    Our services have been in continual development since 1988 when at that time our founding company Forssman Ltd based in Hong Kong started using 2D technology to produce drawings.

    The company moved to Manila in 1996 as Forssman Pacific Corporation and within a few years started using 3D technology which then developed into the full Building Information Modeling approach successfully deployed on the City of Dreams (Macau) project.

    In 2010 the company responded to the global recession by focusing on three key business areas and renaming the company Forsspac thereby emphasis the new direction.
