SEMA in Oil-Country

The Wood Solutions Fair is an event hosted and organized by the Canadian Wood Council. It takes place in five provinces of Canada. In Edmonton, AB, architects, engineers, designers, builders, technologists, professors and students took the chance to inform themselves about latest trends, current technical solutions and top-of-the-line timber construction software.

The SEMA Group is recognized as a pioneering software company in timber construction and stair design for more than 33 years and more recently also in sheet metal work, metal roof coverings & flashings and facades.

Participating in the 2017 Wood Solutions Fair in Edmonton, Alberta, SEMA demonstrated the convincing individual options and possibilities of the SEMA software to participants and visitors.

Sharing a booth with ACQBuilt - an innovative customer and probably the most successful pre-fab company in North America - SEMA had the chance to prove its capabilities by means of demonstrations, videos and examples. Many interested visitors took the opportunity to learn more about the advantages of the SEMA software in pre-designing and pre-fabrication. Intensive estimating and work preparation, CAD-CAM and computer aided manufacturing processes are the meat and potatoes of a successful pre-fabrication. Company ACQBuilt is making perfect use of SEMA's long-term experience in these fields and they were very pleased to give interesting insights to the curious visitors.

In addition, the SEMA representatives were able to directly answer the numerous questions from the visitors and pointed out the multitude of possibilities and advantages of this sophisticated timber construction software compared to the usual stick framing process.

The visitors at the SEMA booth consisted of builders and timber framers, members of research and development companies and universities. The support of trend-setting BIM as a holistic planning process in combination with SEMA's long-term experience is definitely an indicator for the successful future of SEMA in North America.
