Marley Eternit has launched a new BIM service for fibre cement slates called BIM Space which is available through the website. Leading the way in the industry, Marley Eternit stands as the first UK roofing manufacturer to offer this innovative service.
Developed to help architects, specifiers, contractors and building services engineers, BIM Space has been launched by Marley Eternit using Revit, the market leading BIM software. This new service aims to make life as easy as possible for customers from initial design detailing to material specification, component placement and structural performance.
A typical BIM model or object for fibre cement slate contains detailed dimensions, product specifications, material performance data and the environmental credentials of each product along with image files to create high quality 3D renderings of the building.
In addition to roofing, Marley Eternit also provides BIM details for all its range of façade materials which has detailed specifications for façade type, framing and fixing systems.
