Building information modelling: tools and information for construction projects
Building information modelling enables computer-aided, integrated planning, implementation and management of construction projects. The interdisciplinary standard offers architects, building technicians and property developers access to all product-specific data throughout the project. Hansgrohe also supplies BIM data for key software applications. This includes the geometry, positioning, materials and properties of the taps, showers, shower systems and installation technology.
The BIM models are available in the LOD 300 level of detail and in six key formats: Revit, ArchiCAD, AutoCAD, SketchUp, IFC and 3DS.
BIM data is available for several specific AXOR and hansgrohe products on the relevant product pages. More and more BIM data is being added and updated for new and existing products in the range.
Benefits of using BIM data:
More project and budget security: Planning with BIM data ensures transparency throughout the project cycle. Virtual project planning enables all expectations and specifications to be checked before the construction process begins. Changes can be simulated on the virtual model and, in so doing, be implemented more efficiently.
Significant time and cost savings: The integrative process with consistent use of BIM data from everybody involved makes communication easier and saves time and money throughout the building’s entire life cycle. Coordinated project planning leads to faster completion, while better data quality enables accurate building planning and forms the basis for efficient building management.
