BIM IQ® exclusively from Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope BIM vs. BIM IQ

I'm still trying to figure out exactly what this is.  I don't think their BIM vs BIM IQ comparison chart is completely accurate.  Also, are they selling a service, software, engineering or what?

It looks like a mashup of a bunch of things we already have.  Very odd indeed.

BIM IQ® exclusively from Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope BIM vs. BIM IQ

The building envelope company. While other manufacturers are jumping on the building envelope bandwagon, we are once again redefining it. And we’ve more than put our money where our mouth is with significant investments in revolutionary products, ground-breaking BIM technologies and better ways to close a building’s envelope. But we haven’t stopped there—only Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™ partnered with Columbia University’s School of Architecture to create a think-tank of visionaries in the fields of architecture, engineering, construction and technology. Their sole purpose? To study the construction process and recommend ways to make it more efficient. Like an envelope made from a single piece of paper, we approach the building envelope the same way. The future of building envelopes is here.

Feel free to go to the 1:30 mark to skip the history of the world.
