BIM is popular with architects, contractors and other specifiers, used during the planning and design phase of projects to create a digital representation of the building alongside detailed technical information, accreditations and background data.
Designed to help professionals utilise Cembrit products in their designs, the new service is the first part of a multi-stage process that will see the whole Cembrit product portfolio available as BIM objects.
At present, Cembrits Glendyne and Alpina natural slate ranges are available as BIM objects – in addition to its Cembonit, Metro, Zenit and True ranges of rainscreen cladding boards.
We are trying to facilitate the use of natural slates for publicly funded contracts and are pleased to be leading the natural slate industry in promoting this traditional yet sustainable material, says Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager at Cembrit.
With the creation of our BIM façade objects we are providing a choice for those involved with fibre cement rainscreen cladding specifications.
Cembrits BIM objects for natural slate and façades contain detailed dimensions, product specifications and other key details, along with high quality 3D images to add into virtual model and simulated building designs.
Hosted on the NBS National BIM Library, Cembrits objects are compatible with both Revit and IFC software versions, and are available to be downloaded to integrate into any BIM software.
