Drainage Manufacturer Embraces the BIM Revolution

Harmer Drainage has reinforced its commitment to providing the best products and services to the market with the introduction of Level 2 Building Information Modelling (BIM) content for its industry-leading SML range.

Alumasc’s Harmer SML cast iron soil and waste pipework system range is now BIM Level 2 compliant, with 3D BIM data objects now available via the Harmer Drainage website.

In addition to the SML range, Harmer’s floor and roof drainage products currently offer BIM Level 1 compliance, offering full BIM compatibility when the 2D and 3D images and support documentation are combined. These ranges will be upgraded to Level 2 compliance by 2016.

Talking about the introduction of BIM content, Chris Lister, Business Development Manager at Alumasc, said: “Our BIM content offering responds directly to the Government requirement that all companies tendering for Government work shall be BIM Level 2 compliant by 2016. We’ve also listened carefully to our architectural and engineering customers who’ve told us of their need for solutions which make their computer-led designs more robust.

“By introducing BIM objects, Harmer Drainage has secured its consideration for future Government project work and set the ball rolling towards building our own digital product library online.”

BIM offers the construction industry the opportunity to bring together all components of a building’s design in one place through digital modelling. BIM data can be used to illustrate the entire building life-cycle and, by integrating different aspects of the design more effectively, reduces the risks of mistakes and discrepancies during specification.

The Harmer SML range is a lightweight cast iron pipework system at the cutting edge of cast iron technology. Manufactured in Germany to meet the highest quality and performance standards, Harmer SML also carries British Board Agrément Certification, 05/4191. The pipes and fittings meet the European Standard BS EN 877, further assured by CE Marking, showing full compliance with EU manufacturing, testing and technical performance requirements.

SML has also secured British Standard Kitemark certification, this further confirms the products are manufactured in accordance with EN877:1999 +A1:2006 and quality controlled under ISO9001:2008. The British Standards Institute who issue the award carry out rigorous checks to ensure that products are worthy of the BS Kitemark Stamp.
