But managing to achieve this accolade four consecutive years in a row is testament to a business that is clearly focussed on growth through its customer centric approach, not only helping clients achieve their own successes, but also assisting them to maximise the return on their Autodesk software investments.
Says Steve Houlder, Graitec COO: We were delighted to achieve a Platinum Award for the third-time last year. Being able to achieve our goal for a fourth consecutive year however is huge honour, and one that not only reinforces the chosen path for our strategic growth initiative, but also demonstrates the strength and depth of experience of all the Graitec teams across EMEA who’s commitment, professionalism and focus have helped make this achievement possible once more.

16th January 2019 – GRAITEC, an international BIM, Fabrication and Design software developer for AEC, and Autodesk® Platinum Partner across Europe, is delighted to announce the acquisition of Opentree, a U.K based company that provides EDM solutions for the management of the entire document lifecycle of projects, and conforms to BIM standards and BS1192 workflows
At a time when there is increasing industry complexity especially around BIM projects and delivery, the need to effectively manage internal W.I.P (Work in progress) project documentation from the outset is becoming increasingly important across all AEC sectors.
Practices and businesses with a further requirement to publish project data externally to a hosted environment are then often faced with the challenge of interfacing with multiple CDE (Common Data Environment) vendors , as the choice for construction and manufacturing professionals is vast, but with Opentree you can effectively manage all of your internal documentation and model information locally throughout the project lifecycle and then publish to the CDE of your (or the principal contractors) choice as and when a particular project dictates.
Francis Guillemard, GRAITEC President comments: “With Graitec’s recent acquisitions, coupled to the fact that we are an extremely large Autodesk partner, and a software developer in the BIM area. Our solutions in the BIM arena provide many ’000,000’s of models, documents and ancillary information, this acquisition will be pivotal in helping our customers with the day to day management of their project documentation from initial conception and tender, through to project delivery!
Andrew Frank, OPENTREE Managing Director comments: “By joining Opentree and Graitec, our customers will further benefit from being owned by a company with a long history in design & collaboration, who have the skills and expertise to push Opentree even further into the market of W.I.P management, We see this a key strategy for all customers to manage this process better than they do today.
Steve Houlder, GRAITEC COO comments: “The BIM market and the BIM for Manufacturing market is growing at a rapid rate in many countries. One of the major difficulties faced by our customers at all levels from housing development through to capital projects, is the management of data from project conception to the start of the collaboration phase, ensuring data consistency and adherence to standards being one of the most important topics. With Opentree we can address this growing issue for many of our customers, aligning, Graitec and Autodesk technologies.
Graitec will now offer Data Management and W.I.P management to all our customers who have been trying to solve the problem by various means for a long time. By helping customers to adhere to data standards, deliver consistency, conform to both BS1192 and the upcoming ISO19650 BIM standards, Graitec are at the forefront of helping customers manage their data and projects effectively enabling them to achieve time and cost savings, as well as improving internal and external data quality processes.

The company was established in 1992 as tsaADVET Ltd selling networked PC based CAD solutions from Intergraph, Bentley and Autodesk. The focus was on large engineering companies who had hundreds of thousands of drawings to control across very large facilities. We introduced a third party Electronic Document Management Software (EDMS) system (Falcon/DMS) which we sold and supported to enable the tight management of the CAD data. This included management of CAD Reference/XRef files which are vital to ensure data integrity of the drawings.
As the business continued to grow, we soon realised that the EDMS product was not meeting all of our customers’ needs. So in 2000, we developed our own EDMS, CAB-i-NET (now Cabinet).
Since it was first adopted by Tata Steel (formerly British Steel) and Siemens (formerly Westinghouse Rail Systems) in 2003, we’ve never looked back. Thanks to our partnership approach with various multinational blue chip companies, Cabinet evolved to manage all forms of office documents as well as CAD drawings.
Following a decade of success, a management buyout enabled the company to strategically plan for its future growth. This resulted in the opening of a dedicated development office in Sheffield, followed by a complete rebrand to Opentree in 2014.
