Athens, March 2017 – ACE-Hellas® will participate to The Big 5 International Building and Construction Show, which will take place in Jeddah Centre in Saudi Arabia from March 27-30, 2017. The Big 5 Saudi has become one of the most important construction events for the region and the industry as a whole; a crossroads for construction professionals from across the GCC. ACE-Hellas will present its products at Hall 2, Stand E13.
For more than three decades, The Big 5 has gone from strength to strength, to evolve into the largest, most influential and renowned portfolio of construction industry events spanning the Middle East, India and South East Asia. The Big 5 network now includes more than 300,000 suppliers and buyers of construction products from 120 countries worldwide. The Big 5 is now a global name with editions in the UAE, Kuwait, India, Indonesia, Kuwait, East Africa as well as Saudi Arabia. The list of exhibitors includes companies with software engineering products, MEP services, building interiors and finishes, building and special construction, construction tools and building materials, and smart building and design technologies.
ACE-Hellas will introduce the biggest update ever of its leading structural analysis and design software, SCADA Pro 16™, featuring the most powerful engine to date, ACESFS™, and full support for Saudi Building Code (SBC). Incredible new features, such as integrated advanced flat slab support and bi‑directional communication with SAP2000® and ETABS®, help professional engineers deliver extraordinary projects optimized for speed and accuracy. The new version extends SCADA Pro’s advanced redesign capabilities of existing structures and ads remarkable building rehabilitation and restore options with Sika’s most advanced systems, seamlessly, incorporated in the new interface. Built-in smart automation tools ensure speed in the design and execution of even the most complex projects. Polish language has been added in the multilingual interface bringing the supported languages to five (English, Italian, German, Polish, Greek), including their respective national annexes.
ACE-Hellas will also unveil the first commercial Optimization Computing Platform in the world, ACE OCP™, for cost reduction in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) market. This innovative tool, representing the future of Value Engineering, goes far beyond what was possible with traditional optimization techniques and encompasses state-of-the-art algorithms to automatically optimize any structure in order to reduce construction and/or material cost, by at least 10%, consistent with the required performance, reliability, quality and safety. ACE OCP is available either as a module for SCADA Pro 16 or as a plugin to SAP2000/ETABS.
“Our participation in this year’s The Big 5 Saudi exhibition in Jeddah, strengthens our international growth and increases the market for our powerful products. We believe that the GCC and Saudi Arabia, in particular, represent an important opportunity for innovating companies in the construction industry, not only because of the huge investment in infrastructure and buildings that is taking place there, but also because of the country’s immense influence in the region,” said Dr. Dennis Ioakim, ACE-Hellas founder and chairman.
