  • BIM and building product manufacturers
    can pull in geometrical components into their models to then pull in elements of data as and when needed in the design process so not overloading the early stage model with memory hungry data This is very important as many manufacturers overload their products with detailed geometry Rebecca De Cicco Architect at DMA and prominent member of the UK BIM Community Our research report into the Adoption of BIM by Architects indicates the key stages when the product placeholder is exchanged for a specific BIM object Data rich BIM objects can contain a large amount of information about a construction component This information can include detailed dimensions component placement material specifications structural performance fire rating U values carbon content cost maintenance schedules performance and much more Due to their file size they may not be required in the early stage model Indeed dependent on the product type architects may not need a BIM object at all from the manufacturer just the data which they use with their own geometry Our recent research Adoption of BIM by Architects gives detail on what BIM object elements are preferred The data format required is also explored as well as maximum file size For BIM to be an effective specification resource for the building product manufacturer it is important to provide the right level of information at the right time Knowing how your customer is using BIM is key to understanding and so supporting their needs Importantly BIM provides opportunity for building product manufacturers to support specifiers and work in collaboration on design Manufacturers need to think about how they engage with the project team It needs to be in a collaborative manner and not a hard sell As with every effective specification strategy it is important to know your customer and speak their language and position yourself as Trusted Advisor BIM brings with it new terminology so ensure your team are trained and confident in speaking the language And make downloads easily available on your website alongside more traditional forms of product information and details of your CPD seminars The industry is still learning to use BIM and even the leading architects we interviewed all of whom have been using BIM for some time send out mixed messages on everything from the format required to file size and where to host objects So there is no clear one size fits all yet our recent research gives an indication of how individual architect practices are using BIM The research aims to inform BIM strategy for construction product manufacturers so that you can invest effectively to provide leading technical support and engage with architects So what do architects want from building product manufacturers In a nutshell they want the right level of product information at the right stage of the design process together with support that avoids the hard sell What format this information takes Well this could be different dependent on your specific construction product but the BIM journey is not one to avoid
