With the Government’s 2016 BIM deadline fast approaching, Senior Aluminium Systems is enabling specifiers and installers to stay ahead of the game by making products from its comprehensive range of windows, doors and curtain walling systems available on the NBS National Building Information Modelling (BIM) Library.
The presence of Senior’s products on the National BIM Library means that specifiers can effortlessly add their chosen products directly to their BIM models as BIM objects. By revolutionising the current linear workflow, the BIM process allows numerous people to share the information incorporated in the 3D graphical representation of the model in a way that enables changes to be seen almost immediately by everyone throughout the supply chain. With the use of BIM set to become mandatory on all public sector projects from 2016, Senior has been investing heavily in ensuring that its products are BIM ready well ahead of the deadline.
Amongst the products currently available on the NBS National BIM Library is the new SF52 system, which is fully compatible with Senior’s portfolio of windows and doors and offers visual consistency to achieve a uniformed appearance. The system is capable of holding double or triple glazed units ranging from 24mm to 50mm in thickness via the use of various gaskets and thermal breaks. SF52 has been carefully designed and developed to ensure that high aesthetics are equally matched by consistent and reliable construction quality.
With many specifiers now selecting products online, there is now the increasing urgency of needing manufacturers to provide BIM objects and with this in mind, Senior is committed to expanding its NBS BIM Library presence with the ongoing development of new products and systems.
