What motivated Zigurat to collaborate with the BIM&CO platform?
What most attracted us to the BIM&Co platform was its global identity and collaborative approach, two aspects that are fundamental to the promotion and dissemination of BIM at an international level.
The platform offers multiple services to its users, but what we value most at Zigurat is being able to share objectives and resources at a global level.
