A significant in-kind gift from Trimble will expand the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s leadership in training and research in 3D building design, digital fabrication and the sustainable built environment by establishing the 1,300-square-foot Trimble Technology Lab in the new Design Building at UMass Amherst.

The lab will include equipment such as Trimble’s laser scanners, robotic surveying systems, imaging rovers, GNSS receivers and software including RealWorks, Trimble Business Center, Vico Office Suite, GCEstimator Suite, Tekla Structures, Sefaira Architecture and SketchUp Pro.

The Trimble Technology Lab will tie into existing ‘makerspace’ on campus to encourage experimentation, rapid prototyping, entrepreneurship and fabrication spaces.
