  1. ACCA software is founded

    The first solutions developed for MAC OS and MS-DOS in a technical office for engineers, architects and surveyors. Software born from expertise and tested during daily work activities and needs. Since the very beginning, ACCA has been developing software created by experts of the building and construction fields… With COMET (the first version of the software which then evolved into PriMus) production and commercialization of the first Bill of Quantities and Cost Estimating software began.

  2. The birth of PriMus: and nothing was the same

    ACCA software launches PriMus for MS-DOS, the Bill of Quantitis and Cost Estimating software. The name PriMus, was chosen because it was the company’s first software and a wish for it to become a N.1 product in a still emerging market. ACCA now produces over 90 software solutions for the construction industry and PriMus is still an industry leader: a well chosen name!

  3. PriMus-Win, the first Bill of Quantities and Cost Estimating software running under Windows

    PriMus-Win was presented in Milan as the first BoQ and Cost Estimating software compatible with the for the Microsoft Windows operating system. The software was the only Italian product to be selected for the SMAU Industrial Design Award. It was probably the first Italian product (commercial) to be developed for the Windows platform. In 1995 ACCA received 1st Prize for PriMus at the Windows competition for Italy, as the best application developed for the Windows OS environment for a great company.

  4. ACCA launches TerMus

    ACCA is expanding its range year after year. In 1996 TerMus, the ACCA software for calculating and verifying the energy efficiency of buildings was launched. TerMus really was a revolutionary software, the first B.I.M. software (Building information Modeling) that addressed thermal engineering, anticipating about 15 years before others, such important design aspects that have only now become actual for others.

  5. It’s the year of CerTus

    Now famous for PriMus – used by most Italian professionals – ACCA continues relentlessly in developing new software applications for the building industry. 1998 is the year of Certus, the software for addressing the important Health and Safety issues in construction sites.

  6. Before everyone else even on the internet

    The first issue, number zero, of BibLus-net, the on-line information service and into-depth technical pubblication for the building industry professional, was released. In just a few years, it became a reference point for Italian technicians. 2003 also saw the birth of Prezzari-net, the most comprehensive on-line database of nationwide pricebooks for the building sectors which now goes proud of its over 20 million priced items for the Italian and international markets.

  7. A revolution for structural engineering and calculations too

    ACCA releases EdiLus, the first Italian BIM software for structural engineering and calculations. Advanced model input using 3D objects, the integrated FEM solver, the graphical visualization of calculation results: a true revolution for the calculation of structures.

  8. PriMus Revolution

    ACCA completely revolutionizes its flagship product with a unique initiative. The new PriMus Revolution gets a re-styled interface born from shared testing with over 15,000 PriMus clients and chosen among the most professional users of the software.

  9. ACCA crosses its national borders

    ACCA launches PriMus-DCF on the world market for the first time, the bill of quantities and cost estimating freeware. Within a few years, the software is downloaded by more than 300,000 users. PriMus-DCF is available in English, French, Spanish, German and Portuguese

  10. The Architectural BIM Design adventure begins

    ACCA unveils Edificius, the BIM software for Architectural Design that integrates architecture and engineering, at the at SAIE Building Exhibition in Bologna.

  11. Internationalization: new achievements and great successes

    After the online launch of PriMus-DCF, ACCA participates in some of the most prestigious international trade exhibitions ACCA is present at Ecobuild (London) and Feicon (San Paolo). New collaborations and partnerships start in Brazil, Poland, Cuba, France. ACCA’s software solutions – Edificius, PriMus and EdiLus in particular – are soon very appreciated for teaching in schools and universities.
