ASSA ABLOY Project Specification Group’s BIM-enabled Openings Studio™ drives efficiencies for architects and specifiers

  • 17 Dec 2019

BIM is changing the building landscape, bringing with it improvements in design, specification, delivery and asset management. According to NBS’ National BIM Report 2019, BIM adoption has grown from little over 10% in 2011 to around 70% in 2019; when it comes to doorsets and ironmongery in particular, using tools such as Openings Studio™ from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland Project Specification Group can truly unlock the potential of BIM.

The software, suitable for all building projects and applications, provides product information and performance data to comply with budgets and ensure building regulations are adhered to, while 3D views guarantee full design integration.

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

Having one easily accessible source allows users to update relevant information automatically, with no need to manually input each specification, saving both time and money.

Eric Spooner, BIM Manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, commented: “With more than 8,000 architects already using Openings Studio around the world, our BIM-enabled specification software is already adding incredible value to our user’s projects.

“Our tools give our partners more time to focus on what they do best, creating high quality, sustainable buildings, more efficiently and cost effectively.

“Openings Studio has been designed to help minimise costs and streamline the data sharing process throughout the entire project lifecycle, by acting as a collaborative tool for all project stakeholders involved – from the initial design, 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.

Data is available in multiple formats to ensure easy collaboration with all stakeholders, and Openings Studio supports popular BIM tools such as Autodesk® Revit.

Project Specification Group can support customers at every stage, from design and specification, to installation and ongoing maintenance.

With such a wide range of capabilities, the Group’s Project Design Consultants can source and supply all door and ironmongery requirements, seeing a project through from start to finish.
