BIM objects from Style Partitions are now live on the award winning NBS National BIM Library.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) describes the collaborative approach to construction projects via the use of a digital model, ensuring all team members can work to the same standards, providing easily accessible data on every component to integrate design and lifecycle management.
The NBS National BIM Library is the primary source of high quality BIM objects in the UK and the only one to link directly to the market leading NBS specification software. NBS authored BIM objects can be used with the confidence that they are consistent with the industry standard as they ensure that data is complete and in the correct format to allow full collaboration and information exchange throughout a project.
In 2016 it becomes a mandatory requirement in the UK for all centrally procured Government projects to be a fully collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being digital).
“We’ve been working extremely hard to meet the needs of architects and specifiers by making BIM objects accessible and easy to use for key elements of our moveable partitioning wall ranges,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.
“There is no doubt that BIM will shape the future of how buildings and construction projects are designed and specified, and by placing them onto the NBS National BIM Library is an exciting industry first we’re incredibly proud of.”
Style operates through 5 regional offices, evenly spread across the UK to ensure advice and support is never too far away, wherever customers are located. Architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients wishing to understand the impact of BIM, and the action they need to take, can enjoy free advice by contacting their nearest Style office.
“BIM-based planning has become standard practice among architects and construction engineers in the USA, and has also been given high priority in France and in Germany, where the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) is encouraging the widespread use of BIM,” said Julian.
“With publicly financed construction projects adhering to BIM this year, we can see its importance in the UK growing very rapidly – quickly becoming standard practice.”
Rather than simply delivering downloadable 3D objects in different graphical formats, Style’s BIM files on the NBS National BIM Library provide customers with up-to-date, reliable and precise product data for the planning, construction and management of buildings. BIM offers enormous improvements when it comes to saving time and money. It increases the accuracy of estimations, reworks, alterations and the avoidance of error due to the loss of information.
