bimsync allows you to integrate several models, to visualize and review them, as well as to discover any possible clashes. Furthermore, these models can be enriched with additional information. “A major advantage of bimsync is the fact that this software can be used with a web browser everywhere and at any time”, says Jeroen van den Burg, Product Development manager at Ibis. “It’s based on the open IFC standard, which is also increasingly applied in the Dutch market. By integrating bimsync with IBIS-TRAD, we can provide customers with better solutions.”
Since mid 2013, Ibis is the new name for Brink Automatisering and KPD Automatisering – two companies that for the past 40 years have been supplying software and services for the construction sector and civil engineering. Its product range consists of all the required software and supportive services for estimating, budgeting, specifying, calculating, inspecting, planning, long-term maintenance, project management and real estate management. Part of this can also be used on mobile devices and via the cloud. More information can be found on www.ibis.nl.
