Gehry Technologies

Founded in 2002, Gehry Technologies, a consulting and development firm of 80 people, provides a suite of products and services tailored to the architecture, engineering and construction industry. Based on the experience of the Frank Gehry R&D team and high end technologies from Dassault Systèmes, Gehry Technologies applies advanced digital technologies to complex building projects and supports its clients in their transition from a drafting and paper-driven approach to digitallyenabled design and construction methods and processes.

The Challenge

Gehry Technologies combined PLM’s 3D design and data management capabilities with project experience gained while using Dassault Systèmes’ 3D solutions over the years to create Digital Project, a CATIA-based building information modeling (BIM) system. A platform that includes Dassault Systèmes solutions as well as dedicated software developed by Gehry Technologies, Digital Project generates a single digital model that can be accessed and modified by all teams participating in the same building project.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Convincing the AEC industry to adopt 3D digitalbased technology has not always been easy for Gehry Technologies. Edoardo Luzzatto-Giuliani, Director, Europe Gehry Technologies Inc explains, “We faced many challenges in the past as we applied, to the architecture and construction industry, technology that had been traditionally developed and reserved for the automotive, aerospace and consumer goods industries.
