Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Trimble Buildings, a part of Trimble's Engineering and Construction segment, is a world leader in technology for construction project optimization across the design-build-operate (DBO) lifecycle. By providing intuitive software and field solutions that span the brands of SketchUp, Tekla, Vico Software, Plancal, Meridian Systems, and WinEst, Trimble is dedicated to helping building owners and AEC service providers improve productivity, increase efficiencies and maximize profitability of construction projects across the entire workflow from simulation to renovation.
In June of 2012, Trimble enhanced its office-to-field platform with the acquisition of Google's SketchUp®, one of the world’s most popular 3D modeling tools. SketchUp is currently used by millions of users annually—ranging from architects to engineering and construction firms to building and design professionals—for designing, modeling and visualizing projects.
Microdesk is a nationally authorized training center for SketchUp, providing essentials and advanced level classroom, online and custom training on Trimble's SketchUp products.
