NVELOPE, the market leader in rainscreen cladding support systems, has launched BIM (Building Information Modelling) objects for its cladding support systems. Designed to assist project teams working in the BIM format, the new objects ensure greater specification detail and accuracy.
Used in the planning and the design stages of a project, BIM is an ideal tool for architects and specifiers to create digital illustrations of buildings, together with detailed technical information, accreditations and other background data. NVELOPE’s NV1, NV2, NV3, NV4, NV5, NV6 and NV7 cladding support systems are now available as BIM objects to help architects and specifiers in the design process.
“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to deliver quick, accurate product information in a format that suits today’s specifiers and architects,” says Mike Smith, Managing Director, NVELOPE Rainscreen Systems Ltd. “As such, we are pleased to be launching our new BIM objects and look forward to our architectural clients benefitting from the use of BIM and NVELOPE products.”
NVELOPE’s BIM objects contain detailed dimensions, product specifications and other key details, along with high quality 3D images to add into virtual models and simulated building designs. They can be found on the NBS National BIM Library and are available in IFC and Revit formats and downloaded and integrated into any BIM software.
For architects who are looking to work with NVELOPE’s products, NVELOPE offers an online Project Builder design and pricing service, which provides a complete, project specific cladding solution for architects and can be easily accessed in the Project Builder section at their website.
