The objects are available in IFC format and in the four main software formats, to make them accessible to pretty much all BIM users whatever software they prefer:
At present the majority of our involvement with BIM is with our main contractor partnerships but we expect this to change, as more architects and other construction professionals take up BIM in the coming years
