BIM Objects

Senior are BIM Compliant

The Government now requires all Public Sector procured building and infrastructure projects to be delivered using the BIM (Building Information Modelling) process. BIM objects for our full range of window, door and curtain walling systems are available and you will soon be able to download them from this site in a variety of formats.

Please register here to make sure you can download our BIM objects from the website as soon as they are available.

In the meantime. please contact your local Architectural Advisor to request a BIM object. Alternatively, some of our BIM objects are available via the National BIM Library.

Our library of BIM objects will be regularly updated as we continue to develop innovative new products.

Want to know more?

BIM is a relatively new concept, so to help you find your way around the process, we have produced a list of frequently asked questions. Simple click on a question below to find out more…


What is BIM?

BIM stands for Building Information Modelling and is a way of working which allows everyone to understand a building through the creation of an intelligent 3D digital model. It brings together all of the information about every component of a building, in one place allowing design, visualisation simulation and collaboration.

How does it work?

BIM will change the way that buildings, infrastructure and utilities are planned, designed, built and managed throughout their lifetime. It is a collaborative approach where architects, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and clients are required to work from ONE model with ONE process and ONE data source.

Why has it been introduced?

The whole BIM process has been implemented primarily to save 20% on Public Sector Construction costs. The Government spends billions of pounds on construction every year and simply require value for money. Through extensive research it has been proved that creating a collaborative approach to Construction will benefit all parties involved.

What are the benefits of using BIM?

We believe that BIM is what the industry has craved for years and hopefully by eliminating invariably inaccurate, ambiguous and incomplete information, it will reduce the risk of mistakes and discrepancies, benefitting all parties involved. Over time frustration, inefficiency, abortive works and reduced earning potential should reduce significantly and it should become easier to achieve project and business goals.

What are the Government Requirements for BIM?

The Government now requires all centrally procured Government projects to be delivered using fully collaborative 3D BIM, with all project and asset information, documentation and data being digital.

What are BIM objects?

A BIM object for any product contains digital information on a number of things including:

  • Properties of the product e.g. thermal performance or weather rating
  • The physical characteristics of the product in geometric form
  • Visualisation data to give the product a recognisable appearance
  • Functional data, such as detection zones, that enables the object to be positioned and behave in the same manner as the product itself.

Where can I obtain BIM objects?

Free BIM objects can be downloaded from the NBS National BIM Library. Some companies also make BIM objects available via their website. Senior will soon be making free BIM for all our products, objects in a variety of formats, available from this website. Please register now to gain access to all our BIM objects as soon as they are available
