Leading building envelope and solar products specialist, Schueco UK, has announced another UK first a library of aluminium fenestration objects developed specifically for use with Building Information Modeling (BIM).
The library includes windows, doors, sliding doors and sliding/folding doors. In addition, Schuecos range of curtain wall profiles can be assigned to Autodesk Revit generic façade systems.
The move recognises the growing importance of the BIM concept to the future of construction in Britain (it will be mandatory for all government projects over £5 million by 2016) and demonstrates Schueco UKs commitment to technological innovation and to providing an unrivalled level of customer service.
For Schueco Network fabricators, the company will also be launching an important upgrade to its powerful SchuCal+ design, estimating and processing software in early 2013. This will provide a two-way connection between SchuCal+ and Revit and allow architects to send generic drawings which can then be populated with Schueco products.
To assist architects, construction companies and fabricators working with BIM, Schueco UK has set up a dedicated e-mail address to handle project enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
