Style is the first UK Company to be able to offer comprehensive BIM files for key elements of their range of partitioning wall systems.
Delivering more than just downloadable 3D objects in different graphical formats, the DORMA Hüppe BIM tool provides Style’s customers with up-to-date, reliable and precise product data for the planning, construction and management of buildings.
“We see DORMA’S early adoption of BIM as a direct reflection of their continual drive to deliver innovative partitioning systems that out-perform the competition,” comments Julian Sargent, Group MD for Style, the sole distributor for DORMA in the UK.
In packaging the BIM objects applicable to DORMA Hüppe, particular value has been attached to ensuring simple, uncomplicated usage, allowing the objects remain lean and lightweight. Where possible, therefore, graphical extras have been avoided, with the priority being firmly fixed on the technical features and functions of the items concerned.
The models currently being implemented are for Autodesk Revit (.rfa). Development of Graphisoft Archicad (.pln) versions is ongoing, with publication due this year.
