Tampere University in Finland Establishes Trimble Technology Lab for the Faculty of the Built Environment
Wednesday, December 8, 2021

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and TAMPERE, Finland, Nov. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on a commitment to cultivate a highly-trained workforce that will drive the innovative solutions of tomorrow, Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and Finland's Tampere University have established a state-of-the-art Technology Lab in Tampere's Faculty of the Built Environment, serving both the departments of Architecture and Civil Engineering.

The Trimble Technology Lab will provide students enrolled in Tampere University's Faculty of the Built Environment hands-on experience with Trimble solutions. Applications of these solutions range from conceptual 3D modeling and design, 3D infrastructure modeling, planning and construction, structural analysis, design and optimization, BIM based scheduling and planning, design management and general use of BIM solutions throughout a building or infrastructure project lifecycle. Partnering with Trimble allows Tampere University to more fully integrate across its curricula the technological tools that are rapidly transforming how the built environment is designed, constructed and managed.

"The state-of-the-art Trimble Technology Lab at Tampere University will be the first of its kind in Finland," said Allyson McDuffie, director of Education & Outreach at Trimble. "This engagement is at the nexus of technology and education in the built environment. By increasing our already strong engagement through establishing a Trimble Technology Lab on campus, we're able to increase access to transformative technologies, ensuring that students are equipped to shape the future sustainable world."

"Partnering with Trimble will significantly strengthen our civil engineering and architecture studies by establishing a Trimble Technology Lab," said Antti Lönnqvist, dean of the Faculty of Built Environment at Tampere University. "Digitalization and the changes it brings are a great opportunity and challenge for the built environment sector. Related research and university education are very important operational areas for us. We want to equip our students with the best possible capabilities regarding modern technology solutions. This includes, in particular, solutions for building construction and the infrastructure with a focus on building and spatial surveying, architectural design, structural design, road and railway engineering, transport systems, geotechnical design and construction project management. In research, we want to be at the forefront, especially with regard to the comprehensive utilization of modern technology solutions in the built environment."

The lab will include a broad range of Trimble's technology including mechanical total stations and advanced software solutions including RealWorks(®) scanning software, Trimble Business Center Infrastructure Construction edition, Quadri, Novapoint, Quantum, Tilos, Tekla(®) Structures, Tekla Structural Designer, Tekla Tedds, Trimble Connect(® )collaboration platform and the company's popular 3D modeling software, SketchUp Pro and SketchUp studio bundle.
