Munich-based Thinkproject, a leading cloud-based Common Data Environment provider for construction and engineering projects, acquired 100% of the German BIM specialist ceapoint aec technologies GmbH. ceapoint’s product line DESITE will be positioned as an integrated and open solution within the Thinkproject portfolio, and its cloud functionality will be expanded and distributed internationally in future.
With its product line DESITE, the Essen-based ceapoint has offered solutions for BIM since 2010. ceapoint is specialised in BIM management and BIM coordination and has supported its customers in implementing and using BIM in planning offices, construction companies and with clients.

Further, DESITE is the BIM technology for the BRZ Group, the European specialist for organisation and information technology for medium-sized companies in the construction sector.
Thinkproject and DESITE are highly complementary BIM solutions and provide perfect cross-selling potential for international distribution. With DESITE, additional BIM functionality such as collision check, model check, 4D simulation and analysis for users will become available in the CDEs Thinkproject and EPLASS.
“With DESITE we can make our solutions for BIM Collaboration even more powerful. Plus, we gain an experienced and competent team of BIM specialists within our group. We will become an even stronger partner for our customers in the increasing digitalisation of the construction sector” says Thomas Bachmaier, Thinkproject founder.
Dr. Jochen Hanff, CEO ceapoint adds: “we are now part of the European-wide Thinkproject group and therefore have a stronger position in the dynamic BIM market. We want to take this as an opportunity to expand our product line DESITE, and especially expand our cloud functionality and for its international distribution.”
