ASSA ABLOY Project Specification Group unlocks BIM potential for architects and specifiers with Openings Studio™

  • 20 Nov 2020

When it comes to doorsets and ironmongery, using applications such as Openings Studio™, from ASSA ABLOY Project Specification Group, can truly unlock the potential of BIM.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is rapidly changing the way we build. Providing architecture, engineering and construction sectors with the tools they need for more efficient planning, design and building processes.

In 2011, NBS published its first National BIM report, revealing that only 13% of respondents were aware of and using BIM in their practices, while almost half were not aware of the term ‘BIM’ at all.

This year’s report saw that percentage rise to 73%, evidence that the process has grown rapidly and earned universal recognition in the nine years between the two reports.

The software application, suitable for all building projects, integrates with commonly used design platforms and enables project design teams to seamlessly develop complete door requirements.

Product information, performance data and budget information can be easily developed within the BIM design environment.

Through real time, collaborative working with ASSA ABLOY, these designs can be validated for compliance, functional performance, aesthetics and presented as 3D views that can be fully integrated with the overall project design.

By acting as a collaborative tool for all project stakeholders, Openings Studio has been designed to help minimise costs and streamline the data sharing process throughout the entire project lifecycle – from the initial design, right through to construction, delivery, asset management and beyond.

Those using Openings Studio can also create Virtual Design Guides, which essentially serve as a library of typical openings, that architects can then use when designing buildings.

Not only this, but data is available in multiple formats to ensure easy collaboration with all parties.

For architects and specifiersOpenings Studio can drive efficiencies in creating door and hardware schedules by linking to fire certifications and energy performance documents.

Having this one easily accessible source allows users to update relevant information automatically without having to manually input each specification, saving both time and money.

Paul Thompson, BIM Manager for ASSA ABLOY UK, commented: “Openings Studio is the only software of its kind on the market, and is already being used by thousands of architects and specifiers across the globe.

“The application is designed to ensure our customers can focus their time on the design and creation of a building, and the details that are most important to them.

“With improved user interface and visualisation capabilities, Openings Studio ensures that an architect’s or specifier’s vision is truly captured and translated through each stage.”
