(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar's construction sector is set to reach QR33bn (9.06 bn) by 2012, according to studies conducted by Business Monitor, and with over 800 new towers slated to go up in Doha over the next 10 years, the market has been identified as one of the busiest construction areas in the world.
In line with this, Autodesk, the world leader in 2D and 3D design software for the manufacturing, building, and media and entertainment markets, has named ProMedia as its new value added reseller in Qatar.
At present, ProMedia is undertaking major strides to effectively market Autodesk solutions amidst the country's booming construction sector.
As the Government of Qatar continues to strengthen its sustainable design initiatives in the construction sector, Autodesk and ProMedia are poised to highlight the outstanding features of the new Autodesk Revit solutions and AutoCAD 2009 software to both government agencies and private developers.
Designed for Building Information Modeling (BIM), the Revit solutions are comprised of Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP, which enable testing and analysis of new and better materials, while considerably reducing waste production. Providing efficient conceptual design, drafting and detailing solutions, AutoCAD 2009 facilitates efficiency and productivity by improving the output of veteran users while allowing new users to become prolific more quickly.
"As we seek a stronger presence in the region, we have made a decision to add ProMedia into our pool of resellers," said Manish Bhardwaj, Field Marketing Specialist, Autodesk, Middle East.
"We have confidence in ProMedia's capability to capitalise on the booming market in Qatar. At present, we are gearing up for a massive penetration drive in this market, and we are looking forward to aiding the Qatar Government's initiatives to enforce the implementation of sustainable design solutions for current and future developments."
