Brett Landscaping has listed a range of its hard landscaping products on the National BIM Library, an online resource of thousands of building products that have been BIM registered.
BIM enables architects to make more definitive specifications whilst also ensuring compliance with standards. Manufacturer data is included with each BIM object allowing for easy performance comparison before specifying.
BIM also provides users with a better idea of what the final design will look like and how it should perform, preventing future problems and reducing potential conflict in the construction process.
BIM is also compatible with RIBA’s Plan of Works. The RIBA Plan of Works makes sure that all parties involved in a project are working to the same process, again helping to mitigate any future conflict.
Andrew Gill, marketing manager at Brett Landscaping, commented on Brett Landscaping’s early adoption of BIM, which is now mandatory for all products sourced for Government projects. He said:
“Building Information Modelling is definitely the long-term future of construction, being the default design environment for many new architectural university graduates, and as such it is imperative the industry is prepared. It is already mandatory that all products sourced for Government projects should be to BIM Level 2 and we are now starting to see BIM filter down to private sector projects.
Brett is renowned for innovation and remaining at the forefront of industry developments – being part of the BIM revolution is another example of this. By having our products included in the National BIM Library we are providing our customers – whether that is an architect sourcing the products, a contractor using them, a merchant selling them, or the facilities management team managing the infrastructure – with the products they need to succeed within this highly competitive market.”
