The substantial efficiencies and added value from working with a BIM-ready window, door and facade contractor, will be revealed by CMS Window Systems at the Buildings andamp; Energy Efficiency Expo, 10th andamp; 11th November 2015, Manchester Central.
CMS ensure that building projects benefit from consistent BIM expertise throughout the numerous work stages _ reducing the risk of costly errors or contractor delays.
The CMS team is utilising its presence at the Bandamp;EE Expo to give architects, developers and main contractors the opportunity to learn why it is so important that the building envelope contractor is BIM-ready, as well as product manufacturers.
In addition to BIM, CMS will also be highlighting how its range of PVCu, aluminium and timber aluminium composite windows and doors provides highly effective solutions for delivering residential properties which are extremely energy efficient, and future-proofed from the harmful effects of fuel poverty.
Stephen Anderson, Director of the Aluminium Division at CMS: ñWith BIM adoption levels still well below expectations at this point in the BIM timetable, the Bandamp;EE Expo is the ideal platform to help us highlight how BIM skills and technology are in place right along the supply chain _ providing you know where to look. By being BIM-ready, we are providing the vital link between designer and product manufacturer by talking the same language and, more importantly, using our experience in numerous other building envelope projects to advise on where further design and process efficiencies can be achieved.î
