BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a method for enabling better cooperation in the construction process. BIM allows the design, construction work and management of building works to be improved, thus reducing failure costs. Every construction party specifies its product according to a standard model. All the information is shared via a digital building model. This 3D model is updated continuously. So everyone has complete, recent and uniform information.
.rvt- versus .ifc
Our BIM library contains BIM specifications (in .rvt format) for all Faay wall systems.
Faay has always tried to make building as easy – and therefore as faultless – as possible. The BIM developments link up perfectly with Faay’s vision. That is why, in recent months, Faay has worked hard on generating BIM specifications (in .rvt format) for the entire wall range, featuring all our walls, their details and all the possible variants. In the near future, our BIM library is going to be expanded to include the BIM specifications of all other Faay products.
BIM has many additional advantages.
- BIM automatically calculates how many Faay wall panels you need as soon as you have entered the walls in the model.
- BIM can also produce two and three-dimensional work drawings (which now often have to be produced manually in Auto-CAD).
- Soon you will be able to link all the BIM specifications of Faay products to ‘wall through’ films on your tablet, enabling your client to immediately get a complete picture of the final result.
- In future Faay will also link all its BIM specifications to STABU specifications.
- BIM makes working internationally quite a bit easier since all BIM specifications are in English. Convenient for our customers located all over the world.
With BIM, every construction party specifies all its products according to a standard model. The construction parties involved in the project then share all these product details with each other in one digital, three-dimensional building model. This virtual model is updated continuously. So all the construction parties involved in the project have complete, recent and uniform information 24/7. BIM automatically detects bottlenecks in the preliminary process already – before building work even begins. This prevents a lot of errors, wasted time, duplicate work and therefore failure costs. BIM is already required for government contracts. In the long term, BIM is expected to be used for all major construction projects.
