BIM software company Dalux opens Irish office

Dalux, the Danish software company behind leading BIM software for the construction and property industries, has just opened its first Irish office in Dublin.

“Now that we have boots on the ground in Ireland, we can do much more to help our Irish clients grow their business,” says Ireland Country Manager, Dalux, Brendan O’Riordan, who has been handed the keys to the new local office.

Some of Ireland’s largest construction contractors are already using the Dalux software, which aims to simplify the work processes in construction projects and property management. And with a BIM mandate on the way in Ireland next year, digitalising existing work processes is one of the main challenges facing Irish construction companies today, says O’Riordan.

“We have a good market right now, with a high level of employment, and generally a lot of construction going on. And when everyone is running as fast as they can, there are big advantages to be gained by implementing digital tools that can make the work processes just a little bit smarter. That is essentially what Dalux does,” he explains.

What is Dalux?

Dalux is the world’s fastest and most-downloaded BIM Viewer app, which lets you display large and complex 3D models on computers and mobile devices, online and offline, at the office and on-site, and even in augmented reality (AR). In addition, Dalux contains modules to handle documents and design communication, to manage on-site tasks and issues, to carry out safety checks, to document on-site progress, and to maintain and operate buildings and facilities after construction is finished. The Dalux BIM Viewer is used by more than 700 000 people worldwide, and more than 100 000 photos are uploaded to Dalux every day.

The new office location opened earlier this year in the Dún Laoghaire area of Dublin, manned by Country Manager, Brendan O’Riordan, and Customer Success Specialist, William Adams.

Bringing a Danish philosophy to Ireland

Dalux’s software is designed and developed entirely at the company’s global headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark. If you ask the new Irish Country Manager, this means that a certain Nordic philosophy shines through:

“First of all, Dalux is developed with user-friendliness as a core value. But secondly, we spend a lot of our time and effort being present locally and helping our users get the most out of the software. Our competitors mostly don’t do this to the same degree, and I think this is part of the reason why Dalux has been so successful in the Nordics, and recently, in many other parts of the world.”

O’Riordan adds: “I am excited and proud to open this office and be closer to our users in Ireland. But also to show the rest of our country that you can have BIM software that is simple and easy to use, regardless of whether you’re standing on-site in a muddy hole in the howling wind, or in the office getting to grips with the consultant’s latest design changes.”
