BIM - FLEXIBILITY IN PLANNING FROM THE CELLAR TO THE ROOF
Already today, Saint-Gobain offers planners and architects powerful BIM files for the planning, of perimeter insulation, waterproofing of buildings, windows and facades, drywall and acoustics, flooring and tiling systems, pitched roofs or top floor ceilings and much more. At the same time, with these BIM solutions planners have access to the comprehensive building expertise of the Saint-Gobain Group. This includes among others the Rigips, Ecophon, Building Glass Europe, Weber and Isover brands. At BAU 2017, Saint-Gobain presented a comprehensive repertoire of applicable BIM solutions for Allplan, ArchiCAD and Revit.
Wizards for Allplan
With the Allplan wizards, new, powerful complete solutions for pitched roofs, top floor ceilings, facades as well as complete interior construction are available. The competences of the Saint-Gobain Group members Weber, Rigips, Ecophon and Isover are bundled in the individual wizards and tested constructions. Depending on the comfort requirements (energy efficiency, noise and fire protection, room acoustics as well as optics), architects also have the choice between alternative solutions and materials - as well as between constructions for new building and for building renovation.
BIM-Files for Revit and Archicad
In order to further increase planning flexibility, Saint-Gobain not only invests in the depth and breadth of BIM constructions, but also in the range of architecture programmes in which these digital constructions can be used. In addition to solutions in Allplan, also a number of BIM files for Autodesk Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Revit are available. In addition, all 3D objects are compatible with Trimble SketchUp and 3D Studio/3DS.
The secret of the BIM solutions from Saint-Gobain: the individual complete solutions can be applied in the graphic model in a very early planning phase with little expense. Thus, from the outset, all the design and product data required for planning are available digitally and can subsequently be evaluated not only with respect to material quality, quantities and costs, but also for the creation of simulations and the service specifications.
Which advantages does BIM offer during planning?
- Shorter project periods
- Cost and planning security
- Avoidance of planning errors and reduction of (legal) risks
- Well-founded basis for decisions
- Reduced total costs, including the minimization of follow-up costs
- Higher quality of planning and, as a result, the improvement of your competitiveness
