In conjunction with NBS (part of RIBA Enterprises Ltd) Selectaglaze has recently launched a comprehensive range of BIM models for their secondary glazing, which will appeal to those Architects and end users whose projects are designed with component and layered objects. BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a system that can quickly create a 3D representation of a construction project.
The objects can be found on the RIBA National BIM Library which is a free online resource consisting of generic and proprietary BIM objects such as windows, doors, cladding, roofs in IFC (Industry Foundation Class) format and available for use in Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks and Teckla. With over 50,000 users registered to the library, BIM has already had a massive impact on how construction projects are delivered both in the UK and worldwide and the influence of BIM methodologies and 3D modelling will continue to grow.
Selectaglaze is at the forefront with its technical literature. The company’s recently updated Product and Performance Guide is now available – free upon request. Copies can be obtained from the Selectaglaze Marketing Department on 01727 837271, or via the website.
