With use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) increasing across the UK’s construction sectors, Eurocell has introduced its BIM Centre, an online tool dedicated to quick and easy BIM model specification.
An industry-wide investment in BIM has been encouraged by the UK Government. In 2011, it stated that central government departments should require BIM Level 2 on all of its products, from April 2017 onwards. Funding to push onto Level 3 is currently ongoing.
A BIM model is a 3D replica of a building product, with information attached to its various parts. By implementing it in building design processes, organisations can develop a better understanding of the lifetime cost and performance of the asset, and its different elements.
Therefore, BIM can enable better decision-making, and deliver better long-term value.
Developed to make BIM model specification as simple as possible, the BIM Centre offers a growing number of models, covering Eurocell’s Modus and Eurologik ranges, in RFA and Revit Family format. Autodesk Revit software is required.
After signing up, users can use Eurocell’s new search and filter tool to browse its BIM model library and source the product that they need. All models can be downloaded as the end of the session, eliminating the time-consuming process of downloading one at a time.
Once downloaded, the models will be stored in the user’s personalised BIM Library for easy access at a later date.
Updates are delivered automatically via email, to ensure that users have access to the latest information: for example, they are informed when models have been updated or amended.
Eurocell’s ‘Request a BIM’ function enables users to submit queries to the company’s support team, who are equipped to provide technical advice, and help users to search for the models they need.
