San Francisco, CA, 12/2/2015 – Ideate Inc., a multi-decade veteran Autodesk Developer Network member and Autodesk Platinum Value Added Reseller (VAR) today announced that it is entering into a partnership with San Francisco-based Modulus Consulting.

Modulus provides BIM guidance, support, and services to building project teams. A long-time industry ally of Ideate Software, Modulus specializes in BIM Consulting, BIM Coordination, Architectural & Structural Modeling, MEPS Systems Modeling, Laser Scanning (LiDAR), and in-sourced BIM support.

Bob Palioca, President of Ideate Inc. and Ideate Software, said, “Our mission for 33 years as a trusted VAR has been about empowering our customers with tools and training so they can make the transition to BIM and succeed. Our new partnership with Modulus will now enable us to offer our clients superior project assistance, broadening our effectiveness. Modulus performs extremely valuable services and I’ve been referring customers to them for years.”

He added, “While Ideate will remain Ideate, and Modulus will remain Modulus, we are confident that we will complement each other in bringing a deep bench of BIM services and solutions to the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) community.”

“Bob is a trusted and respected leader in our industry,” said Peter Michealsen, Managing Principal of Modulus Consulting. “Modulus is excited to bring on a partner with a long history of serving and supporting the technology side of the AEC community in ways that perfectly complement our own services and support. Ideate's expertise in BIM software development, implementation and training, together with Modulus' expertise in BIM production and project support, offer a more complete solution for our clients.”

“Modulus continues to be independent with respect to software; we will not be selling or developing software and we will always use and recommend the tools we think are best for each specific job,” he added.

Staff members from the two companies will gather together at an Ideate Inc.-hosted Customer Appreciation and Holiday Party event at the Autodesk Gallery on December 17th.
