Armstrong Ceilings has marked a milestone with the award-winning NBS National BIM Library by becoming the 100th manufacturer to partner with the fastest-growing BIM library in the UK. Downloadable in the BIM formats Revit and IFC, the Armstrong portfolio of a comprehensive 158 BIM objects includes the manufacturer's passive energy-saving system CoolZone , the Perla range including Perla OP 0.95, the first mineral ceiling tile in the world to win Cradle to Cradle © certification, and the new Ultima+ range. Also included are Armstrong's range of metal lay-in and clip-in tiles and ever-popular Dune range.
This latest stage in the global ceiling systems manufacturer's BIM programme sees the launch of an unprecedented number of BIM objects in the UK where the Government is stipulating that from 2016 all public construction projects are to be built using level 2 BIM.
Armstrong's commercial technical manager EMEA Rob Gardiner said: "This BIM capability makes it even easier for our customers to design and specify projects with our ceiling systems. These BIM objects contain all the relevant product information and performance values and provide a new-generation method of sharing our product data within the building supply chain."
