Trelligence Announces the Addition of COBie2 Compliance to its Suite of Data Translation Capabilities

 


Houston, TX, USA (March 22, 2011) – Trelligence, Inc. announced that its industry-leading architectural programming and design tool, Trelligence Affinity™, is now fully compliant with the latest version of the COBie2 specifications.  COBIE (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) is a set of IFC-based open standards created to facilitate the exchange of data between diverse applications along the architectural plan-design-build-operate continuum.  The development of the IFC (Industry Foundations Classes) has been a major effort of the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability) for a number of years.  With the addition of the ability to import, export, and store data in the COBie2 format, Affinity continues to expand its functionality as a data translation and aggregation tool for the AEC industry.

Affinity has long set the standard as a software tool for performing all the steps of the architectural programming and schematic design process.  In addition, Affinity is increasingly being recognized for its ability to provide repository and data translation capability across the entire architectural process, from beginning to end.

Key Formats Supported by Affinity

 

COBie2                                                 IFC

“From its inception, Trelligence took a broad view of the architectural process,” said Larry Ciscon, Trelligence President.  “In addition to covering the tasks of a wide swath of the process directly with our software, we have also maintained a dedication to handling all the key data formats that are used in the industry.  We are now finding that companies want Affinity, not just for its capabilities as a programming and design tool in its own right, but also as a means of translating and maintaining information throughout the lifecycle of the project, from planning down through facilities management – Affinity is often being used as the common link between the diverse tools in use in this industry.  Our COBie2 compliance is a continuation of that strength.  To my knowledge, Trelligence is the first software in the industry to fully support the latest COBie2 specifications.”

The COBie2 functionality is available in the latest release of Affinity, version 6.1.7.
