BricsCAD, BIM and Chapoo

The story of BricsCAD and online AEC collaboration is long and complex (BricsCAD… Bricsnet … Bricsys … Vondle – 2007 post … Chapoo – 2012 post), and appears is about to enter a new chapter subtitled “BIM”. Ralph Grabowski‘s CAD business upFront.e-zine reviews the history of BricsCAD’s architectural design software and reports: Last week…, the …

Bricsnet to rebrand to ProjectCenter

After disposing of its US FM operations, Bricsnet is focused on project collaboration and will be consolidating its growing business under the ProjectCenter brand. I was recently asked: “Whatever happened with Bricsnet?” As the question came from a former investor in the European SaaS construction collaboration pioneer,  it was a little surprising. The Bricsnet back …

That Bricsnet embezzlement case – update

The Bricsnet embezzlement case I wrote about in January is nearing resolution. At the time, my understanding of the case was mainly based on some outdated and fairly lurid local reporting in California, but the facts have now been heard in court. An eight-day jury trial – United States of America v. Ethan Farid Jinian …

That Bricsnet embezzlement case….

Embezzlement allegations against former Bricsnet CEO Ethan Farid Jinian will be discussed in a San Francisco court next month. Following an email from a reader, I notice that it’s well over a year since I last wrote about the indictment in California of former Bricsnet CEO Ethan Farid Jinian on embezzlement charges (see November 2009 …

From AsBuilt to Exquando

From time to time, I get asked about non-UK collaboration vendors operating in mainland Europe. I can talk with some knowledge about Munich-based Conject (see The conject interview) and Madrid-based Bricsnet (see The Bricsnet interview), but otherwise I generally struggle. However, a little bit of this information gap has recently been filled with respect to …

The Bricsnet interview

Having been impressed by Bricsnet‘s marketing during the dot.com boom years, I followed developments sporadically (mainly because the ProjectCenter extranet product was not heavily marketed in the UK), and have only mentioned the company in this blog a handful of times over the past four years – most recently last November (posts here and here). …

More on the former Bricsnet CEO embezzlement

Further to my post about the Jinian wire fraud indictment, I’ve just received an email from Cristina Niculescu, head of Bricsnet’s collaboration tool ProjectCenter in Europe, who “to avoid speculation and hear-say rumours” thought it would be useful to put Bricsnet’s position on the subject and the effects it has had on Bricsnet as a …

Former Bricsnet CEO indicted on embezzlement charges

Just over two years ago, I wrote about the latest $13 million fund-raising round by US-based AEC and property solutions vendor Bricsnet. Following a news item on AECcafe.com, I see that Ethan Farid Jinian, the CEO of Bricsnet at the time of that investment, has just been indicted on charges of embezzling $1 million. The …

History of CAD touches on extranets

David Weisberg has published online a comprehensive history of CAD, which is available free at http://www.cadhistory.net. I had a quick skim through a couple of chapters to see what, if anything, he’d written about construction collaboration technologies – and he hasn’t ignored them. Chapter 6 (Autodesk and AutoCAD, PDF), for example, has a page or …
